Winnie the Pooh is a classic and Disney has brought the movie to the big screen. This past weekend the kids and I (minus hubby) went to a special pre-screening in our local area. I asked each of the kids if they wanted to see the movie since the boys are 13 and 11 I thought it might not interest them. However they decided they wanted to go and enjoy the movie with their sister.
At first Nick said if this is a cartoon I’m not going to like it. After the movie concluded though he said it was pretty good. In fact all three of them enjoyed it and I found it to be rather cute. When I mentioned to my mother that we saw it and I remembered how I use to love Winnie the Pooh as a child she said that was an understatement. In fact she said I was borderline obsessed with Winnie the Pooh. Really can you blame me? Each character is so different and cute from little Piglet to sad Eeyore.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless 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, Owl, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of those days where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. 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 honey. Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” hits theatres on July 15th!
Shibley Smiles Opinions:
Appropriate Age: Shibley Smiles feels this movie is suited for all ages. The movie is just the right length for smaller children (around an hour) and is sure to warm any Pooh lovers heart.
Thoughts: The movie had some funny parts and some very cute parts. I love how the actual “book” is brought into the movie. We really feel you can’t go wrong with this children’s classic.
