There is something fun and special about taking your kids to the movie – it’s so much more exciting than watching a movie at home. We had the chance to catch an early screening of Winnie the Pooh on Tuesday – it was adorable! I love hearing an audience full of children laughing, and I heard a quite a bit of it that night. The movie revolves around adventure and solving problems ………… the Winnie the Pooh way.
It all starts out innocently enough with Pooh trying to find some honey to tame his rumbly tummy. From there we learn that old gloomy Eeyore has lost his tail. Owl decides that a contest is in order to come up with a new tail. Some of the silly suggestions included a cuckoo clock and an umbrella. Next up is the fact that Christopher Robins has come up missing. The gang (Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore and Pooh) first try to figure out what happened to Christopher and then they devise a plan to get him back – it’s very entertaining.
My favorite scene is when all Pooh can think about is honey, honey, honey……. I also liked it when they used some cute play on words; is it issue or achoo – did Owl sneeze? Another example occurred during a rescue scene when Rabbit ask Piglet if he can tie a knot and Piglet replies “I can not”. Rabbit responds with “so you can knot”! There are also some great moments provided by Tigger and his bouncy tail.
How can you not like Winnie the Pooh. There are no special effects or 3-D versions just first rate classic storytelling with beautifully simple animation. This G rated movie is a real gem. It’s in theatres July 15th. Thank you Disney!
I was given pre-screening tickets for the Winnie the Pooh movie by Disney. My opinions are honest and 100% my own.
