(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN/VEGAN) I love my morning smoothie. Since discovering the Nutribullet, I drink one almost everyday and truly believe I’m much healthier because of it.

Disneynature Bears is narrated by John C. Reilly and includes a song by Disney's Olivia Holt.

Movie Review: Disneynature’s “Bears”

(MOVIE REVIEW/WILDLIFE) Disneynature struck gold with the documentary, Chimpanzee, back in 2012. Their latest project, Bears, continues to display the same charm that makes Disney movies so great. Centering around a female grizzly, Sky, and her two cubs, Scout and Amber, Bears does a good job of showing the struggles faced by the animals during the cubs’ first year of life. Irreplaceable in his role, Oscar nominee John C. Reilly captures the spirit of the film through his narration, and perfectly expresses the film’s lighthearted moments, as well as its more dramatic scenes. In addition to Reilly, Bears employs actress and singer, Olivia Holt, who performs “Carry On,” at the end of the film, a song written specifically for the documentary. — Global Animal
