Overview

An old friendship is renewed and new bonds are forged as Kenai and Nita set out on the adventure of a lifetime in this animated, direct-to-video sequel to the 2003 Disney hit Brother Bear. When Kenai emerges from his first hibernation with a hearty appetite and a craving for the best spring berries around, he takes his younger brother Koda to Crowberry Ridge for a delicious feast. As Rutt and Tuke scour the landside looking for some female companionship, Kenai is surprised to find his childhood friend Nita venturing into the wilderness with a pressing problem that only Kenai can solve. It appears as if the amulet given to Nita by Kenai has much greater power than either of them had previously thought, and in order to marry, the old friends must travel back to Hokani Falls to burn the amulet together. Now, as the pair travel over icy mountain ranges and down raging rivers, the plan set into motion by the Great Spirits for Nita and Kenai slowly begins to come into focus.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Feasting on the first berries of spring preoccupies Kenai and his adopted younger brother, Koda, who are off to Cranberry Ridge in this direct-to-disc Disney sequel to the 2003 theatrical release Brother Bear. Kenai, the young Inuit hunter who transformed into a bear in the original, now speaks with the voice of Patrick Dempsey Grey's Anatomy rather than Joaquin Phoenix. And it rings true to hear TV’s "Dr. McDreamy" in this spring fever-themed tale, as the increasingly mature seven-foot grizzly Kenai encounters the young Inuit woman Nita Mandy Moore, to whom as a human child he’d pledged lifelong friendship. The spirits have put the skids on Nita’s arranged marriage; and the shaman Innoko explains that the only way for her to get on with her life is by traveling with Kenai to Hokani Falls and burning the amulet that binds them together. They have but three days to reach their destination. En route, former feelings between the two resurface, and Koda becomes worried his big brother will choose to become human again to be with Nita. Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis reprise their scene-stealing roles as the Mackenzie-esque moose brothers, Toque and Rut. In a welcome casting coup, they are joined by fellow SCTV cast members Andrea Martin and Catherine O'Hara as the "moosettes" they try awkwardly to impress. Some of the anachronistic dialogue smacks of pandering and the maxims are somewhat clichéd, but Brother Bear 2 is something of a benchmark for Disney. This is a direct-to-video sequel that doesn't play like the pilot to a proposed TV series, and whose often-stunning animation is theatrical quality. Beauty, eh?

    A Rare Disney Sequel

    My mom bought me this movie and I absolutely love it. It's that rare Disney sequel that's as good as the original. It even makes up the original movie's one flaw -Phil Collin's sappy songs - by replacing it with heartwarming music by Josh Kelley and Melissa Etheridge. The "Brother Bear" series wisely keeps its breathtaking animation, creative storytelling, magic, excitement, and emotion. I really loved the whole Kenai/Nita relationship. It's like "Beauty and the Beast" for a new generation. "Brother Bear 2" also has messages of courage, sacrifices, true love, and following your heart. So if you love animated movies filled romance, beauty, and happy endings, I totally recommend this movie to you.
