Walt Disney Studios proudly invites families and audiences of all ages to return to the Hundred Acre Wood with some of the world’s most beloved characters “Winnie the Pooh”. Reuniting audiences with Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore (who has lost his tail),
It is interesting how Disney always manages to make an animated film for children that will also entertain the parent accompanying the child. The film takes you back to that moment in life when we did not hesitate to suspend disbelief. The place where our imaginations roamed freely and innocent.
I forgot how much fun a musical can be, especially with a character as lovable as Pooh. Sure you have great characters like Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, and Piglet however Pooh outshines them all.
As mentioned earlier Eeyore lost his tail and its up to Pooh and the gang to help find the Tail. They even come up with a contest to see who ever gets Eeyore a new Tail will win a Jar of Hunny(Honey). It’s hilarious to see Pooh come so close to the Hunny yet so far. In fact Pooh’s stomach growling is a character of his own. When they try to get help from Christopher Robin, Pooh comes across a note stating that Christopher will be “back soon”. Not knowing how to read, Pooh take the note to Owl who misinterprets the note and scares the group by saying that Christopher was kidnapped by a monster named “Back Soon” (pronounce bak-sun) opening up an adventure with in an adventure. The perferct formula to entertain children.
It sure does make a difference to watch in Blu-Ray! It looks as if though the story book in the film has come to life. The colors are so crisp and clear. The letters also are quite outstanding serving as part of the story line and scenery.
Please do not deprive your children from watching this wonderful Disney Animated Film.
