WINNIE THE POOH starts with the classic scene of a live action stuffed Pooh sitting on the bed with all his stuffed friends in Christopher Robin’s room. Of course sitting right next to Pooh Bear is the classic Winnie the Pooh book, and the movie flips right into the pages to get started on the plotline of the classic Pooh tale.
A tale as old as Pooh time, Pooh wakes up thinking about honey. To find honey becomes Pooh’s main thought throughout the whole movie, which is very typical Pooh. Pooh’s tummy is growling to such an effect it’s almost leading his steps right into Eeyore, who has just lost his tail.
All the friends gather to help Eeyore find the best tail in order to replace the missing one. Whoever finds Eeyore the best tail gets the ultimate gift of a jar of honey! This of course excites everyone. In his search, comes to Christopher Robin’s house where he finds a note posted by Christopher Robin. Pooh takes the note to Owl, who’s composing his own autobiography.
The wise Owl misreads Christopher’s note, telling everyone a monster named “Backson” has taken Christopher. Of course, the loyal friends get together to try to capture Backson and save Christopher Robin. In the end, Pooh and each of his friends learn to sacrifice to help each other.
WINNIE THE POOH flips through the traditional Pooh books in order to replicate the iconic series made in the 1960s. Adorable and beautifully produced, WINNIE THE POOH truly shows the classic Hundred Acre Wood and all the fun, lovable characters several generations have grown up loving.
WINNIE THE POOH is a beautifully crafted movie that truly takes the audience back to the original Pooh tradition. Each lovable character has his own distinct voice. Even better, all the characters support and help one another. WINNIE THE POOH is truly an adorable story for the entire family.
