So it turns out I love Animated Theatrically Released Disney Movies. This list only includes those films released through the…
Winnie the Pooh
During an ordinary day in Hundred Acre Wood, Winnie the Pooh sets out to find some honey. Misinterpreting a note from Christopher Robin, Pooh convinces Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and Eeyore that their young friend has been captured by a creature named "Backson" and they set out to save him.
Son: "I want to be like Pooh bear."
Me: "Why's that?"
Son: "He's never in a hurry like you and mommy."
Yeah. That completely and utterly shut me up.
The official big-screen return to the Hundred Acre Wood by Walt Disney Animation Studios is an uninspired exercise of nostalgia which shockingly short running length is a sign of the studio's potential decay and lack of creativity, if we also consider that it is the third feature ever to have a direct sequel after Fantasia (1940) and The Rescuers (1977) had their respective follow-ups. It has, nevertheless, some positive aspects worth a mention, such as the studio not giving up to the hope of traditional 2D animation, which surely looks great, the simplicity involved in the events and the comedy, and the verbal humor, a trick that I am particularly a fan of.

This new film of Winnie the Pooh was very charming, sweet, funny, heartwarming, and beautifully animated. I'm somewhat disappointed it bombed hard at the box office (I believe it was released at the same time as one of the Harry Potter films, so that could explain a lot) and that it is not more known around the world. It's perfect for children and adults alike and totally harmless classic entertainment. I enjoyed the voice cast, Zooey Deschanel's opening song and the other musical parts, and the whole family friendly atmosphere of the film. Overall, I wish it was a bit longer but I quite liked it and it was a fun nostalgic trip to the shelter of my childhood.
Criminally unseen at the time of its release, Winnie the Pooh is easily the best adaptation of the popular children's characters. One wonders if this were released now, with Lego Movie bringing out the kid in all of us, if it would do better business and attract more viewers. As it stands this is probably Disney's last foray into hand drawn animated features for the foreseeable future and if that's the case then this is a fine note to exit on.
A movie that understands the value of not wasting time or dragging its story out. 64 minutes long and not an ounce of fat.
So glad I watched the 1977 version before this one. In this one, the animation is nice and it might appeal to children. However, the story is dull and filled with unnecessary music, and the characters all sound depressed. Definitely go with the 1977 movie.
I'm serious. This is so good. I feel good. Don't shame me. This is a good movie.
It was weird watching this movie and recognizing the voice actors. It was also weird to realize how bad these characters' problem solving skills were. My trip down Memory Lane turned into a trip of Realizing the Truth.
Either this provides nourishment to the last vestiges of innocence in your soul or it doesn't. 63 minutes with the end credits, 53 without them. Teensy niggle is that Christopher Robin sounds like a baby. Mostly an unstoppable force for good in this universe and the "HUNNY" sequence is a total showstopper. Ideal mixture of 2D and 3D animation. One of the decade's most underrated/underseen. Along with Lucy, skipping this in theaters is one of my moviegoing regrets of the last few years.
Una bonita animación, una banda sonora linda y un guión sencillo aunque no sea la gran cosa esta bien para el estilo del personaje.
Que deja con un buen sabor de boca tantos a los niños como adultos.
I thought this was the old movie with pooh sticks and heffalumps and woozels. It wasn't and it was pretty disappointing. Characters that had specific traits and nuances all get lumped into being frustratingly stupid. A bunch of nothing trying to be classic. The banter becomes ill timed and redundant. Wanted to show my kid Winnie the Pooh and he had little interest because of the constant dull monotonous droning of the characters.
The characters are adorable, the voices work well, the animation is creative thanks to the "book" concept, the story is a little funny but quite cute.
A great movie for little children and enjoyable for their parents to watch with them.
Filled with nostalgia this is how you make a modern classic it doesn't need to have some new twist on the original or be dark and gritty.
It’s very interesting to see Winnie the Pooh on the big screen again. For one, this film isn’t very long, I think it’s close to fifty minutes without credits and another thing, Winnie the Pooh gets so many direct to video releases and so many theatrical releases like The Tigger Movie and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie which sadly almost feels like it’s marketed towards little kids, toddlers to be exact. And honestly, I don’t understand why that is because Pooh is not just meant for little kids as proved in its original release, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Here the film is simply called, Winnie the Pooh. It’s also interesting to note that this is the latest 2D animated…
What a pointless movie, at only 62 minutes this movie just wasn't necessary. Why it's part of the Disney animated canon is beyond me.
Disney is pretty cool and while I think a LOT of their stuff gets overpraiswd I still enjoy it. Here's…
