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.

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
