Disney Relaunches ‘Winnie The Pooh’ With New Trailer
Disney returns with a hand-drawn animated feature.
You have to hand it to Disney for not ruining all their beloved stories by bringing them back in a CGI animated feature. With ‘Princess and the Frog’ and ‘Tangled’, they proved that they care about their characters and will stick to the hand-drawn format when needed. The new trailer for their upcoming hand-drawn animated feature of ‘Winnie the Pooh’ just re-affirms that.
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh,” the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the 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, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.” 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 hunny. Inspired by five stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” hits theaters July 15, 2011.
There is no way you can watch this trailer without a whole storm of nostalgia gushing past you. It’s great to see the gang back together once again and the movie looks sweet and utterly faithful to its source material. When it comes to Winnie the Pooh, what else can you really ask for?
