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.
Denahi to his tribe[src]

"Main Title" is a score composed by Mark Mancina and Phil Collins for Brother Bear. It was unofficially released in 2003 as part of the film's complete score.


In the soundtracks

Mark Mancina and Phil Collins composed the score of the 2003 film Brother Bear as well as its soundtrack and unofficial complete score. "Main Title" was written to represent the opening of the film, particularly Denahi's story to his tribe.[1]

Parts of "Main Title" were used in the score "Three Brothers", which was released as part of the film's soundtrack.[2][3]

In the film

An aged Denahi recounts his life story to his tribe, during which "Main Title" is heard

"Main Title" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the opening sequence, in which an aged Denahi tells his life story to his tribe. It picks up at the onset of the film and plays over the title card. It carries through Denahi's narration and Tanana's journey up the Mountain Where the Lights Touch the Earth. The piece becomes more choral in nature to represent the Great Spirits, who receive a rock from Tanana and begin to form Kenai's totem with magic. The score ends as the scene transitions to Kenai's flight from a herd of caribou.
