Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo Reviews
Everyone is excited for the upcoming Easter and can't wait to talk to Rabbit about his plans for this year; unfortunately, Rabbit takes advantage of the holiday being about a Rabbit and cancels Easter for Spring Cleaning Day. While working, his friends have their own pretend Easter. Rabbit sees it and believes his friends had Easter without him. Rabbit will need to correct his mistakes and apologize to his friends the only way he knows how...by planning epic Easter events.
"First, you sneak up on them. Then you pounce."
"Just like I taught him."
Saul Blinkoff (Doc McStuffins, Kronk's New Grove, and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie) and Elliot Bour (Pixie Hollow Bake Off, Kronk's New Grove, and Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie) collaborate to deliver Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo. The storyline for this picture is actually very well done and interesting despite containing elements from Scrooge. The animation is classic Winnie the Pooh and the voices fit the character perfectly.
"Honey is no good for anything but making messes."
"...and eating, Rabbit."
We came across this on Netflix and immediately added it to the queue. We just watched it in hopes spring would be here soon. We found the film very well done and the plot unfolds well. There are some good lessons in here about how to communicate with friends. This is borderline worth adding to your DVD collection.
"Sometimes a narrator has to do what a narrator has to do."
(Full review coming soon)
Not one of my favourite Pooh films as this is just A Christmas Carol put as an Easter version.
People who like Roo will hate Jimmy Bennett's voice and Rabbit's mood like pushing Pooh and the others out of his house and slapping Tigger is just too intense for a Pooh film.
Just stay away from it! Please do me a favour.
