I am, like many of us, a huge fan of Disney movies, and Brother Bear is one of my absolute favorites. I found myself watching it again recently, and I think you should definitely make some time to watch it again too. In a world as crazy as the one we live in now, Brother Bear takes us to a simpler time, yet still preaches life lessons that rein true in today's world.
1. The Soundtrack
Two words...Phil Collins. From "On My Way" to "Look Through My Eyes," Collins creates a soundtrack to be remembered for ages. Even now I can still remember the words to every single song from this film.
2. The Animation
Anyone who's seen this film knows how beautifully done it was, from the characters to the picturesque backgrounds.
3. The Culture
Inspired by Native American legends and the Inuit people, Brother Bear takes us back to The Ice Age, and gives us a glimpse into a life we can only dream of.
Is Koda not one of the cutest characters ever? From his never ending stories to his love for adventure, Koda is everyone's favorite little brother.
5. Kenai, Sitka & Denahi
Was I the only one who had a crush on all three of them at some point?
6. The Transformation Scene
This scene gives me goosebumps every time. It's one of the most moving scenes in the film, if not one of the best.
7. Rutt & Tuke
Comedic relief in the form of two hilarious Canadian moose, who accompany Kenai and Koda throughout their journey.
The most wise, sassy leader you'll ever meet. Tanana is the connection between the spirits and the living, and sets the whole film into action once she presents Kenai with his totem.
9. Brother Bear teaches us to look at things through a different lens
As the song "Look Through My Eyes" preaches, we, along with Kenai, are taught to view things from a different perspective than our own. There are always two sides to every story.
10. Brother Bear shows us how important it is to cherish family
We see how strong of a bond the three brothers have, as well as how tightly bonded Kenai and Koda become. The bond of a family can triumph all hardships, and this film helped me see that when united, a family can overcome anything.
11. Brother Bear proves it's what's inside that counts, not the outside.
Kenai wanted to be a man more than anything, but on the inside he was not ready for such a task, until he learned to love. Once we become beautiful on the inside, we can truly blossom on the outside.
