Cartoon Network’s beloved bears will make a comeback this summer with their first TV movie, We Bare Bears The Movie, available for purchase exclusively on digital platforms beginning 8 June. The broadcaster also shared the first trailer for the film as well as an official poster/key art featuring Grizz, Ice Bear, and Panda as well as the movie’s antagonist, Agent Trout.
Eric Edelstein, Demetri Martin and Bobby Moynihan return to star as the lovable bears Grizz, Ice 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 and K-pop star Amber Liu.
“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,” Cartoon Network said of the movie’s plot in the announcement.
Since its debut in 2015, 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.
Distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the movie will be available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada on participating platforms including iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
