Format: Hardcover
Not as fun as Lilo & Stitch's "Art Of" book, but very good, very informative. It's a more serious approach...as the film started out with a more serious story. This is detailed by the creators and writers as they recall the story problems that started plaguing the film, the lives of the team...how the directors were directing for the first time...
This book details the creative process very well, not technically, but emotionally, the process of bringing a story from idea to film. Along the way, we're treated to wonderful production art of the Pacific Northwest, mimicking the American painters of the frontier, but softed to a more impressionistic scale, almost...
Also included are storyboards, stills from the film. The book is very nicely built and designed. It's divided into 9 chapters: Introduction, Creation, Brotherhood, Mythmakers, Vision, Trial, Transformation, Wisdom, Epilogue...
If you collect these books (as I've started to do), are anticipating Brother Bear, or like Disney, this will be a nice addition to your collection. Though less whimsical than Lilo's book (and less whimsical than Lilo & Stitch, as a film), it's an insightful look into the world of cinematic animation...and it whets your appetite for the film itself.

Format: Hardcover
Owning many of Disney's feature film art books my comments are based solely on the format of this recent publication. Shrunken down to less than letter size paper for a broader appeal and obviously reduced pricing, Disney has cheapened what could have been a phenomenal addition to one's collection to yet another disposable. Great art reduced to the size of playing cards and thumbnails serves only to make one want more of the real thing. A bit too verbose for the core audience, the long winded story telling takes over leaving the too few but absolutely beautiful illustrations, inspirational sketches, animation tests & story boards so small that one can only do justice to the work with a magnifying glass.
