Movie Info

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with Winnie the Pooh. Featuring 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. "Ever have one of those days where you just can't win, Eeyore?" asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey. Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne's books in Disney's classic, hand-drawn art style. -- (C) Walt Disney

  • Winnie the Pooh generates smiles and chuckles from start to finish with its good-natured, episodic story of Pooh and friends going on a wild-goose chase to find a supposedly missing Christopher Robin...

  • It's a pleasure to sink into an animated family movie from Disney that radiates charm with a gentleness that seems damn near revolutionary.

  • This is indeed good old Pooh, nothing to fear. No space robots or serial killers have been added to the cast.

  • One would have to have a heart of cold temperament to find much -- if anything -- wrong with the animated adventure Winnie the Pooh.

  • Winnie the Pooh will make big people remember their childhoods. And small people will have fun getting to know all of us in the Hundred Acre Wood.

    Everything that made the first Winnie the Pooh animated feature so adorable (the official one, also by Walt Disney Animation Studios) is found here too, from great songs to adorable stories, and it is a delightful return to the traditional hand-drawn animation of the old days.

    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 <i>Fantasia</i> (1940) and <i>The Rescuers</i> (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. The musical numbers are still there, even if they sucked, and the typical animated sequence seemingly composed by the imagination of several LSD-driven animators like the ones we had in classic Disney gets a humble revival here. Unfortunately, it doesn't only fail as a continuation of the new 2D animation within the studio, but also fails as a <i>Winnie the Pooh</i> story. By 2014, this film is already completely forgotten, whereas the previous installment of the 70s can be at least considered a classic, fairly. The characters are fillers and are not given a chance to develop, because this is being treated as a direct sequel to the previous film. The characters, therefore, do not receive the proper care. The previous direct-to-video features were painfully boring, but even those had a more interesting story. Is this a step forward or a step back? Or did these guys remain exactly at the same spot? I'd say the latter happened. It was a filler project with no heart despite its efforts to make it seem that it has one. Be it as it may, the "I cannot knot" sequence is quite funny. 51/100

    Eeyore has lost his tail. There's a competition to find him a new tail.

    Disney Movie #8: Winnie the Pooh Winnie the Pooh is short, and that's what keeps it interesting. With the classic Winnie the Pooh character, the 2011 installment is just as good as the original: it's funny, well paced and well written. Although this film is targeted at young children only, it will interest parents also, bringing them back to when they watched The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Altogether, Winnie the Pooh is solid family entertainment and has characters that are undeniably charming and to say it shortly, Winnie the Pooh is short but sweet.
