Winnie the Pooh - Movie Review

Disney has relaunched their Winnie the Pooh franchise by putting out a new Winnie the Pooh film, with classic 2D animation. The movie is based on the stories of A. A. Milne, and starts of with Pooh on a quest to find honey. Of course, the movie can't be complete with gloomy Eyore losing his tail yet again. Christopher Robin and his friends Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Owl, Rabit, Eyore, Kanga and Roo hold a contest to find Eyore a new tail. The rest of the movie follows Pooh and his friends trying to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary monster.

The movie is really cute and a great throwback to the older Winnie the Pooh movies that some older audiences may remember. The landscape is beautifully drawn and the animation is superb. I have always preferred the old school hand drawn animation style! The film is told as a story being read and Pooh and his friends always get tangled up in the words. It's very cute and funny! Thankfully the movie is only about an hour long because I was getting a bit restless by the end. Stay until the end of the credits though, because there is a cute scene at the very end, as well as some animation during the credits.

Winnie the Pooh is a great film to take young children to because it will be delightful for them, especially if they are Pooh fans! I don't expect older audiences to be too interested to see it in theatres. Winnie the Pooh comes out everywhere next Friday, July 15th.
