Brother Bear

Continuity mistake: At the beginning and end of the film, there is a narration who the subtitles label as Sitka, but at the very beginning, we see that the narrator is actually Denahi.

Continuity mistake: After Koda frees Kenai from the rope trap, the rope disappears twice from around his (Kenai's) leg: first when he is walking towards his brother Denahi (then the rope reappears around his leg as he runs away), and disappears again when he meets Koda again inside the glacier (only to reappear again when he snags it around a rock/ice chunk and trips).

Plot hole: When the two moose run after Kenai and Koda asking for protection from the hunter, they talk about Denahi following their paw prints and Kenai looks behind him at the paw print. But if the moose followed their paw prints, wouldn't there be hoof prints as well?

Trivia: During the film's opening number, pay attention to the shot when Kenai is riding the back of the mammoth, busting through the fishing net that his brothers are holding. If you look very closely, you'll see Nemo, from Finding Nemo, right there along the flying salmon. He's only in three short frames, so it helps if you pause the DVD and go frame by frame. (00:04:45)

Trivia: The cliff where Kenai is transformed into a bear is shaped like a bear's head.

Trivia: When Kenai says "I don't care that you and Binky found the world's biggest pine cone ever" and Koda replies "First of all, it's not Binky, it's Bucky, and it wasn't a pine cone it was a pine nut" they are not saying the scripted lines. Joaquin Phoenix was supposed to say "Bucky" and "pine nut" but he got it wrong and Jeremy Suarez corrected him.

More quotes from Brother Bear

Question: At the salmon run, what does the foreign bear say?

Chosen answer: A good translation would be "I almost froze to death while I was going over the huge icy mountain pass, it was something which I only barely survived! Barely!

Question: Why did Sidka sacrifice himself to kill the bear, instead of running and stabbing the bear with his spear? By doing so he only made Kenai try to get revenge on the bear.

New this week Answer: The bear injures Sitka right before he sacrifices himself. We don't see the injury itself due to the film wanting to keep its G rating, but we do see the bear attack and most likely maul Sitka, heavily implying his injuries are fatal. This is why he's hunched over and breathing heavily when we next see him as the bear is moving towards Kenai and Denahi.

Answer: Sitka may not have wanted to harm the bear at all. He doesn't seem to be that kind of a person he sacrificed himself so that the bear could live.
