Brother Bear is a 2003 traditionally-animated feature produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 1, 2003, the forty-third animated feature in the Disney animated features canon. In the film, an Inuit boy pursues a bear in revenge for a battle that he provoked in which his oldest brother is killed. He tracks down the bear and kills it, but the Spirits, angered by this needless death, change the boy into a bear himself as punishment. Originally titled Bears, it was the third and final Disney animated feature produced primarily by the Feature Animation studio at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida; the studio was shut down in March 2004, not long after the release of this film in favor of computer animated features.[1] A direct-to-video sequel, Brother Bear 2, followed in 2006.

Summary

Kenai receiving his totem.
Kenai receiving his totem.

Long ago in a post-ice age North America, there were three brothers named Kenai, Denahi, and Sitka. Denahi, the middle brother, and Sitka, the oldest, work hard. They think Kenai should work more and play less. Kenai, the youngest, hates bears because they fight for the same food, overtake the land, and ruin his coming-of-age ceremony. Each brother was given his own totem when they came of age: Sitka, the eagle of guidance and Denahi, the wolf of wisdom. At the ceremony, Kenai is presented with the bear of love. Kenai questions the totem he has been given: "You think love has anything to do with being a man?!" Image File history File links Kenai-brotherbear-totem. ...

When Sitka is killed in a battle with a bear that Kenai provoked, Tanana, the tribal shaman woman, officiates a funeral rite for Sitka. Afterward, Kenai throws away his totem and ignores the village teachings of brotherhood with animals. He sets out to hunt the bear for revenge and eventually kills it. Angered by Kenai's actions, the Great Spirits, through the spirit of Sitka, transform him into a bear while singing "Everything will become clear to you, when you see things through another's eyes." Unfortunately his other brother, who was pursuing Kenai to stop him, doesn't realize what has happened. He finds Kenai's torn clothes and believes the bear he sees took his brother's life. In grief, he remembers Kenai's words to him and, as he had done, vows revenge. http://www. ...

Disoriented and falling into the river, Kenai awakens on the shore and in the presence of Tanana, who eases him through his initial shock at his change. Although she cannot understand his bear speech, she advises Kenai to find the mountain where the lights touch the earth so that he can ask Sitka's spirit to change him back, and then she disappears without giving him directions. To Kenai's surprise, he finds he can talk with the other animals - but the only animals who are willing to talk to him are two sibling moose, named Rutt and Tuke, who are more interested in cracking jokes at Kenai's claims to have been a man than helping him. Along the way, Kenai meets a talkative, pesky bear cub named Koda who saves him from a trap, and asks him to accompany him on the way to the salmon run where the bears gather to fish near the mountain where the lights touch the earth. For other uses, see Moose (disambiguation). ... Koda is a fictional character from the Disney movies Brother Bear and Brother Bear 2. ... For other uses, see Salmon (disambiguation). ...


What follows is a journey in which Kenai, when not dodging Denahi who is now hunting him, grows rather fond of the irrepressible Koda who he learns shares his spiritual beliefs. This in turn puts his hatred of bears in a stark perspective that forces him to reconsider, especially when he learns that Koda sees humans as the same sort of dangerous monsters as he himself once believed bears to be. This culminates when they finally reach the salmon run and Kenai has the awkward experience of being surrounded by bears. Yet, the bears quickly accept him and he in turn learns about the loving community of these animals that makes his hate seem so foolish even as he learns to enjoy himself. For other uses, see Community (disambiguation). ...


This contentment is shattered when Koda tells the story of his separation from his mother. Kenai is aghast as he puts the pieces together and realizes the story is about the fight he and his brothers had with the bear. Kenai realizes to his horror that the bear he killed was Koda's mother. Distraught at the harm he has done to a cub he has grown to love, Kenai flees the gathering. The next morning Koda follows and asks what's wrong. With great shame and remorse, but also with great moral courage, Kenai confesses. At this traumatic revelation, Koda is left grief stricken and runs away in loss and betrayal while ignoring Kenai's apologies and pleas for forgiveness. For other uses, see Shame (disambiguation). ... People feel remorse when reflecting on their actions that they believe are wrong. ... It has been suggested that Anticipatory Grief be merged into this article or section. ... For other uses, see Forgiveness (disambiguation). ...


With nothing left to keep him with the bears, Kenai scales the mountain to contact the spirit of Sitka. Koda mourns alone, but then has a chance encounter with the squabbling Tuke and Rutt who reconcile because of their brotherhood, which makes Koda realize the importance of his friendship with Kenai. Meanwhile, Denahi finally tracks down Kenai; in the ensuing fight, Koda, having forgiven Kenai, rushes in to help at a critical moment in the fight. Kenai struggles to protect Koda and is willing to sacrifice himself to save the cub, much as Koda's mother had done. With this selfless act, Kenai shows that he has profoundly changed for the better and Sitka, who had been watching everything in the form of an eagle, changes Kenai back into a human. Marcus Aurelius and members of the Imperial family offer sacrifice in gratitude for success against Germanic tribes: contemporary bas-relief, Capitoline Museum, Rome For other uses, see Sacrifice (disambiguation). ...


Yet, while Kenai has regained his humanity, he can no longer talk with Koda, a cub who is now orphaned yet again by the bear he had come to accept as his brother. Rather than abandon Koda, Kenai tells Sitka that Koda needs him. Denahi calls Kenai "little brother" instead of "baby brother" and Sitka transforms Kenai (by his choice) back into a bear. He and his brother hug together and say goodbye, while Koda and his mother's spirit do the same. For other uses, see Human nature (disambiguation). ...


The film ends with Kenai as a bear, accompanied by Koda, being welcomed back by his tribe and pressing his pawprint to the cliff wall, which bears the handprints of countless generations of other tribe members who also fulfilled the calling of their totem animals.

