Walt Disney Pictures had announced that they will release the 2-Movie Collection BD/DVD Combo Pack of Brother Bear and Brother Bear 2 on March 12, 2013. This is the same date that Disney had previously announced for the Blu-ray debuts of Mulan and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Brother Bear was released in October 2003 and grossed over $85 million at the box office. It was directed by Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker and features the voice talents of Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Suarez, Michael Clarke Duncan, Dave Thomas, and Rick Moranis. Brother Bear 2 was released direct to video three years later, and was directed by Ben Gluck. Patrick Dempsey replaced Phoenix as Kenai, and was joined by Mandy Moore, Catherine O’Hara, and Wanda Sykes. Suarez, Duncan, Thomas and Moranis all returned for the sequel.
Brother Bear tells the tale of Kenai (Phoenix), an impulsive Inuit boy who, after being magically transformed into a bear, accompanies his little brother bear, Koda (Suarez), on a journey to see the Northern Lights. In Brother Bear 2, Kenai (Dempsey) reunites with a childhood friend named Nita (Moore) and has to choose between his new life and his old.
Both 1080p/AVC-encoded high definition films will be housed on a single BD-50 disc (each with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track), and two standard DVDs — one for each movie — will round out the 3-disc set. The Combo Pack will include several special features including: Rut00t & Tuke’s audio commentary; The Making of Brother Bear featurette; Deleted Scenes; a Deleted Song; Bear Legends; Sing-Along Songs; a Music Video; and a Behind the Music of Brother Bear 2 featurette.
Here is the theatrical trailer for Brother Bear.
