Winnie The Pooh DVD BLU RAY Combo Pack on Sale today 10/25! Review!!

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with "Winnie the Pooh," the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney's feature animation studios in more than 35 years. With the timeless 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, Owl, Kanga, Roo-and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail.

"The entire story takes place in the course of a day," says director Don Hall. "It's business as usual in the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh wakes up absolutely famished and he happens to have no honey. So that sets him out on his journey, which is ultimately derailed-first by a contest to find Eeyore a new tail."
Pooh later finds a note from Christopher Robin that reads: "Gone out. Busy. Back soon." But then Owl misinterprets the note, proclaiming that the boy has been captured by a creature called a "Backson." Soon, the whole gang is on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from the imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply hoped to find some honey.

I'm from the old school of Pooh, the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh from the late 70's is the one I grew up with. With the voice talents of Sterling Holloway as Pooh Himself, and the classic song Heffalumps and Woozels I thought the new Winnie the Pooh movie would pale in comparison.....however it gave the Pooh of my childhood a good run for it's money!

Jim Cummings steps in Sterling's place almost seamlessly, he mimics Sterling's voice to where you almost can't tell the difference! John Cleese from Monty Python fame takes over the reins as narrator with charming wit and humour and to top it all off Zooey Deschanel adds her beautiful vocals to the soundtrack!

I'm seriously going to have to rewatch Many Adventures just to see if there were as many jokes that appealed to adults as well as children like Winnie the Pooh has! And of course I defy anyone that watches Winnie the Pooh not to get " A Pooh Bear Takes Care of His Tummy" NOT  stuck in their heads....I mean come on...a duet with a burbling tummy....it doesn't get any cuter than that!

Right now there is a coupon here good for $5 off the 3 disc combo pack that's good until 11/1

I received a review copy in return for my honest opinion
