WTP-Springtime-Roo-BD-Combo-artJust in time for Spring (and Easter) Disney has released Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo for the first tine on Blu-ray.

Don’t let the title fool you, this is really a story about Rabbit.  Rabbit, being the control freak that he is, is sad because his well-planned Easter was ruined.  The gang from the 100 acre wood hurt Rabbit’s feelings when they had an Easter egg hunt without him the previous year.  It’s a long story to tell you about how things got to this point. Ok, it’s really only a 65 minute story but I won’t spoil it for you.

My only real disappointment with this release was the lack of bonus features, though I’m not too surprised as this was originally a direct-to-video release.

Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo is sure to delight your kids, grown ups should enjoy it too (I did).  While I’ll admit to not really being a big fan of the Winnie The Pooh movies, it was a cute story.

Synopsis:
Each year, Rabbit plays Easter Bunny, but this year, he’s decided it’s “Spring Cleaning Day,” and he orders everyone to hop to it: scrubbing, dusting, and mopping. All his pals are disappointed – especially little Roo – until Rabbit learns that putting others first and showing friends how much you care turns every day into a precious gift. Sparkling with unforgettable songs and a never-before-seen bonus treat, this delightful “egg-stravaganza” shows why love, hope and friendship are always in full bloom in the Hundred Acre Wood!
