We Bare Bears: The Movie will mark the end of the TV series
Chong, the show’s creator, has confirmed that the film will also serve as the conclusion of the animated series. But as the old saying goes: All’s well that ends well.
“There’s a spin-off and it’s in good hands. I’m still the executive producer on it but I also have moved on and I am working on a new project that I hope people will be excited about when it comes out. You also don’t want to overstay your welcome. I feel that the movie just put a really nice end to our show,” he said an interview.
We Bare Bears: The Movie will be available in Asia through Boomerang, Warner TV Asia, OhK TV Asia, HBO Asia, HBO Family, HBO Go, and the Cartoon Network Watch and Play App.
