Spread the love

I absolutely loved this movie which follows Winnie the Pooh and his friends on a whole new adventure, based on three of the original stories by author A. A. Milne. All the beloved characters are back – Christopher Robin, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo, Piglet and of course Pooh Bear.

The film opens with sketches of Winnie the Pooh and I immediately know the classic Pooh vibe is back. Sweet, lazy days spent looking for honey, marching across bridges and solving mysteries. When Eeyore loses his tail, his friends hold a competition to find a new one, with fun results. Owl’s misunderstanding leads Winnie and his friends off on a wild hunt to find Christopher Robin in the Hundred Acre Wood.

An extraordinary cast of actors brings the beloved characters to life for a new generation of kids. My favorites are Travis Oates as the anxious Piglet and Jim Cummings who plays both the humble Pooh Bear and an enthusiastic Tigger. I love the graceful way Zooey Deschanel sings the Winnie the Pooh theme song. She has a voice like an angel.

I give this new Winnie the Pooh adventure 5 out of 5 stars. If you loved Winnie the Pooh when you were little, or if you’re just meeting him and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood for the first time, you won’t want to miss this authentic new addition to the Pooh Bear series. This is a perfect summertime movie for the whole family to enjoy together.
