Walt Disney Feature Animation’s next big project after “Tangled” is a new Winnie the Pooh movie for the big screen next year.
Simply titled “Winnie the Pooh” (surprised they hadn’t used that title yet) this marks Pooh’s first return to the big screen since 2005’s “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie” and the first Pooh movie since 1977’s “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” based on original stories (5 in this case) by Pooh’s creator, AA Milne.
Synopsis: Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh,” the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the 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, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.” 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 hunny.
