One thing has been improved though. Like Tarzan this has a soundtrack boasting with five new songs from music legend Phil Collins, which come better than the ones featured in Tarzan, so there's one good side to it. The only bad area was probably the repeat use of a herd of charging stampede, ruining The Lion King's pride of originality. The plot sounds like it rips off the Emperor's New Groove, but overall it makes the film much better and much more mature.
To end this review, Brother Bear is a great film for the whole family, with it being funny and touching, exactly the same things that made Lilo and Stitch the excellent franchise it is. Compared with that, Brother Bear probably won't become a well-loved Disney classic, but still a classic nonetheless, and a must-have on DVD.
This coming of age tale about a young Native American who is turned magically into a bear, and in doing so learns what it is like to be hunted, is not very subtle and it’s not going to win any Pulitzers, but it’s perfect and familiar Disney territory and was diverting enough and keep my 5 year old watching for a rather short 82 minutes. Disney’s attempt to create another Lion King rather backfired as critics generally gave it a roasting and it did not do well at the box office.
With a few decent songs written and performed by Phil Collins and Tina Turner, lovely old fashioned animation, a few good laughs, and two very funny Moose characters, Brother Bear just about keeps it head above water, even though it’s definitely in the shallow end of the Gene Pool.
Unremarkable, but good looking and engaging.
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. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature, but lost to the fellow Disney/Pixar film Finding Nemo. A sequel, Brother Bear 2, was released on August 29, 2006.
