Brother Bear (2003) Script

This is a story from long ago, when the great mammoths still roamed our lands.

It's the story of my two brothers and me.

When the three of us were young, we were taught that the woeld is full of magic.

The source of this magic is the ever-changing lights that dance across the sky.

The shaman woman of our village told us that these lights are the spirits of our ancestors, and that they have the power to make changes in our woeld.

Small things become big.

Winter turns to spring.

One thing always changes into another.

But the greatest change I ever saw was that of my brother, a boy who desperately wanted to be a man.

Get down. What?

Get down! Get down!

Kenai.


Never try to milk a caribou.

No. No, don't. No. Come on, don't. No.

Hey. Will you two knock it off?

That's all right. After today, he won't treat me like that.

Right, the big manhood ceremony.

Doesn't matter what the spirits say, you'll always be our baby brother.

Well, wait till I get my totem. Baby brother.

Hey, I said knock it off.

The quicker we get these fish, the faster we get to your ceremony.

Let's all just try and get along for a few hours. Okay, Denahi?

Whatever you say. Okay, Ken...

So, what are we waiting for?

When the Earth was young and the air was sweet And the mountains kissed the sky In the great beyond With its many paths Man and nature lived side by side In this wilderness of danger and beauty Lived three brothers bonded by love Their hearts full of joy They ask now for guidance Reaching out to the skies up above Great spirits of all who lived before Take our hands and lead us Fill our hearts and souls with all you know Show us that in your eyes We are all the same Brothers to each other in this world we remain Truly brothers all the same Give us wisdom to pass to each other And give us strength so we understand

That the things we do The choices we make Give direction to all life's plans To look and wonder at all we've been given In a woeld that's not always as it seems Every corner we turn Only leads to another A journey ends but another begins Great spirits of all who lived before Take our hands and lead us Fill our hearts and souls with all you know Show us that in your eyes We are all the same Brothers to each other in this world we remain Truly brothers all the same Kenai's back. Kenai.

Kenai, are you excited about getting your spirit rock today?

It's not a rock. It'll be my totem.

I'll probably get a sabre-tooth tiger for bravery, or strength, or greatness.

Something that fits me. A mammoth for your fat head?

Make sure you get that basket tied up. Don't worry.

No stupid bear is gonna get near this fish.

Just tie it up.

She's back. Tanana's back. Come on.

Come on, Kenai, let's go. Come on.

Tanana's got your rock. Come on.

Great spirits of all who lived before Take our hands and lead us Fill our hearts and souls with all you know Show us that in your eyes We are all the same Brothers to each other in this world we remain Truly brothers all the same Brothers all the same Nana.

Hey, Nana. Well, hello there, sweetheart.

What a big girl.

When each of us comes of age, the great spirits reveal to us a totem that helps guide us through our lives.

Some of us use courage to guide us.

Others patience.

And some of us beauty.

Kenai.

You nervous? Excited.

You should be. It's a good one.

Kenai, I have been to the mountain where the lights touch the earth, and the great spirits have revealed to me your totem.

To become a man, your actions must be guided by one thing.

Your totem is...

Love.

What? Yes, love.

The bear of love?

A love that connects and unites all living things.

Who wants to trade? There is no trading.

Oh, Kenai, love is the most precious of totems.

It reveals itself in unexpected ways.

Let love guide your actions, then one day you'll be a man, and we'll place your mark next to those of our ancestors.


There he is.

Come here, lover boy.

Leave me alone. Kenai, wait.

I'm sorry. What?

Your totem, I think it's really great.

You do? Yeah. And I made you something.

Really?

Now when you skip around loving everybody, you'll smell so sweet.

Well, isn't this nice?

Instead of fighting, you're giving each other flowers.

Yeah, isn't it lovely? He's so in touch with his totem already.

Hey, dog breath, go take care of the fish.

Sure. Kenai loves me, he loves me not.

Kenai loves me, he loves me not. Kenai loves me, he loves...

Kenai. Someday I'm gonna just...

He's just such a... Hey, bonehead.

