Winnie the Pooh (2011) Poster

Trivia

For the Backson song, the animators' drawings were inked with wide-tipped felt markers and given a rough texture in post production to make them look like chalkboard drawings.
This is only the third time that Walt Disney Animation Studios produced a sequel to one of their films from the Disney Animated Classics canon in-house. The previous instances are as follows: The Rescuers Down Under (1990) followed The Rescuers (1977) and Fantasia 2000 (1999) followed Fantasia (1940).
HIDDEN MICKEY: After Tigger makes the first step from the mud when he went to look for Eeyore.
While Disney has made many Winnie the Pooh movies, this is only their second to be produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. All of their other Winnie the Pooh movies, both those released direct to video/DVD and those released theatrically, were produced by DisneyToon Studios and thus are not considered to be official sequels.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez not only wrote new songs for this movie but they also stared in this movie as the voice of Kanga (filling in for Kath Soucie) and the sounds of Pooh Bear's tummy respectively.

Peter Del Vecho loved their songs so much that he rehired them 2 years later to write songs for the movie Frozen (2013).

The opening song features a slightly changed Hundred Acre Wood map, much like the original film. At the bottom of the map, it says, "Drawn by me" (implying Christopher Robin). On the second page, it says, "With help from Mr. Shepard." The original artist of the Winnie-the-Pooh books was E. H. Shepard.

The reason Peter Cullen did not voice Eeyore for this film was likely as he was busy voicing Optimus Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) at the time of recording.
