Cartoon Network’s beloved bears return big this summer with their first TV movie, “We Bare Bears The Movie,” available for purchase exclusively on digital platforms beginning Monday, June 8. Created by Annie Award-winner Daniel Chong, and produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the movie follows Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear on their greatest adventure yet.
Eric Edelstein, Demetri Martin and Bobby Moynihan return as the lovable bears Grizz, Ice Bear and Panda, with recurring guest stars Cameron Esposito, Ellie Kemper, Jason Lee, Patton Oswalt, Mel Rodriguez and Charlyne Yi. The movie will also feature special guest stars such as Marc Evan Jackson, K-pop star Amber Liu, and Jimmy O. Yang.
“We hope that by accelerating the release of this wonderful, feel-good family TV movie, we can bring a little joy into homes sooner than originally planned,” Rob Sorcher, chief content officer, Cartoon Network
In “We Bare Bears The Movie,” when the bears’ love of food trucks and viral videos gets out of hand, it catches the attention of the menacing Agent Trout from the National Wildlife Control, who pledges to restore the “natural order” by separating them forever. Chased from their home, Grizz decides there’s only one thing they can do to find refuge – move to Canada! The Bears embark on an epic road trip filled with new friends, dangerous obstacles, and massive parties. But most importantly, the perilous journey will force the Bears to face how they first met and became brothers, in order to keep their family bond from splitting apart.
Distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE), the movie will be available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada on participating platforms including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, for $14.99.
Since its debut in 2015, the Emmy-nominated “We Bare Bears” has earned numerous 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. Fans around the world, most notably in the APAC region, have embraced the show for its portrayal of Asian pop culture. Just last year, the episode entitled “Panda’s Birthday” featured the global sensation K-pop band, Monsta X.
