This direct to Video Disney Sequel to the heartwarming original Brother Bear 2 - stays true to the spirit of the original. Rutt and Toke the 2 hilarious Moose characters are back --played by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas again (The Mackenzie Brothers from SCTV) and this time they are trying to woo 2 female Moosettes ---played by Andrea Martin and Catherine OHara --also SCTV alums. Great casting-----This video sequel actually has beautiful hand drawn animation almost as good as original which was one of the last great hand drawn animated films before the onslaught of Pixar 3-D imitators out there that have sadly killed off 2-D animation.

Usually direct to video sequels show a major drop-off in animation quality as they are farmed out to TV animation units---but Brother Bear 2 was a visual treat like its original---With great forest backgrounds for this story of love and friendship. The story was almost as strong and touching as original with a strong soundtrack as well. Great film if you were a fan of the original.
