Winnie the Pooh Review ( In Theaters July 15th)

Winnie the Pooh and his forever rumbly tumbly are part of the cutest, cuddliest adventure I’ve seen in a long time! The classic charm of the original stories and films remains intact, but with a gently modernized twist.

Winnie the Pooh

Pooh’s friend Eeyore (completely hilarious in this movie) has lost his tail, and all the woodland friends decide to have a contest. The one who finds him a tail wins a prize pot of honey.

The funny tails they try out on Eeyore are completely delightful!

Along the way, they mistakenly think Christopher Robin has been captured by a creature called a “Backson”, and Owl (eccentrically voiced by Craig Ferguson) sends everyone out to save him.

The hand-drawn animation creates such an amiable, pleasant setting, and the bumbling friends are as endearing as ever.

John Cleese is brilliant with his narration, and one of my very favorite parts about the movie is how they interact with the text on the pages. It’s completely irresistible and SO much fun!

Rated G, the movie is a sweet and classic treasure for all ages. I absolutely adored it.

  1. I cannot wait to see this movie. Honestly, I think I am more excited than LL.

  2. Oh, I like that you remembered to let everyone know about “staying for the credits”. I was JUST talking about this w/ my husband last night. Such a cute movie. My son already has SO many of the clips memorized and he’s anxious to attend the advanced press screening on Wednesday. Great review btw!

  3. Even as an adult, I can’t wait to see this!

  4. Graham is so excited to see this movie! It sounds great!

  5. It looks like such a cute movie, and it’s great that they didn’t update the illustration style, for tradionalists like me that is so appreciated. I’m hoping to take my daughter to see the movie soon. Sadly due to a scheduling conflict, we can’t attend the prescreening in our area.

  6. Winnie the Pooh, has my heart as well, my kids cannot wait to see it in the theaters and I’m going again, that’s for sure!!

  7. Love Winnie the Pooh!
