Cartoon Network today announced that We Bare Bears The Movie will officially release for purchase on digital platforms next month on June 8th. This marks the first-ever movie for the franchise, which features three lovable, talking bears as they explore life in the woods and city. In addition to the release date, Cartoon Network 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.
"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," Cartoon Network says of the movie's plot in the announcement. "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."