Just because his totem is wisdom doesn't mean he's wise.

I mean, look at him. Kenai loves me, he loves me not.

Hi, Denahi. Hi.

Let go!

Yeah, the spirits messed up on both of our totems.

I felt the same way when Tanana gave me mine.

Get out of here. No, really.

I said, "The eagle of guidance? What does that mean?"

But now that I'm older, I know it's about being a leader and keeping an eye on you two.

I just want to get my handprint on that wall.

Just be patient, Kenai. When you live by your totem, you will.

Really? Guarantee it.

But come on, the bear of love?

I mean, a bear doesn't love anyone.

They don't think. They don't feel. I mean, they're...

They're thieves. You didn't tie it up, did you?

You should get the totem of pinheads.

Knock it off.

We'll just make another basket. We?

Oh, no. It took me two weeks to make that basket.

Get lover boy to do it. He's the one always messing things up.

Typical Kenai. All right, I'll go get your basket.

Kenai, wait. Kenai!

What?


Kenai!

Where'd he go? If we're lucky, far away.

Kenai!

Kenai. Sitka, no, you gotta get out of here.

What? The bear. Behind you.

Hey, bear, come on. Over here.

Come on, bear, come this way.

Denahi!

Hold on. Pull.


Sitka. Sitka!


Sitka.

Come on!

Sitka! Sitka!

Sitka. Sitka!

Sitka? Sitka, where are you?

Kenai.

No.

Sitka!

Denahi, let's find him!

Sitka.

Sitka, where are you? Sitka!


You ready? For what?

For going after the bear.

I know what you're feeling, but killing that bear is wrong.

Wrong? Our brother is dead and it's because of that monster.

I don't blame the bear, Kenai.

I see. Killing the bear won't make you a man.

Now you're trying to be wise.

I'm trying to follow my totem. Why can't you?

You really think love has anything to do with being a man?

A man wouldn't just sit here and do nothing.

Kenai. Don't upset the spirits.

Spirits. Thanks for your wisdom.


I've got to stop him.

You left too soon, Sitka.

Your brothers need your guidance.


Kenai.


What?


Sitka.


No.


I don't blame the bear, Kenai.

A man wouldn'tjust sit here and do nothing.


So, Kenai, you've decided to join the living.

That's quite a bump you've got.

That must have been one heck of a ride down the rapids.

Tanana?

Nana, you won't believe this.

I was at the top of this rock, and all of a sudden...

Kenai, honey.

I don't speak bear.

No.

No, no! No!

All right! All right! All right! Would you settle down? Settle!

Kenai! Kenai...

Kenai. Kenai. This isn't going to work.

Kenai, listen to me. Sitka did this.

Strange. Spirits don't usually make these kind of changes.

Oh, my, my, my, my.

Sitka must have something really big planned for you. Yep, yep.

You are going to get a whole new perspective on things.

Do you see in black and white or colour?

Hey. Listen to me. You got yourself into this mess.

If you want to change, take it up with your brother's spirit.

You'll find him on the mountain where the lights touch the earth.

He'll help you make up for what you've done wrong.

But I didn't do anything wrong.

Tanana? Tanana!

Wait. I didn't do anything wrong.

I don't even know how to get there. What happened to them?

I don't know. They were here. Now they're gone.

Yeah, that's pretty weird.

So you're telling me you didn't eat them and you have no idea where they are?

Hey, hey, you. You just talked.

Just back away, real slow-like.

How did you do that? I knew you had them.

Are we there yet?

Don't make me turn this formation around.

Hey. Wait. Come back. I'm trying to find where the lights...

What's he getting worked up about? Maybe the goose pooped on him?

He's looking over here. Let's beat it. This way.

No, this way. Thank you very much.

Just stay still and... Hey, you two!

Head down.

I think he's seen us. Now what?

Act like we're not here. We're not here.

What are you doing? You said to...

Don't say anything. Okay.

I said, "Don't say anything. " Excuse me.

Don't eat us. You won't like us, eh? We're gamey.

Yeah. Eat hoof-for-brains over there.

