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.
ISLAND OF LEMURS
MADAGASCAR ADVENTUREDistant African cousins of bears, ever so delightful and mischievous lemurs await you in ISLAND OF LEMURS: MADAGASCAR family documentary film this April as well. Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman narrates the documentary about the incredible true story of nature’s greatest explorers — lemurs. Captured with IMAX 3D cameras ISLAND OF LEMURS: MADAGASCAR takes audiences on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar. Lemurs arrived there as castaways millions of years ago and evolved into hundreds of diverse species but are now highly endangered. Join trailblazing scientist Patricia Wright on her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.
You can never go wrong with bears and lemurs. Happy new year and best 2014 wishes to you!ReplyDelete
that also goes for coons and possums, Debs :)Delete
Happy New Year DezmondReplyDelete
Thanks, Andrew, wishing you the sameDelete
Ha! No, I didn't wake up in an alley with strange cats licking my face. Just my strange dog. :PPReplyDelete
Lemurs and bears and rats, oh my, what a great New Years Day post, Dezzy. You've brought out the naturalist in me. I'd watch either of those shows.
Happy New Year to you. Wishing you all good things for 2014. You deserve it. :)))
Well, you never how much my readers could end up drunk and wake up in curious places on the first morning of the new year :)Delete
Such delightful two trailers, aren't they?
PS I think I might have a post on OUTLANDER later this week with tones of set pics :)
Hey - these sound great. I'm hoping they're accurate and don't Disney-ize them too much. Thanks for posting about them! Love that Bears cover!ReplyDelete
I love the bear poster too, Terry!Delete
Hey Dezzy - Popped in to say Hello 2014 and Happy Dezzy. Wait, I messed that up. Or did I?????ReplyDelete
Wishing you lots of good cake bakes and a fun productive 2014. Cheers and a great BIG BOOGIE BOOGIE.
yes Happy Dezzy would be a nice wish, since Dezzy hasn't been that in decades :)Delete
Here's this being YOUR year.Delete
would be a lovely changeDelete
They are perfect films for you, my dear Dezz !!ReplyDelete
indeed, you know how much I love animals!Delete
Bears are so popular these days! Have a Happy New Year, Dezzy.ReplyDelete
How could they not be, they're so adorable :) Thanks, you too!Delete
Bears looks good to me since it is done at a distance watching them behave in their environment. I cry at these kind of things, just seeing these exquisite animals with their sensory systems, bodies and brains perfectly adapted to their habitat. Lemurs, well they will make me laugh.ReplyDelete
Darling, did I somehow miss your hotty special?
I didn't have a hotty special, dear, but a touching one at Christmas :)Delete
Lemurs are such circus stars :)
I remember when Disney was on weekly, and had many nature stories. Of course, now there is AnimalPlanet to watch, but I miss those days. Guess I'm getting sentimental about my childhood in my old age :)ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Dezzy.
Most of shows which resemble these movies can be seen at Discovery, Animal Planet mostly shows cats from hell, pet rescues and such shows which make you sad instead of happy :(Delete
What great trailers! Thanks for sharing:) Happy New Year's, Dez.ReplyDelete
glad you enjoyed them, SandraDelete
