BURBANK, Calif., July 21, 2006 – It’s good to be a bear in the all-new animated movie Brother Bear 2, 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 August 29. An exciting film about enduring friendships and following one’s heart, Brother Bear 2 welcomes back the humanturned-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 Brother Bear 2, including two new songs written by Melissa Etheridge specifically for the film. Acclaimed rising musical star Josh Kelley (topten hit “Amazing,” new album “Almost Honest”) performs, with Melissa Etheridge, the moving end-credit song. Available only on Disney DVD for U.S.$29.99/Canada $36.99 (SRP) from Walt Disney Home Entertainment on August 29, 2006.

Loaded with star power, Brother Bear 2 features new voice Patrick Dempsey (hunky star of TV’s “Grey’s Anatomy”) as Kenai, with Jeremy Suarez (Jordan on TV’s “The Bernie Mac Show”) reprising his role as Koda. Rick Moranis (“Honey Shrunk The Kids”) and Dave Thomas (TV’s “Grace Under Fire”) return as the comically mixed-up moose duo of Rutt and Tuke. For the new characters, recording artist and actress Mandy Moore (“A Walk To Remember,” “The Princess Diaries”) voices Nita; the hilarious comedienne Wanda Sykes (“Over the Hedge”) is Innoko the Sha-Woman; and Andrea Martin (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) and Catherine O’Hara (“Chicken Little”) 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. In Brother Bear 2 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.