Pine-cone breath. Crusty tail.

Twig legs. Big nose.

Sorry. You went too far that time.

Okay, I'm sorry. Guys.

Yours is bigger than mine. I'm not eating anybody.

That's mighty decent of you, eh. My name's Rutt.

This is my brother Tuke. How's it going, Bear?

Don't call me that. Sorry...

Mr Bear? I mean, I'm not a bear. I hate bears.

Well, gee, you're one big beaver. No kidding, eh?

Do either of you know where the lights touch the earth?

No. No. Sorry, bear... Beaver.

I'm not a beaver, I'm a bear... No, I mean, I'm not a bear.

I'm a man. Excuse me.

I was transformed into a bear.

Magically. I was lifted into the sky by my brother.

Crazy. Gesundheit.

No. Fruitcake.

Are you okay? No. That bear. Over there.

He's crazy. I am not crazy.

Whoever said you were? We understand.

You do? Yeah, yeah.

You see, we're not moose either.

We're not? No.

We're like squirrels. Yeah.

Yeah. Beauty, eh?

Well, he's actually the squirrel. I'm more of a purebred wolverine.

Look at these cuspids.

Give him a little room. Why am I talking to moose?

No, we're squirrels, eh. Wolverine.

I'll find it myself.

I wouldn't go that way. Why not, eh?

Well, there was a reason.

You brought it up. I'm trying to...

So, you think of it yet? Well, no, but it's driving me nuts.

Hey. Is the coast clear?

What? Are there any hunters around?

No. Good!

You didn't see the trap?

I saw it from a mile away. You must be pretty embarrassed.

Don't worry.

I won't tell anyone.

What? You need to get down. Let me help.

Oh, wait.

Hold still. Just... Stop that.

If you just...

Stop it! It's no use.

The only way to get down is to chew your own foot off.

I don't need some stupid bear's help. I just need the stick.

Okay, here. No, I'll do it myself.

Put it back. No, where you found it.

To the left. By the little rock.

Here? Yes.

Okay.

Boy, that tree is strong, huh?

You know, when I was little, I was really into climbing trees.

All kinds of trees.

I climbed pine trees, oaks, cedars, maples, birch trees, willow trees...

My eyes were watering and my tongue was swollen.

From that moment on, I was more careful about what I lick.

See? It's all about using your head.

That was funny. Do it again.

Don't you have someplace to go? Yeah, the salmon run.

How about this? I get you down, then we go together.

Deal? Yeah, okay, fine.

If you can magically get me down, I'll go with you to this...

Salmon run. Whatever. But if you can't...

You turn around, walk away, and never come back, ever.

You swear? Yeah.

Pinkie swear? Yeah, sure, fine, pinkie swear.

But this is a human trap and you're just a dumb little bear.

There's no way you're going to be able...

Okay, so I'm thinking we travel by day and sleep by night.

My bedtime is an hour after sunset...

Run!

Yeah, good riddance.

Denahi.

Denahi, you found me.

You wouldn't believe what a nightmare this has been.

Denahi? It's me. Kenai.


Is he gone?

I think he was going...

Hello. I can't breathe.

Why is he chasing me? That's what they do.

But it's not like him. Lucky for him, he didn't find us

'cause when I get in a fight, I go all crazy and I'm a raging ball of brown fur.

I mean, I don't want to brag or nothing, but I got some moves.

Really? Yep. This first one, well...

It's just a little thing I like to call "The Slasher. "

And this one I like to call "Flying Fury of Death. "

He's coming back. Where?

Typical.

Yeah, well, the next time we run into that hunter...

There is no "we. " I'm not taking you to any salmon run.

What? But you pinkie swore.

Yeah, well, things change.

See you, kid.

Wait...

The truth is, I got separated from my mom.

And now, with this hunter around...

Kid, I got my own problems. Come on. Please.

Can't we just go together? There's a lot of bears and a ton of fish, and every night we watch the lights touch the mountain. Last year...

Wait, wait. What did you say? Lots of bears and fish.

No. You know where the lights touch the earth?

