Director:Stephen J. Anderson, Don Hall

Cast:Jim Cummings, Craig Ferguson, John Cleese

Running Time:69 Minutes


Disney has successfully brought back an old classic with Winnie the Pooh. The silly old bear and
his friends once again share their adventures in a delightful and simplistic
way that appeals to people of all ages.

Owl, Rabbit, Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo and Christopher Robin embark on several
narratives involving a contest to find Eeyore's missing tail and a monster
called a "Backson."  Up to their
familiar antics, the group finds themselves working together all in the name of

remember the glory days of The Many
Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, the first film that follows A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh books much more closely.
This 2011 version tells a story that is fresh, but lacking in depth. The
musical bits are sweet, even if they aren't as rich. The voices are also
noticeably different, so in comparison I'd recommend seeing the first film, but
acknowledge that Winnie the Pooh certainly
has merits all its own.

than once I laughed at the situations the characters got themselves into, and
couldn't help but smile throughout this heartwarming movie. You're safe taking
any child to see this film which guarantees they'll learn a nice message. The
film is also appropriately condensed to a mere 69 minutes, which means you
won't be overloaded with any sugary sweet stories.

also a short animated film that precedes
Winnie the Pooh called The Ballad of
Nessie that was absolutely adorable. It's about Nessie, the Loch Ness
monster, and how she came to live in the lake she inhabits now. The message in
this short, too, is rather touching and a great segue into the longer feature

you've been missing the traditional 2D animated films with a simple story, Winnie the Pooh brings back that classic
feel. Paired with awesome short, genuine characters, and a satisfying runtime
this film is sure to appeal to the
young at heart.
