Disney brings Winnie the Pooh back to theaters
It’s been nearly 85 years since us fans first got their eyes on the world of Winnie the Pooh. Since that time, and their creation by A. A. Milne, the character and his many friends have filled the Disney Universe with wonder, inspiring dozens of TV specials, a gathering of cinematic adventures, Disney World rides, video games, and more. Now, Disney is bringing the honey-hungry bear back to the big screen with next year’s Winnie the Pooh, rejoining Eeyore, Rabbit, Kanga and Roo, Christopher Robin, Owl, Tigger, Piglet, and the rest. Unlike most animated films of the day, Winnie the Pooh will use traditional cel animation, serving as the 51st full-length animated movie, immediately following Rapunzel in Tangled, the 50th. Release dates are set for July 15th, 2011 in the U.S., and April 15th, 2011 across Europe. Check out the first teaser trailer and let us know if you’re ready to go back to the Hundred Acre Wood!