Yeah! The top of the mountain right by the salmon run.

You're kidding me. No, no, they're practically next door.

Come on, I'll show you. It'll be great.

I promise to help you escape from every trap you walk into.

I'm not going to walk into any more...

Traps. Come on. What do you say?

Sure you can take me to where the lights touch the earth?

Yeah, no problem.

If you slow me down... I won't, I promise.

All right, we leave first thing tomorrow.

And keep all that cuddly bear stuff to a minimum, okay, kid?

My name's not "kid. " It's Koda.

What's your name?

Good day. How's it going, eh?

Beauty. So we got a lot to get done today. You want to get started?

Yeah. Just give me one sec, eh? Okay.

Just help me crack this. All right.

You ready now? Almost.

Just want to do "dog facing forward. "

Come on. Good. Okay.

And go.

This a nice patch here.

Don't go near this patch here. Something went here.


Skinny. Fat. Skinny. Fat.

Hey, I've got a mountain to get to. Come on, kid.

I told you before. My name's Koda.

Say it with me. Ko... Da.

Sure your mom didn't ditch you, Ko-duh?

Rutt. Go away, I'm eating twigs.

Rutt. You're breaking my concentration.

We should start running, like now!

I can't. I'm still digesting. I'll get cramps.

He's after us! Come on, little brother.

Cramp!

If you really want to know how me and my mom got separated...

I was saving this story for the salmon run, but I'll tell you.

It was probably the fifth or sixth most coldest day in my entire life.

Sounds good. You should save it. You think so?

Yeah. For your friends.

Well, I have this other story. Tell you what.

How about no talking? Okay.

Then I'll sing. No, no, no.

Tell everybody I'm on my way Will you stop it?

New friends and new places to see Come on, quit it.

Koda, stop singing.

Yes, I'm on my way And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be Tell everybody I'm on my way And I'm loving every step I take With the sun beating down Yes, I'm on my way And I can't keep this smile off my face

'Cause there's nothing like seeing each other again No matter what the distance between And the stories that we tell will make you smile Oh, it really lifts my heart So tell them all I'm on my way New friends and new places to see And to sleep under the stars Who could ask for more?

With the moon keeping watch over me Not the snow, not the rain can change my mind The sun will come out, wait and see And the feeling of the wind in your face Can lift your heart, whoa There's nowhere I would rather be

'Cause I'm on my way now

Well and true

I'm on my way now Hey, hold on, eh?

Wait up.

How's it going, bear boy? And smallish bear.

I didn't know you had a little brother. He's cute.

Actually, he's... There was this hunter following us.

We was thinking if we could maybe just hang out with you guys.

Just hang out. Yeah, it'd be fun.

If the hunter was going to catch up... Then you'd eat him.

That's what we was thinking. We lost the hunter at the glacier.

You don't think he'll follow those?

They are quite nice. I've got an idea.

Okay, this is really weird.

I'm driving. When can I have a turn?

It's not as easy as it looks. Just watch what I do.

Let's get a back seat or something. I look like you hunted me.

Tell everybody I'm on my way Hey, come on.

And I just can't wait to be there Blue skies ahead Yes, I'm on my way Nothing but good times to share So tell everybody I'm on my way And I just can't wait to be home With the sun beating down Yes, I'm on my way With nothing but good times to show I'm on my way Yes, I'm on my way Beauty, eh?

Okay, here's how I remember it. The snow is white, it's all right.

Yellow or green, it's just not clean.

I learned that one the hard way.

That reminds me. Last year at the salmon run my friend Bucky dared me.

But I'd heard of a cub who stuck his tongue to an iceberg.

Then he started to float away.

To save him they had to rip off his tongue, so now he hath to talk like thith all the time and...

Do you ever stop talking?

Look. The night rainbow.

You can see the spirits from here. You know about the great spirits?

Yeah, my grandma's up there, and my granddad.

Mom says the spirits make all the magical changes in the world.

Like how the leaves change colour, or the moon changes shapes, or tadpoles change into frogs. Yeah, I get it.

