Brother Bear / Brother Bear 2
25 March 2013
Conclusion: 'Brother Bear' is one of the more easily forgettable titles in Disney's catalog. There's nothing about it that stands out. It's far too standard for its own good. It's like they recycled a bunch of Disney stories and threw them together and made this. It's no surprise that this movie came out of a time period in Disney's history that produced a string of not-so-memorable movies.
Excerpt: The youngest of three brothers, Kenai finds his life shattered when his oldest brother is killed in a bear attack. The bond with his brother was so strong, Kenai is overcome with grief and confusion. He thinks that if he hunts down the bear, he can find some peace, so he tracks down the animal. But when he in turn kills the bear, a mystical event unfolds and Kenai is transformed into a bear himself, so quite a reversal.
Summary: Disney is keenly aware of the appeal and reach of its catalog, down to the best and worst films under the Mouse House banner. Titles like Cinderella and Peter Pan arrive separately and to great fanfare, while other titles shuffle onto shelves en masse, sans the red-carpet treatment afforded their Platinum and Diamond Edition brethren.
