Film: An Arctic Tale
An Arctic Tale is a 2007 documentary that follows a polar bear, Nanu, and a walrus, Seela.

Tropes:

  • Babies Ever After: The movies closes with Nanu giving birth to two cubs of her own and Seela birthing a female calf.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Queen Latifah is the narrator.
  • Green Aesop: Throughout the film, narrator Queen Latifah makes allusions to how the rising temperature is affecting the animals in the ice kingdom. A message at the end of the animal footage notes that if the current trend continues, there will be no Arctic ice remaining by the year 2040
  • Heel-Face Turn: The male polar bear.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Under attack by a polar bear, Seela is rescued by her aunt. However, the polar bear has more power on land and she dies while giving Seela precious time to escape.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Nanu and her brother's mother lets them know that other polar bears are just as apt to kill them as anyone else.
  • Not So Different: Despite the prey-predator relationship between walruses and polar bears, filmmaker Adam Ravetch noted that the experience filming them made him "realize that both have quite a lot in common."
  • Polar Bears and Penguins: Being a nature documentary, this is completely averted.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Took a Level in Badass: Arguably Nanu's willingness to face up against a gaint male polar bear for the share of his kill, despite being near death herself.