You know, for a change, maybe they could just leave things alone.

What do you mean? My brother's a spirit.

If it wasn't for him, I...

I wouldn't be here.

You have a brother up there?

What happened to him? He was killed by a...

By a monster.

What's your brother's name?

Sitka.

Thanks, Sitka. If it weren't for you, I would have never met Kenai.

I always wanted a brother.

So, you want to play "I spy"?

All right. I'll go first. Okay.

I spy something green.

Tree?

My turn? Yeah.

Okay, I spy something tall.

Tree. Okay.

I spy something with bark.

Tree?

Okay, I spy something...

A vertical log. Tree.

Okay, I spy something... Tree.

My turn. Tree.

No, I... It counts.

I didn't even spy anything. It counts.

Okay. Tree.

Let's play something else.

Koda. Come on.

Koda, wake up. Two more months, Mom.

So, where are we?

Well, which way?

I think it's that way. You think, or you know?

That way?

Why wasn't I turned into a homing pigeon?

Come on. Hey, riding mammoths was your idea.

Thanks for the ride, guys. See you.

Lucky for you, I've been lost worse than this.

Last summer, I was with Bucky... Enough with the stories.

I don't care about the time you and Binky found the world's biggest pine cone ever.

First of all, his name's Bucky, not Binky.

Second, it wasn't a pine cone, it was a pine nut.

And it was huge. Even bigger than your fat head.

Our big guardian bear is leaving, eh?

Yeah. We'd better follow him. Come on.

Can you swing your leg... I can't get off.

Me, neither. Okay, you guys...

I guess we'll just catch up with those guys later, eh?

Good trip, eh? Beauty.

You know, I was thinking now might be a good time for me to drive.

Just relax and enjoy the ride.

Yeah. Okay.

I'm sorry we're lost, okay?

Even though it's your fault. My fault?

That's it.

Just remember, if it weren't for me, you'd be hanging upside down.

Better than being stuck nowhere with you and your blabbering mouth.

"I'm lost. I can't find my mommy. Will you take me to the salmon run?"

Why don't you just grow up? Fine. I'll go on my own then.

Fine. Go ahead. Fine.

Fine. Fine.

Koda?


Those monsters are really scary.

Especially with those sticks.

Come on, let's go.

So, you recognise anything yet?

Or maybe you can't see past my fat head.

So, do you really think I have a fat head?

Well, if you hunched your shoulders a little it wouldn't seem so big.

You mean like this?

Or like this?

How about this?

Oh, my, that was good.

Maybe they can give us directions.

That clears up the sinuses. Oh, it does.

Okay, okay, hit me again. I think she's looking.

Hello, sweetie. Yes, she's checking me out, all right.

Hey, baby. No, come on, you nitwit.

Are you out of your head? She's looking at me.

Like she's looking at your ugly mug? Come on.

Excuse me, miss. It's go-time, baby.

You want to go? Bring it on.

Horns up. Hold on.

Excuse me. What do you want?

What is that? Just a minute, bear.

Hey, shut up.

No, you shut up.

Hey, will you shut up?

Just shut up.

Their horns are screwed on too tight.

Wait a second.

I know this place. You do?

Yeah. The salmon run's not far.

We just have to go through here.

What?

Hey, you sure you know where you're going?

Yeah, yeah, follow me.

Koda?

Where are you?

Don't do that. Scared you, didn't I?

There's scared, and then there's surprised.

And you were both.

Nice try. You got a little spit right there.

Kenai! You're not getting me this time.

No, look out.

No.

Come on.

Kenai.

Kenai, where are you?

Left. Left. No, the other left.

Kenai!


No!

What are you doing? We got to get out of here.


Why do they hate us, Kenai?

We're bears. So?

So, you know how they are. They're killers.

Wait a minute, who's the killers?

Bears. What? Which bears?

I'm not like that, and you're not like that.

Well, obviously not all bears. I mean, you're okay.

Most bears will look for any excuse to attack a human.

But, Kenai, he attacked us.

You're just a cub. When you're older, you'll understand.

Fish! Fish! Fish!

