The highly acclaimed film, which is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com, is a completely original film which represents the return to the Hundred Acre Wood by Walt Disney Animation Studios in over three decades. Inspired by five stories by original Pooh creator and author A.A. Milne, Owl sends the whole gang – Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, and Roo – on a wild journey to help Eeyore and save Christopher Robin from the mysterious Backson all the while trying to find a suitable replacement for Eeyore’s missing tail. In the end, it turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some ‘hunny.’

(L-R) Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore©Disney Enterprises, Inc. All rights reserved.Walt Disney Animation Studios has just provided us with four new stills from its upcoming return to the Hundred Acre Wood, in Winnie the Pooh, opening this Friday, July 15. The stills, which include an image from the new clip, have been added to the beginning of our stills gallery below and even provide a look at Eeyore after he’s been Tiggerized.

In the clip, titled ‘Pooh’s Note,’ Pooh arrives at Owl’s house with a note he found at Christopher Robin’s door. Owl, who has just taken the award for finding the ideal replacement tail for Eeyore (unTiggerized), decodes the message for the gang, which appears to spell certain doom for their good friend.
