The review of this Movie prepared by Bjorn Bakker

Kenoia is the youngest of three brothers, who isn't very pleased with the totem he has recieved, a bear. When his oldest brother, Sitka, is killed by a bear, Kenoia goes out to kill it. When he does so, the spirits turn him into a bear. To change back to normal, he must go to where the light touches the earth. Along the way he meets a talkative cub named Koda, and two not very bright Canadian moose called Rutt and Tuke. This isn't the best of Disney films, but still provides good fun. The story isn't that interesting, but it's Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas who are the stars as the moose.
