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

Carly Simon wrote seven new songs for the film, while also recording the classic Sherman brothers Winnie the Pooh theme tune. She was accompanied by her children Ben and Sally (from her marriage to James Taylor) on several of the songs. See more »
Tigger appears in the segment when Kanga and Roo move in, which is very odd since he first appeared in "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" where Kanga and Roo were already part of. See more »
Piglet's Big Movie is a sweet children's movie, though I don't think it is as good as the Tigger Movie. There are flaws with the movie, the characters due to the voice actors changing have drastically changed, Rabbit especially. The plot is a little unfocused, it is nice that adorable Piglet has his own movie, but only the last quarter of or so of the film was dedicated completely to Piglet, there were parts when it was suggestive of an extended TV episode. And it is rather short, so the limitations in script and plot are glaring sadly. However, the voice acting is very good, Jim Cummings is marvellous as Tigger and Pooh, and John Fiedler voices Piglet beautifully. The art work, while not as good as the animation in the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, is still decent, and the songs by Carly Simon, especially the stirring Sing Ho For the Life of the Bear are surprisingly memorable. All in all, sweet. 7/10 Bethany Cox
