Winnie the Pooh on Blu-ray and DVD Today!


Inspired by the beloved stories from A.A. Milne’s books and crafted in Disney’s classic style, “Winnie the Pooh,” is the most critically-acclaimed animated film of 2011*.  It is narrated by the voice of John Cleese and features the vocal talents of legendary voice actor Jim Cummings(over 350 voices including Gnomeo & Juliet) and a host of other distinctive actors including Craig Ferguson(TV’s ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’), Tom Kenny (TV’s ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’), Bud Luckey (Toy Story 3) and musical performances by Zooey Deschanel (indie folk band “She & Him”).

Oh Winnie the Pooh, what a beloved character. This silly old bear's name is familiar with kids of all ages. He truly is a childhood favorite that has crossed generations. I remember going on adventures in the Hundred Acre Woods when I was a little girl, and I am thrilled to be able to go back with my daughter.

Disney 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. Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

Winnie the Pooh is a classic tale about friendship that can be enjoyed by kids and adults. We loved sitting down to see our favorite characters setting out to save their favorite boy, Christopher Robin. With a group of characters this dynamic there is sure to be a favorite for every one in your family. My husband is a fan of Tigger and his bouncy, happy ways. I enjoy the underdog, Piglet, whose heart is much bigger than he is. And my daughter is drawn to the big guy himself, Winnie the Pooh.

This movie shows how an ordinary day can become extraordinary when you are with friends. Adventure is at every corner! It is a definite must for family movie night! And when the film is done the fun is not. Enjoy some great bonus features, including a sing along!
