'Polar Bear' Directors Talk Challenges of New Disney Plus Nature Documentary

 Polar Bear Disney Plus filmmaker interview

Disney+'s nature documentary Polar Bear launches on Earth Day April 22. CineMovie spoke with directors/producers Jeff Wilson and Alastair Fothergill who give us insight into what went into finding the mom bear and her two cubs and how they went about capturing the arctic animals in their rapidly declining habitat.

Narrated by two-time Academy Award® nominee Catherine Keener (“Capote,” “Being John Malkovich”), Disneynature’s Polar Bear tells the story of a new mother whose memories of her own youth prepare her to navigate motherhood in the increasingly challenging world that polar bears face today. Helmed by Alastair Fothergill and Jeff Wilson, the directing team behind Disneynature’s “Penguins,” and produced by Fothergill, Wilson, Jason Roberts, Keith Scholey and Roy Conli, “Polar Bear” launches exclusively on Disney+ on April 22, 2022.
