Brother Bear is a 2003 traditionally-animated feature produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 1, 2003.
Originally titled Bears, it was the third and final Disney animated feature produced primarily by the Feature Animation studio at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida; the studio was shut down in March 2004, not long after the release of this film in favor of computer animated features.
One of the two releases from Walt Disney Classics Collection is a personal favorite of mine, Koda, a talkative, pesky bear cub.
"Sitting Cub", an Open Edition release sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons was released in July, 2004. Earlier in 2004, Patrick also sculpted the Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 2,000 featuring Koda & Kenai ("Brotherly Time").
Next year, Brother Bear will be celebrating it's 5th Anniversary!
