When the gang from the Hundred Acre Wood begin a honey harvest, young Piglet is excluded and told that he is too small to help. Feeling inferior, Piglet disappears and his pals Eeyore, Rabbit, Tigger, Roo, and Winnie the Pooh must use Piglet's scrapbook as a map to find him. In the process they discover that this very small animal has been a big hero in a lot of ways. Written by Sujit R. Varma

One of Disney's rare successes
11 August 2004 | by (Santa Cruz, CA) – See all my reviews

Disney is certainly guilty of releasing a long string of disappointing, soulless, superficial animated features, e.g., The Lion King. However, Piglet's Big Movie has soul, and is extremely well-crafted. I'm 43, and I enjoy this movie just as much as my five year old daughter. There are moving moments throughout, which are deeply reinforced by Carly Simon's wonderful work. The animation is beautiful, creative, and punctuates the storyline in surprising ways. It reminds me of Kiki's Delivery Service, another excellent animated feature.

The flashback sequences work well for me, particularly since I read the original Milne books to my daughter, the source material for these flashbacks.

This movie is much better than other Disney attempts at Pooh I've seen, such as the Tigger movie from a few years ago. It seems that Hollywood is incapable of creating anything of value. In Piglet's Big Movie, the key elements of the soundtrack are from Carly Simon (New York), and the animation was crafted in Japan.

I don't quite understand why this movie receives such poor reviews in IMDb. Perhaps viewers have been fed so much garbage from Disney for so long that, like sugar and high fructose corn syrup, viewers' tastes have become dulled and swollen to the point that craftsmanship is no longer appreciated, nor can viewers appreciate an elegantly executed, yet simple storyline. I'd like to blame Disney for just "giving its audience what it wants", but then, this is a democracy, and ultimately, the people decide where quality lies.
