Well, what better way to wake up in the first day of the new year than with the sight of animals (unless you woke up drunk this morning in some dark alley with angry rats and peculiar looking cats starring at you hungrily)? Let us check out some of the 2014 films which will have animals as the main stars:
THE STORY OF CARING FAMILY
In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure BEARS showcases a year in the life of two mother bears as they impart life lessons to their impressionable young cubs. Set against a majestic Alaskan backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting, but risky, as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bear families must work together to find food, ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run, while staying safe from predators, including an ever-present wolf pack. Coming out this April, BEARS captures the fast-moving action and suspense of life in one of the planet’s last great wildernesses, where mothers definitely know best and their cubs’ survival hinges on family togetherness.
