Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios UK, we have two new clips and a new featurette for Winnie the Pooh (July 15, 2011).

In the first clip, titled ‘Eeyore’s New Tael,’ Narrator John Cleese introduces us to just some of the many items the gang employs to help replace Eeyore’s (Bud Luckey) missing tail. In the end (horrible pun admittedly intended), Kanga (Kristen Anderson-Lopez) approaches the daunting task as only a mother could.

'Winnie the Pooh' Original Motion Picture SoundtrackIn anticipation of the film and soundtrack’s release later this month, Walt Disney Studios France is streaming the entire original motion picture soundtrack for Winnie the Pooh.

This is your first opportunity to hear the new take on the classic opening theme by Zooey Deschanel, which — as we mentioned yesterday — includes an awkward introduction of Tigger, albeit not nearly as awkward as omitting him completely as the original 1977 film, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh had done. Yesterday we brought you the film’s opening animated sequence courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Germany.
