The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
The 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, as “Winnie the Pooh,” the delightful all-new animated feature film comes home to Blu-ray Combo Pack for the very first time, as well as DVD and Movie Download on October 25, 2011. Reuniting audiences with Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore.
Inspired by the beloved stories from A.A. Milne's books and crafted in Disney's classic style, “Winnie the Pooh,” is the most critically-acclaimed animated film of 2011*. It is narrated by the voice of John Cleese and features the vocal talents of legendary voice actor Jim Cummings (over 350 voices including Gnomeo & Juliet) and a host of other distinctive actors including Craig Ferguson (TV's 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'), Tom Kenny (TV's 'SpongeBob SquarePants'), Bud Luckey (Toy Story 3) and musical performances by Zooey Deschanel (indie folk band “She & Him”).
Compared to other Disney animated titles Winnie is aimed at very young kids and doesn't really contain any humor for adults but it's sure great to see him and the whole gang back again. The film's look and story stays true to the original film. The animation has that same look and feel and the characters are just like we remembered them. The voice cast did a remarkable job bringing these endearing characters to life. Kids will love the film and will want to watch it over and over again it and parents will be taken back to when they were kids. Winnie the Pooh is a great film that breathes new life for a new generation of fans. If you have kids this is a must own, innocent entertainment for children is hard to find nowadays so when something like this comes along it's always a joy to see.
“Winnie the Pooh” is a honey of an in-home release containing hours of immersive bonus features, including exclusive animated shorts “The Ballad of Nessie” and “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon;” a sing-along viewing option; an informative behind-the-scenes featurette for the whole family and deleted scenes with director commentary – all available on Blu-ray Combo Pack.
