BURBANK, Calif., May 26, 2006 – It’s good to be a bear in the all-new animated movie <b><i>Brother Bear 2</b></i>, the
hilarious sequel to Walt Disney Pictures’ wildly successful Brother Bear (a Theatrical hit and a top-selling DVD
title in 2004), on Disney DVD <b>August 29</b>. An exciting film about enduring friendships and following one’s
heart, <b><i>Brother Bear 2</b></i> welcomes back the human-turned-bear Kenai and the young cub Koda, plus Rutt and
Tuke the wisecracking moose. New to the wild tundra are Rutt and Tuke’s comical paramours the
“moosettes,” plus the outrageous Sha-Woman, and Kenai’s childhood friend and love interest Nita. Music
superstar and Grammy® Award-winner Melissa Etheridge performs three sensational songs for <b><i>Brother Bear
2</b></i>, including two new songs written by Melissa Etheridge specifically for the film. Acclaimed rising musical star
Josh Kelley (top-ten hit “Amazing” and new album “Almost Honest”) performs, with Melissa Etheridge, the
moving end-credit song.
Loaded with star power, <b><i>Brother Bear 2</b></i> features new voice Patrick Dempsey (hunky star of TV’s “<i>Grey’s
Anatomy</i>”) as Kenai, with Jeremy Suarez (Jordan on TV’s “<i>The Bernie Mac Show</i>”) reprising his role as Koda.
Rick Moranis (“<i>Honey I Shrunk The Kids</i>”) and Dave Thomas (TV’s “<i>Grace Under Fire</i>”) return as the comically
mixed-up moose duo of Rutt and Tuke. For the new characters, recording artist and actress Mandy Moore (“<i>A
Walk To Remember</i>,” “<i>The Princess Diaries</i>”) voices Nita; the hilarious comedienne Wanda Sykes (“<i>Over the
Hedge</i>”) is Innoko the Sha-Woman; and Andrea Martin (“<i>My Big Fat Greek Wedding</i>”) and Catherine O’Hara
(“<i>Chicken Little</i>”) play the moosettes Anda and Kata, respectively.
Exclusive, never-before-seen bonus features are: “Trample Off, Eh?” where viewers help Rutt and Tuke win a
date with the moosettes by answering fun trivia questions about the movie; and an exclusive “Behind The
Music” featurette on Melissa Etheridge and how she was inspired to write songs for the movie. Available only
on Disney DVD for $29.99 (S.R.P.) from Walt Disney Home Entertainment on August 29, 2006.
In <b><i>Brother Bear 2</b></i> Kenai emerges from his first hibernation hungry as - well, a bear - and eager to take his little
brother Koda to Crowberry Ridge for the best spring berries. Their buddies, Rutt and Tuke, have come down
with a severe case of spring fever and are busy courting a pair of moossettes, with hilarious results. But Kenai
and Koda are immune, intent on following their plan. That is, until Kenai’s childhood pal Nita shows up with a
very human problem only Kenai can solve, and his plans change. Big time.
It seems a simple carved amulet Kenai gave Nita long ago had a greater significance than either of them
realized. Now Nita can’t marry until she and Kenai burn the amulet together at Hokani Falls, their old stomping
grounds. They set off on an arduous and tumultuous journey over icy mountains, raging rivers and unforeseen
obstacles. It’s an adventure that renews their friendship, redefines who they are, and ultimately reveals that
the Great Spirits have a surprising plan of their own.
