Winnie The Pooh (2011)

I feel so bad not seeing this movie until now because it is quite wonderful.

I'm kinda surprised the film got a theatrical release, a rare thing indeed for Pooh, but the film barely scrapes by an hour! And even more so, this was Disney's last hand drawn film which is a real shame because it looks very, very good. So we start in a very familiar way and in a familiar setting, where the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood have discovered that Eeyore has lost his tail and they all venture to find it, later finding a letter by Christopher Robin that they misunderstand as a warning against a terrible creature known as a backson leading our friends to try and trap the creature and relocate Eeyore's tail. This sounds basic, but let me tell you this was a blast to watch. The writers really must be applauded because there is so much good humor and funny moments it keeps the movie going in unique ways. There's even more fourth wall humor, way more funnier than last time which is a joy to see. It's similar in style to the original movie, yet has it's own unique look and story. Voice cast is still really good, with Jim Cummings doing great work though I have to admit Tigger kinda sounds like Bill Murray in Caddyshack. Special love goes to Kristen Anderson-Lopez who plays Kanga, I can't explain why but she is pure magic in this movie and for such a small role she brings such enjoyment for me. It's short, it's sweet, it's wonderful. And I cannot wait for Friday, but also sadly it will be the last review for a good long while, at least until late September then we come back full force. Until Friday good friends.
