Brother Bear 2 is a direct-to-video sequel to the animated feature Brother Bear and was released on DVD on August 29, 2006. Melissa Etheridge contributed three songs to the film. In the film, the adventures of bear brothers Kenai and Koda continue. While the first film dealt with Kenai's relationship with Koda, this one focuses more on his bond with a young human, Nita. Only five of the original characters return for the sequel including Kenai, Koda, Rutt, Tuke, and Tug. But only four of those actors came back to do their original roles which include Jeremy Suarez, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, and Michael Clake Duncan.

Jason Marsden, as heard in the first trailer, was originally announced to voice Kenai, voiced by Joaquin Phoenix in the first film, but according to Reuters, Patrick Dempsey ultimately voiced Kenai. However, the end credits still note him as one of the additional voices. [1]

This is also Rick Moranis' last role in a film before retiring from acting.

Plot

Picking up several months after the events of the first film, Kenai (Patrick Dempsey) - now a cave bear - is living happily with his foster brother Koda (Jeremy Suarez). Having just awoken from hibernation, the bears are off to Crowberry Ridge for the first berries of the season. Unfortunately, Kenai's haunted by memories of his childhood friend Nita (Mandy Moore), to whom he gave a special amulet many years ago. When he was a human child, he became friends with Nita, the daughter of the elder of a neighboring tribe. The pair's past friendship collides with the present as Kenai and Nita must undertake an excursion as bear and woman, respectively. The bears Kenai and Koda are on their way to Crowberry Ridge when they meet up with Nita, Kenai's childhood friend. Nita was given an amulet from Kenai, and wants to burn it at Hokani Falls so she can marry Atka. However, she has to do it with Kenai (the person she received it from) to send the bond back up to the spirits. At first, Kenai refuses, but finally agrees. Nita misses Kenai, but does not tell him. Instead, she asks if he misses being human, and if he ever thought of changing back. He replies that he has thought about it. Koda, who heard it all, races up a mountain and is finally found by Nita. They make it to Hokani Falls, and burn the amulet. Nita can no longer understand animals, so she says goodbye. Koda asks his mom in the spirit-land to turn Kenai back into a man so he can be happy. Koda goes to the village to retrieve Nita, and Kenai is told by Rutt and Tuke. Koda cannot go to the village because they will try to kill him. Kenai makes it there, and gets into a fight with Atka. He falls off a cliff into shallow water, where the spirits come. Koda tells Kenai that he asked the spirits to change him back into a man. Kenai tells Nina that he cannot because he does not want to leave Koda, but Nita tells him that she can. So, she turns into a bear that has same coloring as Kenai, and they get married. The film ends with Kenai and Nita getting married and Rutt and Tuke finding mates, and the spirits changing the picture of young Nita and Kenai into two bear cubs, since neither are human any more.

The spirits change the picture of young Nita and Kenai into two bear cubs, since both are no longer human.

Dialogue

Nita: They say that in all the tribes, you are the wisest shaman.
Shaman: Sha-WO-man! Okay? "Wise" and "man" don't even belong in the same sentence.

Nita: But he's a bear.
Shaman: Yeah?
Nita: You know, a bear? Grr?
Shaman: Uh, I know what a bear is. I suggest you go look in the woods.

Koda: So you're Nita. Kenai was just dreaming about you.
Kenai: I was not.
Koda: Were too. You should have heard him. 'Nita, Nita.'

Kenai: Well, you ready to get going?
Nita: But I'll never be able to cross that river.
Kenai: We can do that together too.

Nita: Do you ever miss being...human? I mean, have-have you ever thought about...changing...back?
Kenai: Yeah, I've...I've thought about it.

(Nita has just transformed into a bear.)
Nita: How do I look?
Kenai: (slightly stunned) Like a bear...except they gave you antlers.
Nita: What?
Kenai: Ha! Gotcha!

[Last lines; said at Kenai and Nita's wedding.]
Rutt: I love happy endings.
Tuke: I love happy endings, too, eh.
Anda: And happy beginnings.
[Rutt and Tuke chuckle warmly as their mates snuggle against them.]