Critical reaction

The reaction from film reviewers was mixed with many panning the film as a retread of older Disney films like The Lion King and the 20th Century Fox film Ice Age (although Brother Bear began production before Ice Age did), while others defended the film as a legitimate variation of the theme. The popular movie critics Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper have given positive reviews of the film.[2] This article is about Disneys 1994 film. ... Twentieth (20th) Century Fox Film Corporation (known from 1935 to 1985 as Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation) is one of the six major American film studios. ...

Richard Roeper (born October 17, 1959)[1] is a columnist/film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times and, since September of 2000, has co-hosted the television series At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper with fellow film critic Roger Ebert. ...


Of note to many critics and viewers was the use of the film's aspect ratio as a storytelling device. The film begins at a standard widescreen aspect ratio of 1.75:1 (similar to the 1.85:1 ratio common in U.S. cinema or the 1.78:1 ratio of HDTV), while Kenai is a human; in addition, the film's art direction and color scheme are grounded in realism. After Kenai transforms into a bear twenty-four minutes into the picture, the film itself transforms as well: to an anamorphic aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and towards brighter, more fanciful colors and slightly more caricatured art direction. Brother Bear was the first feature since The Horse Whisperer to do a widescreen shift. It was the only animated feature to do this trick, until The Simpsons Movie and Enchanted in 2007.

Box office and home video

Brother Bear made $85,336,277 during its domestic theatrical run and then went on to earn $164,700,000 outside the U.S., bringing its worldwide total to $250,383,219, which is considered successful.

Pop culture references

  • Ice Age - A scene with the Mammoth herd trampling through the scene from left to right, especially the shot with the feet stepping into the same footprints. Also, the bears sleeping in the Mammoth tusk (like Sid the sloth in Ice Age).
  • The Land Before Time - Tanana says "Yep yep yep", which is Ducky's favorite quote.
  • Lilo and Stitch - An Inuit child in the "Great Spirits" scene resembles Lilo. In the outtakes on the DVD, Stitch is shown in the first blooper replacing a chipmunk dubbed "What's-his-name" in the DVD's Moose Commentary.
  • The Lion King - During On My Way, Kenai is seen sleeping by Koda on a rock, a reference to Pride Rock. Also similar to The Lion King is that the elk stampede at beginning is played as a gag. On the DVD, one can choose to watch the film with commentary by the two moose, Rutt and Tuke. At one scene, Rutt and Tuke comment on what animals they would like to change into; Tuke says he'd like to be a lion. Rutt insists that that's already happened in the film The Lion King. Tuke replies "No moose ever turned into a lion in The Lion King!".
  • Second City TV - The two moose are actually recreations of Bob and Doug MacKenzie, from Second City Television, and their own movie Strange Brew.
  • The Sword in the Stone - Kenai's line "I'm not a beaver, I'm bea- no, I mean I'm not a bear, I'm a MAN!" is a reference to Merlin's line: "I am not a boy, I'm a squirre-, I mean I'm not a squirrel, I'm a boy, no, I'm... I'm an old man!".
  • The Sound of Music - The background where "On My Way" starts resembles the landscape from where Fräulein Maria sings "The Sound of Music".

Trivia

  • The film was released on November 1, 2003, a Saturday. The announced reason was to avoid opening the film on a Halloween Friday, because Disney believed that kids would rather trick-or-treat than go to the movies.[5]
  • The film premiered on Disney Channel in the United States on August 3, 2007.
  • This was Jason Raize's only film (he died in 2004). He was the voice of Denahi. Previously, Raize played Simba in the Broadway musical version of The Lion King.
  • Andy Hui and Alex Fong provided the voices of Denahi and Kenai respectively in the Cantonese version of the film. Andy Hui also sang all of the film's songs.
  • This film was the subject of an anti-cell phone ad. In it, Rutt and Tuke talk to the viewers, when one of mooses' phone rings and they start speaking and walk off the screen.
  • The names for the characters come from various locations in Alaska and Canada, e.g.: Sitka, Kenai (however, this name is also the inuit word for the Black Bear), Tanana and others. However, in the Rutt and Tuke commentary, it is stated that the characters were named after random SUVs, which is false.
  • There is a post-credits scene in which Koda appears at the salmon run by himself and says that in accordance with Wildlife Regulations no fish were harmed in the film. However, a fish, screaming, comes flopping into the background with a large bear chasing after it, when Koda starts signaling for the camera to cut and cover the lens with his paws and the screen goes black. Then, you hear Koda groaning and the larger bear is then heard belching, signifying that he ate the fish.
  • The film was nominated for an Academy Award in 2003 for Best Animated Feature Film, but lost to another Disney release, the computer animated Finding Nemo.
  • Kenai and Koda now appear at Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, FL and Disney's California Adventure of Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA as meet and greet characters.
  • Veteran voice actor, Nancy Cartwright (of Simpsons fame) served as a voice coach for the film.
  • During the DVD commentary by Rutt and Tuke, the moose comment that they have seen Kenai's bear amulet for sale in the Vancouver Airport giftshop and Sitka's for sale in the Calgary Airport giftshop. They are referring to the heavy influence of Native Canadian art in Western Canada, particularly in British Columbia.

Brother Bear (649 words)
"Brother Bear" is the latest in a long string of formulaic manufactured junk that points out the disparity between Disney's "product" and the terrific films from their former partner Pixar.
In reality, "Brother Bear" can't touch the routine but clever quality of the latest direct-to-video Pooh video or even the delightful "The Lion King 1 1/2." Both those films show the creative spark missing from this dud.
Kenai (Joaquin Phoenix) faces a trial by fire after killing a bear in revenge for the death of his oldest brother, he himself is turned into a bear.
