Who Thought Disney Could Make Another Masterpiece?
17 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Deep in the Hundred-Acre Wood lives an eclectic assortment of cuddly creatures. They've lived there for as long as any of us can remember— first coming to the big screen with The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Although Disney's later attempts to give A. A. Milne's characters more movies have been somewhat successful, they never matched the original. However, the new Winnie the Pooh is just as funny, hypnotic, and wonderful as the original.

The film begins with Pooh finding himself in a familiar predicament; he's run out of honey. As he sets out to find some, he gets involved in all sorts of predicaments with his friends. From trying to find a replacement tail for Eeyore to setting traps for the "Backson" monster, Pooh's adventures are all at once familiar and refreshingly new.

The new characters for the voices are all wonderful, sounding enough like the originals that the difference is barely noticeable. Tom Kenny as Rabbit and Craig Ferguson as Owl are both highlights. But it's Bud Luckey as the perpetually melancholic Eeyore that is the most fun to listen to. The characters themselves are, of course, as lovable as ever; Pooh being "a bear of very little brain" and Owl always rambling on incoherently. John Cleese (of Monty Python fame) is wonderful as the narrator, and the characters interact with him and the letters of the book just as they did in the original; only this time they weave it seamlessly into the plot.

Winnie the Pooh is a beautiful movie. For the most part it was drawn by hand, which is something that doesn't happen too often these days. The colors are vibrant, the backgrounds moody, and Pooh's honey dream- sequence ranks up there with his heffalumps and woozles dream.

The movie is short, clocking in at only a little over an hour, but it is perfect. Whimsical, and gently beautiful, Winnie the Pooh is a masterful Disney animated film, ranking with the likes of Pinocchio, Fantasia, and Bambi. No matter how old you are, this movie gives off enough warmth to fill anyone's heart with joy.
