DisneyNature Bears

DisneyNature has done it again. This time it is a year in the life of a Bear family. We follow Sky, the mother, and her two cubs Scout and Amber through the first year of their life. We start with their birth and we follow them cross the Alaska wilderness from the snowy mountains to the rivers full of salmon. It is spectacular scenery, breath taking views and a prodigious insight into the life of Bears. I saw DisneyNature-Bears in the theatre and paid movie going prices, you can place a hold now and see it for free from your library. We also have many more movies you may be interested in, come on in and take a look or go to our KPL website and browse from home.

Rise of the Guardians

The Easter Bunny is Australian and Santa Clause is Russian. Rise of the Guardians is an animated movie where the boggy man is trying to take over the dreams of children and make them forget the Easter Bunny, Santa Clause, the tooth fairy etc. Jack Frost is coaxed to join the Guardians and help fight off Pitch (the Boogeyman). I found this to be a delightful film. I liked that the Easter Bunny, played by Hugh Jackman, was Australian. This was not a scary movie but it is rated PG. Give it a try. This and many others movies are available at KPL.

From Up On Poppy Hill

Set in Yokohama Japan prior to the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics, this animated story of passionate students fighting for the preservation of a beloved school building slated for demolition parallels the romantic story of two young teens and the mysterious history that binds them together. The film will appeal to all ages but teens and tweens may be its biggest audience. Maudlin and sweet, From Up On Poppy Hill can be viewed with either the original Japanese or the English language version.
