Disney proudly presents BROTHER BEAR, an epic animated adventure full of comedy and heart. With five great new songs from Academy Award winner Phil Collins 1999 Best Original Song, "You'll Be In My Heart," from TARZANR, 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! BROTHER BEAR is "a charming, enchanting story for kids of all ages!" Larry King, CNN
Brother Bear has a dramatic story--after he kills a bear, a young hunter named Kenai voiced by Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator in prehistoric North America is turned into a bear himself and hunted by his own brother--but the animated movie's tone is more earnest and warm than tragic, focusing on the unfolding relationship between Kenai and an orphaned bear cub named Koda voiced by Jeremy Suarez. However, it's often the comic supporting characters who prove the most popular, and a pair of moose voiced by Rick Moranis and Doug Thomas in their McKenzie brothers/Canadian dude mode from SCTV and the movie Strange Brew will win many fans. The songs by Phil Collins are typically negligible, but the hand-drawn animation is lush occasional flashes of computer-generated animation clash with the movie's overall look. Kids will also enjoy the mammoths; no sabre-toothed tigers, unfortunately. --Bret Fetzer
