Maliŋŋa ki nutaamun

Trivia

  • "Transformation" is sung in the Inupiaq language.
  • An English version of the song performed by Phil Collins is included as part of the soundtrack of Brother Bear.[1]
  • At the end of Brother Bear, there is a reprise of "Transformation", which plays as Kenai willingly transforms back into a bear.[2]
  • "Transformation" can be heard briefly during the instrumental score "Rock Painting". It plays as Kenai glowers at a painting of a bear fighting a human.[2]
  • "Transformation" is likely sung from Sitka's perspective, as the singer speaks of Kenai's heart "turning away" from him and of the singer wanting Kenai to understand a new perspective. This is exactly what Tanana claims is Sitka's reason for transforming Kenai into a bear in Brother Bear.[2]
