Walt Disney Animation Studios has debuted the first official trailer for its 2011 release, Winnie the Pooh. In the film, the first big-screen Pooh adventure in more than 35 years from Walt Disney Animation Studios who at last returns to the Hundred Acre Wood. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.” Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some hunny. Inspired by five stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style.
Winnie the Pooh stars the voice talents of Jim Cummings (Pooh/Tigger), Craig Ferguson (Owl), Tom Kenny, Travis Oates, Bud Luckey (Eeyore), is directed by Stephen J. Anderson and Don Hall and features all new music composed by Henry Jackman with lyrics by Robert and Kristen Lopez along with a whole new take on the classic theme by Zooey Deschanel. It will be released in theaters nationwide on July 15, 2011.
