When a young Inuit hunter needlessly kills a bear, he is magically changed into a bear himself as punishment with a talkative cub being his only guide to changing back.
Denahi also helps push Kenai into his aforementioned Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! situation by denying his own part in causing Sitka's death and solely blaming Kenai ("I don't blame the bear, Kenai!"). Denahi really regrets this once he thinks that Kenai is dead.
Denahi as an Old Man:
This is a story from long ago, when the great mammoths still roamed our lands. It's the story of my two brothers and me. When the three of us were young, we were taught that the world is full of magic. The source of this magic is the ever-changing ...
When Rutt claims Koda as his new brother, he is sitting right next to him. But after Rutt and Tuke have their brotherly moment Koda is positioned farther away from both moose.
Asides from the Walt Disney Pictures opening logo animation, there are no opening credits after the title is shown.
The movie changes aspect ratio about a quarter of the way into the film from 1.75:1 to 2.35:1, after Kenai is transformed into a bear. The DVD release in March 2004 features the original widescreen version of the film (which retains the aspect ratio change) and a so-called "family-friendly" version which keeps an 1.66:1 aspect ratio for the entire film.
