Coming Attraction: Winnie the Pooh (2011)

November 20, 2010

Thirty-five years after making its last Pooh film, Walt Disney Animation Studios is returning to the Hundred Acre Wood. For the first time since 1976, Disney will be using original A. A. Milne stories as the basis for a Winnie the Pooh film. Stephen J. Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and Don Hall (writer of The Princess and the Frog) directed the film and IMDb lists its release date as July 15, 2011.

Craig Ferguson (The Late Late Show) voices Owl, Jim Cummings (accomplished voice actor) voices Pooh and Tigger, and Tom Kenny (Sponge Bob Square Pants) voices Rabbit.

It appears as though the story revolves around a hunt for a new tail for Eeyore. I love that the backgrounds look hand-painted, but I can’t say that I care for the digitally-sanitized look of the characters in the trailer.
