Blu-ray Review - Winnie the Pooh
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with "Winnie the Pooh," the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney's feature animation studios in more than 35 years. With the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical "bear of very little brain" and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo-and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail.
"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 very busy day for a bear who simply hoped to find some honey.
My Take on the Blu-ray
What I have always loved about Winnie the Pooh is that the movies and books are so kid friendly. You know that kids will learn so much about friendship as well as themselves by watching or reading the stories, and this movie continues that tradition. Filled with rich color and animation, this story send you deep into the 100 Acre Woods with the characters that you know and love. People of all ages will love this movie and its light-hearted tone. The movie allows Pooh to come out on top as he does and learn from the mistakes that he makes (another great message for our kids). I found myself laughing and with a smile on my face by the end of the movie and I know that you will as well. My kids also were transfixed throughout the movie. At the end they asked, "Can we watch it again?" I know that this movie will be one that stays in our family for a long time to come!
