Starbucks Corp. will sell a second movie – this one produced by National Geographic Films, Bloomberg reported today.

The film, called "Arctic Tale," follows the coffee chain’s sales last year of "Akeelah and the Bee."

Bloomberg reported that Starbucks will share the profits from "Arctic Tale," a story about a walrus pup and a polar bear and the impact of global warming, said Ken Lombard, head of Starbucks’ entertainment division.

Starbucks will market the movie at 6,800 stores in the U.S. and Canada and sell DVDs of the film later.
