Warner Bros. is releasing We Bare Bears The Movie on DVDs on 8 September. The movie is based on Cartoon Network’s hit series We Bare Bears executive produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created by two-time Annie Award-winner Daniel Chong.
In the movie, the bears’ love of food trucks and viral videos gets out of hand and catches the attention of the menacing Agent Trout from the National Wildlife Control, who pledges to restore the “natural order” by separating them forever. Trying to seek refuge in Canada, thus begins an epic road trip filled with new friends, dangerous obstacles and massive parties.
Eric Edelstein (Shameless, Clarence), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Me Myself & I) and Demetri Martin (Important Things with Demetri Martin) return as the voices of the bears, along with recurring guest stars Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Ratatouille), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Office), Charlyne Yi (House, Steven Universe) and Jason Lee (Alvin & The Chipmunks, Mallrats).
The movie is already available for purchase from digital retailers, but the DVD version comes with many bonus features including commentary, early sketches, original movie pitches, animatics, pencil tests, and deleted scenes.
“Get ready for lovable bear hugs, internet culture references, and human life lessons we all need to learn in our technologically driven society,” said WBHE senior vice president, originals, animation & family marketing Mary Ellen Thomas in a statement. “We are eager to bring home the laughter and antics of Cartoon Network’s first feature film for the series’ loyal fanbase and the whole family to enjoy.”
Since its debut in 2015, We Bare Bears has earned multiple awards including a BAFTA Children’s Award, a Jury Award for Best TV Series at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and several Annie Awards.
