Walt Disney Studios will be releasing it’s highly successful animated film Winnie the Pooh (2011) on DVD and Blu-ray Combo pack on October 25, 2011. The film is inspired by the A. A. Milne stories, and it is the newest installment in Winnie the Pooh film series by Walt Disney. The latest release is much similar to 1977 original film “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” and way better than the other adaptations.
The story follows Pooh (voiced by Jim Cummings) who is always searching for honey but his hunt for honey is ruined when he learns that his pal Eeyore (voiced by Bud Luckey) has lost his tail. Pooh and his other associates start to find Eeyore a new tail, and as they progress toward that task, they find out that Christopher Robin (voiced by Jack Boutler) has disappeared, leaving behind a note. As Owl (voiced by Craig Ferguson) doesn’t read well, he reads the note to mean that he has been taken by the monster. So Rabbit (voiced by Tom Kenny) arranges a trap to capture the monster, Tigger (voiced by Jim Cummings) starts training depressed Eeyore how to be a second Tigger, and Pooh goes on his hunt for honey.
The storyline is simple yet entertaining, takes the viewers back to the days of story book tales. Both the animation and the characters are appealing and not awful and it holds that wonderful quality of the original movie. Also the whole voice cast does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. Winnie the Pooh soundtrack and theme song by artist Zooey Deschanel are all fit wonderfully.
The Blu-ray Combo pack releases will include extra features, including the elite animated shorts "The Ballad of Nessie" and "Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon;" a sing-along screening option; an informative behind-the-scenes featurette and erased scenes with director comments.
