Driven by the emotional and joyous rhythms of six new songs from Academy-Award® winner Phil Collins, BROTHER BEAR is an animated family movie. Set against the majestic splendor of the Great American Northwest, the film tells the story of Kenai whose life takes an unexpected turn when the Great Spirits transform him into a bear -- the creature he hates most.

Befriended by a bear cub named Koda, Kenai sets out to regain his human form while his brother (who doesn't realize Kenai is now a bear) pursues him on a mission of revenge and family honor.

With breathtaking animation, powerful emotion and humor, this film introduces a memorable cast of characters and paints an unforgettable tale of courage, honor and self-discovery.
