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)
Disney changes how they have been delivering their recent theatrical hits and improves the DVD experience. Gone is the creators' commentary track; instead there's a robust 45-minute feature on the making of the film that opens up the audience to older kids interested in the craft. The commentary track is for laughs with the MacKenzie Brothers-influenced moose Rutt & Tuke (SCTV alumnus Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas) having a good old time; it's a treat for adults as kids. Also, the traditional still gallery has been replaced by a deft 10-minute display of the various artwork, narrated by the artists. All the deleted scenes are voiced and in various forms of animation; additionally there is a Phil Collins song that was not used in the film. Disney reaches into Pixar's bag of tricks with "outtakes" that kids will love, along with the two above-average set-top games. Connoisseurs should appreciate the options: both 2.35 and 1.77 widescreen formats are offered as well as 5.1 Dolby and DTS sound. --Doug Thomas

Spoiler alert! We love the story! It’s about a boy who is turned into a bear. He stays with a little bear in hopes to become a man again. He decides to stay with this little bear because of the bond they share. They become like brothers. The second one is also good about the same bear falling in love.
It shows the importance of the Great Spirit in the everyday lives of the Native American people. They believe that the Great Spirit controls all the goings on in the world from winter turning to spring or the tadpole turning into a frog. Everything is connected to the Great Spirit. This is why Native Americans show respect and awe to nature. It shows a shaman divining truth from nature such as the need of a boy turning into a man. They show the respect given to those who pass on and how they become one with nature, and how the spirits of the deceased can interact with the living. All in all, this is a very good movie by Disney.
How can you beat that?!
The idea that "Great Spirits" influence us, watch over us, and are a part of the existence of life is brought to life with a story of a native boy coming into manhood. His "totem" is love. I would think symbolizing the love that people should have for their surroundings in nature and in animals. This native boy, Kenai, seeks revenge on a bear that he feels is responsible for his brother's life. Kenai kills the bear and for doing so the "Great Spirits", which his brother is now a part of, transform him into a bear to learn love.
He is befriended by a young cub that he is first annoyed with, but through their adventures together, he learns to love the cub as his brother. Kenai, is disturbed to find out that he and his brothers were the ones responsible for the death of the cubs mother. He gets to see the event through different eyes, through the eyes of the cub. This amounts in an eye opening experience for Kenai. Kenai becomes a man by becoming a bear.
This movie relates to many indigenous religions of the world today in many ways. Many religions have a strong belief that nature and humans are intertwined, that death is just another reality. Many religions see that birth is coming from the spirit world and death is the return to the spirit world. Just like the indigenous religions of Africa, where they view the spirit world as part of everyday life, and the spirits as ancestors that they commune with through rituals. Some religions view the help of the spirit world essential in their lives, culture, and religious beliefs.
