Choosy Perspective: “Winnie the Pooh” Blu-Ray Pick

Return to the hundred acre wood in an all-new animated feature that brings back some of the most beloved animated characters from our childhood. Winnie, Tigger, Eyeore, Piglet and everyone else return. Craig Ferguson joins the cast as Owl, and John Cleese narrates the stories, with original music by Zooey Deschanel.

The film is split up into a few different stories, based on the original A.A. Milne books which provided inspiration for the interlinking plots of the movie. Pooh and friends set out to “rescue” Christopher Robin after assuming he’s been abducted by a creature in the forest, all of this while on the search for honey and Eeyore’s missing tail.

It’s refreshing to see a feature film that is, not only actual animation, but entertaining and genuinely funny.

The Blu-Ray offers up a host of features, including deleted scenes and a sing-a-long function that lets you (you guessed it!) sing along with the great songs from the film! I also love the “Ballad of Nessie” short film about the Loch Ness Monster as well as the Winnie the Pooh short, “The Balloon” in which Winnie tries to fool a group of bees so he can get his honey. The best part of the film, to me, is the coda after the credits. So when you pick up the film, be sure not to miss it! It will keep you laughing.

At 68 minutes, the film is great for kids and families, or just the young at heart. It’s a great story that keeps you laughing, especially as Cleese talks to Winnie through the narration. And with October being National Honey Month, what better way to celebrate than picking up Winnie the Pooh on Blu-Ray when it released October 25?

You can also get some great honey recipes to go along with the film, just by clicking the banner below!

Winnie the Pooh comes to DVD and Blu-Ray October 25th. Pre-order yours today from Disney DVD.
