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?

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the bears are riding the mammoth, Koda is touching Kenai, but when the camera angle changes, they are at least a foot away from each other.

Other mistake: At the end of the film, as Kenai walks up to Koda after he's been transformed back into a bear, Koda leaps on him in joy. If you look closely at Kenai's hind legs, there are a few frames of animation missing. His legs go from a standing to a sitting position instantly. It's barely noticeable (no pun intended).

Factual error: During the opening scene when Kenai is running away from a herd of stampeding caribou, several of the caribou do not have antlers, even though both male and female caribou sport antlers. One of these "antlerless" caribou is even seen running near the front of the herd and is easy to see.

Rutt: Hey, don't go near this patch here, eh. Something went in here.

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.

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

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!
