Default Brother Bear / Brother Bear II (March 12 2012) Review



Brother Bear / Brother Bear II Blu-ray

According to that one article floating around, Brother Bear is one of the titles set for an October 2012 release to Blu-Ray:
http://www.homemediamagazine.com/blu...-release-26706

Out of the newer DACs (post Lion King), this is one of my favourites. Since a bunch of these are being fast-tracked, I wonder what bonus features there will be or if it will just be whatever was included on the DVD. Maybe the sequel will be packaged with it?

Woo Hoo! This is one of my Top Disney movies of all time.

So it's a first day buy for me. Hopefully it'll be a 2-Pack (like Fox/Hound) with the pretty damn good sequel as well.

Wow. Is Disney opening the floodgates this year or what? I do hope that they are quality releases in so much as they can be.

I still haven't seen the sequel, so, if it also gets released, I'm looking forward to watching it.

With all these releases, I'm thinking, Cinderella's and Aladdin's sequels will probably be out next year, since they are the next two Diamond Editions?

It's one of the few Disney sequels that actually is almost if not as good as the original. It's a good one.

Probably. Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't the Beauty and the Beast sequel come out the following year?

Yes it did. It came out the following November just in time for Christmas. Belle's Magical World wasn't even deemed worthy of a Blu release. I can't blame them on that. And yes indeed, Brother Bear 2 was a good one. The songs by Melissa Etheridge as well as the top notch voice cast really sold it. It didn't hurt that the animation was above par for the course.

Well, Belle's Magical World was just the remains of a cancelled Television Series. So there's really no point in giving it a Blu-ray release.

But agreed. I just watched Brother Bear I and II the other day. So I hope we get both on Blu-ray this year.

That would be cool. I would not be surprised if they did it as a 2-pack like Pocahontas and Fantasia though, as Brother Bear is sadly one of their least successful features. I just saw a pic of the upcoming Treasure Planet Blu. Oh yes, that is mine. This is quite a year for Disney. Now they just need to get some of their live action catalogs out.

I'm pretty sure it will be released (in the US) packaged with its sequel, because it seems like all Non-Diamond releases now get this treatment. It is however untrue, that Brother Bear wasn't successful. Just compare the box office with the one of Lilo & Stitch, which is considered to be one of the most successful Disney animated feature of the 00's:

Brother Bear: $250,397,798 (worldwide)
Lilo & Stitch: $245,800,000 (worldwide)

Great movie with a terrific soundtrack. No doubt in my mind it'll be a 2-pack like Pocahontas & The Rescuers. Really hoping for an $8 coupon like those titles.
