It’s time to go back and find your inner-child. Disney’s Winnie The Pooh will be hitting theaters next summer and it has been quite a while since we saw the lovely Pooh Bear on the big screen. It is not too often that we get hand drawn animated features these days, but when we do, I feel that we get something more out of the film. Winnie The Pooh looks excellent. The colors, drawings, and animation all work beautifully in this trailer, but I am on the fence about the incorporation of CGI use. Boy these characters bring me back, which hopefully will have the same affect on a lot of people to make it to the theater to see these classic characters.

Next summer fans of A.A. Milne's beloved honey enthusiast bear will be able to see a brand new adventure featuring Winnie the Pooh. Walt Disney Animation Studios is making the new Pooh film and they're doing it the old fashioned, traditional way with no CG (computer graphics) to be found.
That's not to say that the new Winnie the Pooh movie won't take its inspiration from the classic 1973 Disney film. The look of the 2011 Pooh film is similar to that of the '73 film but Disney is taking advantage of the modern filmmaking techniques to tell its new story. This is the first Winnie the Pooh film in 35 years, and while new talent is helping make the film (Meet the Robinsons Stephen J. Anderson and The Princess and the Frog story artist Don Hall are co-directing the movie), key animator Burny Mattinson, who worked on the 1974 Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too! »

While some companies are turning to a live-action/CGI blend with their older properties, Walt Disney is sticking to what it knows best and will bring a brand new Winnie the Pooh film to screens for the first time in 35 years next summer. At the helm are Stephen J. Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and Don Hall (story for The Princess and the Frog), who are working off five short stories by A.A. Milne. Joining the fray on voice cast for the first time are Craig Ferguson, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Bud Luckey (director of the Pixar short Boundin’). Zooey Deschanel will be performing the Pooh theme song, while Tony Award-winning songwriter Bobby Lopez will be providing seven new songs.
With all that, this certainly is shaping up to be a winning effort from Disney. I personally can’t wait. This will be hand-drawn wholesomeness that only Pooh can inspire. »

Disney has announced that "Winnie the Pooh" will be released on July 15, 2011. Another one from Disney, "Reboot Ralph" (formerly known as "Joe Jump") will be seen on March 22, 2013.
As we told you last September, John Lasseter, Academy Award-winning animator, director, and the chief creative officer at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is exec producing the project based on A.A. Milne's children classic. The film will feature five of the author's original stories.
Steve Anderson and Don Hall ("Meet the Robinsons") are directing the film. Jim Cummings will voice Pooh/Tigger, and Craig Ferguson (I love him!) will voice the Owl. The best part? Burny Mattinson, the animator of the original "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree" featurette in 1964, will serve as lead story artist on the new project.
Meanwhile, "Reboot Ralph," according to Moviefone, "is rumored to be about an '80s-era video game character who makes »