We made it. We're here.

Come on! What? Koda.

Fish! Fish! Fish! Hey. Get away from me.

Get away from me. Go on.


Hey, you're stirring up the water, dude.

Yeah, try not to scare off the fish there, buddy.

Tug.

Hey, Koda. Come here.

Look at you.

Have you seen my mom yet? No, as a matter of fact I haven't.

Me and my friend Kenai beat her. He's with you?

Hi.

I've never seen you at the run before.

Where are you from? Well, I...

There's the mountain, just like I promised.

The lights touch the top every night.

Gonna be harder getting up there than riding those mammoths.

Mammoths? Are you kidding?

That's weird. Yeah.

He does weird stuff. Like the way he drinks water with a leaf.

He never sharpens his claws on a tree. He's never hibernated before...

Koda. Koda.

Can I talk to you for a second? Excuse us.

He's kind of jumpy, isn't he?

Okay. Okay.

Koda, I...

I got to get going. Well, when you come back...

I won't be coming back.

What? Why not?

Because... Well, it's hard to...

You're leaving? No.

Well, I mean, yes.

Well, it's just that I...

I don't belong here. Don't belong?

Every bear belongs here. Come on, buddy.

Everyone's invited Let's have some fun!

All right, settle down, everyone. Settle down. Hey.

Don't throw your fish bones there. Somebody could choke on that.

Look, okay, I'll go first.

Okay, let's see. The most interesting thing that happened to me this year.

I know, I know, I know! Listen to this.

It was when I knocked down that tree that was blocking the view from my cave.

Now I got a family of chipmunks staying in my place.

Yeah.

All right, everybody, let me see some paws in the air.

Who's gonna be next? Come on. Tug. I got one.

Watch me. Hey, gotcha.

This year I lost my dear husband Edgar.

Quit telling everyone I'm dead!

Sometimes I can still hear his voice.

I'm getting the next one.

Oh, yeah.

This is it. I got it. I got... I guess it's our turn.

This is the year I met the most gorgeous...

No, you're gorgeous.

You're gorgeous-er. Get a cave.

If only Edgar was alive...

I told you, woman, I'm right here!

I love you, buttercup. This has got to be it.

Here you go, Koda. You gotta tell it, Kenai.

What? Yes. You caught it, you tell it.

Didn't you play when you were a cub?

Come on, Keno.

Okay, all right already. All right.

You want to know what I did this year? Yes.

I went on the longest, hardest, most exhausting journey I've ever been on with the biggest pain in the neck I've ever met.

What do you expect from a little brother?

Okay, buddy, your turn.

Let's hear it, Koda. Okay, okay, here we go.

This year I watched my mom in a life-and-death struggle battling the most fiercest creature ever.

Who's next? What?

Wait a minute. I think we all want to hear the rest of that one, Koda.

I thought you might say that. Let's see.

It was probably the fifth or sixth most coldest day in my entire life.

Me and Mom were eating fish, having a great time.

All of a sudden she pushes me into the bushes and tells me to be real quiet.

She says, "I smell something. " So I started sniffing.

There's something in the woods running towards us, getting closer and closer.

And then, out of the trees, jumps a hunter.

And now there's nowhere for Mom to go.

The monster has her backed up against this giant glacier.

The monster attacks, but Mom's too quick for him.

And before he can do it again, she stands up real big and yells, "Go away. "

Kenai.

Mom smells more of them.

There's a whole pack coming right at us.

Sitka, no. The bear. Behind you.

She runs to stop them before they get to me.

They're all around her, poking her with sticks.

- Sitka. The whole thing broke and fell off.

There was ice everywhere.

She couldn't hold her breath any longer, and pow.

She bursts out of the water. I've never been so scared in my life.

- I'm going after the bear. Koda?

- Sitka wouldn't want it. Sitka's not here because of that monster.

Fell off a glacier? I've never seen anything like that.

Can you imagine?

Kenai. What's the matter, Kenai?

What happened next? Was she okay?

Hey, Kenai, what's wrong? Where you going?

