Today Disney+ released a new trailer, poster and image for Disneynature’s upcoming feature film Polar Bear. The film, narrated by Catherine Keener, follows a new mother and her cubs trying to navigate through the current challenges facing polar bears in their Arctic home. Subscribers can watch this extraordinary journey when it debuts on the streamer as part of their Earth Day celebration on April 22, 2022.
Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund also announced that they will continue their longstanding commitment to caring for wildlife and their habitats by supporting Polar Bears International (PBI), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping protect polar bear mothers, cubs and their Arctic home.
“Polar Bears International is an exceptional organization doing exceptional work for both the polar bears and the environment in which they live,” said Roy Conli, Polar Bear producer. “They bring essential awareness to the general populace of what’s going on in the Arctic and the realities polar bears face today, and inspire us all to take action to positively change the future for this species. I’m so proud that we’re working with their incredible team.”
“Disneynature’s engaging and beautiful films are known for their ability to tug at the heart and inspire people to care,” said Krista Wright, executive director of Polar Bears International. “We’re thrilled to be working with such a creative team as they tell the story of a polar bear mom as she navigates a changing Arctic. We’re also extremely grateful to Disneynature and the Disney Conservation Fund for their generous support of our work to protect moms and cubs as well as our other polar bear conservation efforts.”
