“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred
minus one day so I never have to live without you.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
Nothing quite gets to my heart quite like Winnie the Pooh, his gentle nature and soft voice soothed me when I was little, and even today. Sweet nostalgia! Return to the Hundred Acre Wood, for the latest adventure featuring the world’s beloved bear, Winnie The Pooh! Join Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Christopher Robin, Owl, Kanga, Piglet, Eeyore, and all of the classic characters you know and love when Walt Disney Pictures releases Winnie The Pooh on DVD and Blu-Ray October 25, 2011!
I grew up with Winnie the Pooh and there’s nothing better than sharing his adventures with my own children. I recently got a copy of the all new Winnie the Pooh by Disney, and it brought back so many memories of my childhood. Just like you’d remember, this movie is just like the original pooh – the characters and mannerisms are pleasantly the same.
My three girls were attentive throughout the movie, laughing and giggling in all the right places. It’s cute to watch my twin toddler rest their hand on their own bellies and rub, when pooh makes mention of his grumbly tummy. And, seeing them smile at Eeyore’s quest for his tail. The girls were right into the movie, trying to find it for him, and quickly pointed it out when they spotted it, “there’s your tail!” they screamed at the TV. My oldest daughter remarked at all the characters, “they’re sooo cute” – and they really are. Good, wholesome, safe viewing. It’s lovable pooh and his friends, and so enjoyed by the young and old alike.
“The entire story takes place in the course of a day,” says director Don Hall. “It’s business as usual in the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh wakes up absolutely famished and he happens to have no honey. So that sets him out on his journey, which is ultimately derailed-first by a contest to find Eeyore a new tail.” Pooh later finds a note from Christopher Robin that reads: “Gone out. Busy. Back soon.” But then Owl misinterprets the note, proclaiming that the boy has been captured by a creature called a “Backson.”
Soon, the whole gang is on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from the imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a verybusy day for a bear who simply hoped to find some honey.