She got out of the water okay. That's how we got separated.

Right after that I met Kenai.

Kenai?


Scared you again, huh?

Yeah. Where have you been?

You look horrible. Koda...

My mom says when you eat too much fish, just lie down.

There's something I...

You know that story you told me last night?

Yeah. Well, I have a story to tell you.

Really? What's it about?

Well, it's kind of about a man, and kind of about a bear.

But mostly it's about a monster.

A monster who did something so bad...

Everywhere I turn I hurt someone But there's nothing I can say to change the things I've done I'd do anything within my power I'd give everything I've got But the path I seek is hidden from me now Koda, I did something very wrong.

Brother bear, I let you down I don't like this story.

You trusted me, believed in me and I let you down Your mother's not coming.

Of all the things I hid from you I cannot hide the shame And I pray someone No. No!

Something will come to take away the pain There's no way out Of this dark place No, no future

I know I can't be free

But I can't see another way And I can't face another day

Koda? Koda?

Koda!

Koda, I wish I could...

If there was just some way...

I'd give anything if...

If I could just...

I'm sorry, Koda.

I'm so sorry.


I'm sorry, Kenai.

I don't know what I'm doing any more.

I need help.

Sitka.

Look, I am sorry.

If I was driving this never would have happened.

You never let me do nothing. Trample off. I said sorry. Let it go.

I can't believe you totalled a mammoth.

That mountain came out of nowhere. I cannot accept your apology.

It was in my blind spot... Look. It's that little cub.

Something's bugging him. What's wrong, smallish bear?

Nothing. I'm fine.

Good. Where were we? Oh, yeah. You're a big, selfish, reckless hoofer.

What? I'm fed up with it.

From now on, he's my new brother. You can't do that.

Sorry, you've been replaced with my dear brother...

What's your name again?

I don't want any more brothers.

See? He's had enough of you, too. I promise I'll change.

Trample off. You won't. Being a brother means nothing to you.

Of course it does. Like what?

What about when your hooves froze in the pond?

Who sat with you all winter, eh? You did.

Who showed you where the good grazing is?

The really tender stuff all covered in dew.

Now, why do you think I did that, eh?

Because I...

Because I love... dew.

Excuse me? I don't believe I heard what you said.

I said, "I love dew. "

I love dew, too.

Hey, I can change.

Go away. Come on, I can change.

Go away, don't touch me. I can change.

Hey. No.

Not there, that's the spot.

Like, we'll see you later, smallish bear.

Yeah, good day. You know what this calls for?

A pile of delicious barley and amber weed on a cool bed of malted hops.

I like it.

Sitka! Sitka, are you there?

Sitka?

Please. Please, Sitka.

I don't know what else to do.

Sitka.

Denahi.

Sitka, hurry, change me back.

Where are you, Sitka?


Denahi.

Denahi, please.

Koda.

No!

Leave him alone.

Koda!


Kenai?

Sitka?


Koda, don't be afraid. It's me.


He needs me.

You know, he did look better as a bear.

But, Denahi...

It's all right, Kenai.

No matter what you choose, you'll always be my little brother.

Did I say little?


Kenai.


My brother Kenai went on to live with Koda and the other bears.

He taught me that love is very powerful.

And I passed on the wisdom of his story to our people.

The story of a boy who became a man by becoming a bear.

Great spirits of all who lived before Take our hands and lead us Fill our hearts and souls with all you know Show us that in your eyes We are all the same Brothers to each other in this world we remain Truly brothers all the same Brothers all the same

So, like, what are you doing there, smallish bear?

I'm practising my moves. Want to see one?

Sure. This ought to be good?

Listen to me. I was a man that was changed into a bear.

No beaver. Man into bear. That's it.

Yeah, so, before that you was probably like a goat?

What about a water buffalo? No, he's a rabbit.

Look at his ears and furry feet. Watch out for the rabbit, eh.

No way, eh.

Okay, now, everyone, take a big inhale.

And then on...

On the exhale, shift into salutation to the sun.

No, you shut up.

How you doing over there, Koda? Pretty good.
