Go back to the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh - Now on Blu Ray

Winnie the Pooh was always my favorite bear when I was a kid. I attended the screening earlier this year when the movie was released, which you can read about HERE

What I loved was the retro feel of it, no special effects, classic animation, no inappropriate humor, just a good clean family movie that you can feel confident taking the little ones to see.

Film Synopsis:

Disney returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, thisall-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very littlebrain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo – and last, butcertainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of thosedays where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang ona wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns outto be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey.Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A.Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

Blu-ray™ Bonus Features:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  · Exclusive bonus short “Mini-Adventures of Winnie thePooh: The Balloon” – In this charming short, Pooh comes up with a daring plan to get a hold of some honey by fooling a group of bees.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  “The Ballad of Nessie” - The animated short film included in the theatrical release is the heart warming tale of  how Nessie found her new home in the Loch Ness.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ·  “Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too” – A fun and informative behind-the-scenes look at the film, designed for the whole family. Hosted by John Cleese (narrator of the film), and with occasional help from Pooh himself, this featurette explores Winnie the Pooh’s history from his beginnings as a character in a book, to his continued life in the movies. The filmmakers reveal how they worked to keep the look of the characters and settings in this movie consistent with their first appearances on-screen in1966. Pooh, being a bear of very little mind, finds much of this confusing, but the Narrator and the filmmakers make it all clear to Pooh – and you!
