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 Also, the traditional still gallery has been replaced by a deft 10-minute display of the various artwork, narrated by the artists.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

How can you beat that?!
The movie relates to World Religion because it has elements of Indigenous primal religions that were discussed in the subject. Elements such as the village has an oral culture using oral narratives. Which are generational and used symbolic language to pass on their culture. Kenai's tribe was survival focused and very earth based and their religion had elements of Animism/Shamanism. Kenai's village believes that animals have certain spiritual powers. The films message seemed to be the importance of harmony with biological and ecology of nature and animals. Which is an aspect of Indigenous primal religions. The female shaman is seen as a healer, mystical, and nurturing and that was their role in most cultures of Indigenous primal religions.
This film was a great glimpse into the belief of Indigenous Sacred Ways, from the respect of the shaman, the transitional ceremony from boyhood to manhood, the respect for the spirit world and the honor for the beauty of nature. The movie is displayed with precision and craft, from the feeling of how Indigenous people find beauty in the afterlife and the land with its great colorful imagery. We were also even introduced to Hindu/Indigenous Ways with the moose and his individual yoga, along with him acting as a guru and leading the others in yoga. The circle of life was displayed in terms of the animals as well as the humans... We Are One!
