Brother Bear Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In the Disney-animated adventure Brother Bear, [[Performer~P199220~Joaquin Phoenix~joaquinphoenix]] provides the voice of Kenai, a young Native American boy whose brother, Sitka (voice of D.B. Sweeney), is killed by a mother bear protecting her cubs. With revenge in mind, Kenai sets out into the woods only to find himself magically transformed into a bear himself. Seeing the world through the eyes of his prey, Kenai is forced to learn a lesson about nature and life. On a comic footnote: Brother Bear also features the voices of [[Performer~P103436~Rick Moranis~rickmoranis]] and [[Performer~P362238~Dave Thomas~davethomas]] as Rutt and Tuke, moose characters reminiscent of their beer-guzzling McKenzie brothers from SCTV and Strange Brew; because this is a family-oriented cartoon - and it would be inappropriate for the moose to quaff beer -- the two moose express a fondness for eating wheat hops instead. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
