Disney proudly presents BROTHER BEAR, an epic animated adventure full of comedy and heart. With five great new songs from Academy Award(R) winner Phil Collins (Best Music, Original Song, "You'll Be In My Heart," TARZAN(R), 1999), it's "pure Disney magic from beginning to end!" raves Clay Smith of Access Hollywood. When an impulsive boy named Kenai is magically transformed into a bear, he must literally walk in another's footsteps until he learns some valuable life lessons. His courageous and often zany journey introduces him to a forest full of wildlife, including the lovable bear cub Koda, hilarious moose Rutt and Tuke, woolly mammoths, rambunctious rams, and more! This 2-disc set is loaded with bonus features -- including an outrageously funny "Moose Commentary" starring Rutt and Tuke, outtakes, deleted scenes, games and more! BROTHER BEAR is "a charming, enchanting story for kids of all ages!" ( Larry King, CNN)
Three Viewing Options: Family Friendly Aspect Ratio 1.66:1; Original Theatrical Aspect Ratio 2.35:1; "Rutt & Tuke's Commentary" -- Watch Along With The Hilarious Moose From The Film

Brother Bear is about Kenai (Joaquin Phoenix), a young Native boy who takes revenge on the bear who killed his older brother. When his brother's spirit sees what he's doing, he changes Kenai into a Bear to make him see through the animals point-of-view.
AMAZING! I was really impressed at how well done this movie is. I have to admit that this is one of my favorite animated films to date. The music by Phil Collins and (surprise!) Tina Turner are great! The score really stands out too, especially during the exciting transformation scene. Though, not as much music as my second favorite animated film, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, this one still delivers and music placement is put in where music is needed. The story is a bit strong and there are some scary scenes that may frighten little children, but other than that, the kids will forget about it when the two hilarious Moose, Rutt and Tuke, arrive on-screen (voiced wonderfully by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas). The Animation mixed in with a few CGI's are fantastic! as is the detail and the usage of the widescreen scope is used to the fullest extent. I was reading around and one reviewer said that this is a collaboration of all of the Disney themes, such as family in 'The Lion King', the transformation of 'The Little Mermaid', the Natives in 'Pocahontas' and the collaboration of Phil Collins again, just like in 'Tarzan'. I do agree with this and found it incredibly interesting that there are similarities which I welcome to with open arms.Read more ›
Brother Bear is the coming of age story of three brothers. The youngest is supposed to find love before he can become a man...and learn the meaning of the word. He wants strength and honor, not love. In order to teach him a lesson the spirit of his older brother turns him into a bear. He sees things from a different perspective and learns to love. The characters in the movie are what make this predictable tale so great. Rick Moranis is the voice of one moose. It's almost like the moose came straight out of Strange Brew. Very funny!
Definitely watch this...even if you don't have kids.
The story: The story was wonderfully seriouse. I'm not sure little kids will understand how seriouse the plot really is. I love that Disney is showing a backbone and making animated films a little more seriouse so older kids like myself can take an interest in them. Anyway, yes, the story is about broadening your mind and seeing things from different points of veiws, learning from those that are different than you, and appreciating those who are already close to you.
It all starts when Kenai's brother is killed by a bear who was only protecting her cub. Kenai is of course upset and sets off to seek revenge. He finds the bear and kills it. Kenai's Brother who is now a spirit turns Kenai into a bear himself to teach him why killing the bear in the first place was wrong.
Though the story is seriouse and deals with seriouse things (as life does) it's also wonderfully lighthearted and entertaining. The animals are full of character and are very funny and sweet.
Beautiful! I noticed the linework was a little thicker than usual Disney standard, and the highlight and shadows were also quite thick, but it didn't irk me too much.
The painted backgrounds were EXQUISITE. The character designs are my favorite aspect of this movie. Kenai's character in particular. His facial expressions and character in general are extremely likeable.
One of my favorite things about this movie are the northern lights scenes, though. Gorgeous.
The music: Some of it is wonderful, some of it is a little hokey. Luckily, there are NO spontanious every-character-busts-into-song-moments in this movie wich I liked alot. :) They used the music as a guideline of emotion in the scenes, not as a cheap thrill for kids to sing along to.
I'd say this is a good movie for any age. :) I've watched it twice in 1 day already.
