Get your popcorn ready as Griz, Panda and Ice Bear's very own full-length animated film finally premieres this Saturday.
In Cartoon Network’s animated feature We Bare Bears: The Movie, fans will see the trio embark on “an epic road trip filled with new friends, dangerous obstacles, and massive parties” in a bid to escape a National Wildlife Control agent who vowed to restore the "natural order" by separating them forever.
“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,” the official synopsis of the film reads. “Chased from their home, Grizz decides there’s only one thing they can do to find refuge – move to Canada! 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.”
Fans of the animated series can also share their live reactions by including the #CNWatchParty and #WeBareBears hashtags to their social media posts during the film’s debut.
We Bare Bears: The Movie is slated to premiere on Cartoon Network APAC, HBO Go, Boomerang, OhK TV Asia, Warner TV Asia, HBO Asia, HBO Family, CN Watch and Play App on September 12 at 11 a.m.
Since We Bare Bears made its debut in 2015, the animated TV series garnered multiple awards such as a BAFTA Children’s Award, a Jury Award for Best TV Series at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and several Annie Awards. The series follows the story of three bear siblings: Grizz (Eric Edelstein), Panda (Bobby Moynihan), and Ice Bear (Demetri Martin) "who lean on each another while trying to fit in and turn ordinary situations into laugh-out-loud funny moments."
