Review: Disney’s Winnie The Pooh Movie

Winnie the Pooh

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

A simple teddy bear and his friends has captivated children and their parents for 85 years. Can you believe that Winnie-the-Pooh has been around for 85 years and yet still remains relevant for children. We have three copies of the complete stories of Winnie-the-Pooh and as coincidence would have it we’ve begun reading a chapter a night to Eva and we just received a copy of the new Disney’s Winnie The Pooh movie. Allison and Eva saw this movie in the theaters and I missed that event so I was glad to share the movie with them yesterday. Here are my impressions of that movie which comes out today.

I enjoyed this movie, it was cute. If you read the Winnie the Pooh stories you will recognize much of this movie because so many elements of each story are mashed up together into this new story. The central story is finding Eyeore’s tail but included within it are many other stories like Bizy Backsun and more. I think that all the stories put together in this way worked well for the movie. It is very old school animation too, a throwback to Disney animated movies of the past. There are also some new wonderful songs done by Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. It was an entertaining movie for both kids and parents. The voice talents were wonderful too. I especially liked Craig Ferguson as Owl and John Cleese as the narrator.

I have some videos from the movie as well as some downloadable and printable activities, masks and coloring pages after the jump. Continue reading Review: Disney’s Winnie The Pooh Movie

Something So Sweet Coming to DVD: Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh

Allison and Eva went to see the Winnie the Pooh movie one afternoon without me. So, I can’t tell you much about what it was about but I can tell you that they came home very happy with what they saw. Allison is such a Winnie the Pooh fan that she has the complete set of Winnie the Pooh stories several times over. Basically both children (Eva and “Baby Surprise”, to be released in November, LOL) have a full set of the books for their rooms. So we are a Winnie the Pooh friendly family. And so, when Allison and Eva gave the movie a thumbs up I knew it had to be good. Well, the movie is being released on Blu-ray, DVD & Movie Download October 25th. But to get you excited here are some Honey related Recipes and movie clips I’d like to share with you.
