Did You Know?


While Disney has made many Winnie the Pooh movies, this is only their second to be produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. All of their other Winnie the Pooh movies, both those released Direct to Video/DVD and those released theatrically, were produced by DisneyToon Studios and thus are not considered to be official sequels.


Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers):
Owl says "Good luck!" to his friends as they leave to catch the Backson, suggesting that he won't help. However, when they start working, Owl is clearly seen gathering items with everyone else.


[from trailer]

Perhaps I could borrow some honey.
[Pooh's stomach growls]

Just a taste. A small lick I should think.

Christopher Robin:
Silly old bear.

User Review

Back to the childhood innocence I know and love…

Rating: 9/10

I have always been a fan of AA Milne's charming and whimsical stories
since an early age. The 1977 movie The Many Adventures of Winnie the
Pooh epitomised the childhood innocence that made the stories so
wonderful, as did the TV series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
I also liked a vast majority of the various film and TV incarnations
that were made between then and now.

Ever since hearing of this movie I knew I wanted to see it. Part of me
knew it would work, and for me when I saw it last night it did. My only
complaint of Winnie the Pooh is the length, at barely an hour(exluding
the credits and the short) the film is too short. Otherwise it is a
wonderful movie that like the 1977 movie and TV series captures
perfectly the childhood innocence that I know and love. Not only that,
it is also a welcome return to the traditional animation style as seen
with the original movie.

Speaking of the animation it is great. I always felt The Many
Adventures of Winnie the Pooh along with The Rescuers was the best
looking of the 1970s Disney movies, it had an elegant and warm feeling
to it. Winnie the Pooh maintains that elegant and warm feeling with
colourful backgrounds, cutely drawn characters and ravishing colours.
The songs and music heard in the movie aren't quite classic status
perhaps, but they are very memorable in the melodies and sweet in the

The dialogue is delightfully droll, with a lot for children and adults
to enjoy. The story is structurally thin somewhat, but it is never dull
thanks to the bright and breezy pace and the familiar yet absolutely
delightful story lines including Pooh hunting for honey, Eeyore hunting
for his tail and the search for the creature that Owl thinks has
carried off Christopher Robin. The characters are engaging and
wonderfully whimsical, Pooh is still endearing, Tigger is very funny
and Piglet is cute.

The voice acting is terrific really. These are not the original voice
actors, and most of the voice actors(excepting Jim Cummings) in the
likes of Tigger Movie, Pooh's Heffalump Movie and Piglet's Big Movie
don't return, but the new voice actors do make an effort to not sound
too different. Jim Cummings still does a wonderful job as Pooh and
Tigger, and John Cleese for me is the most thoughtful narrator of any
Winnie the Pooh film since Sebastian Cabot. I wasn't so sure though
about Tom Kenny at first as Rabbit, but he being a very talented voice
actor is also good.

Overall, delightful, charming and a lovely nostalgic trip down memory
lane, if only it wasn't so short. 9/10 Bethany Cox
