'Winnie the Pooh' on Disney Blu-ray and DVD Combo PackAhead of any official announcement, we have learned that the 2011 neo-classic, Winnie the Pooh, will be available to own on Disney Blu-ray and DVD combo pack on October 25, 2011.

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.’

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.

First Look: ‘Winnie the Pooh’ Limited Edition Plush Collection from Disney Store

Limited edition Winnie the Pooh plush from Disney StoreFor his first birthday, Christopher Robin Milne received a stuffed teddy bear from Harrods of London named Edward. The bear, later rechristened Winnie the Pooh — in honor of a real bear at the London Zoo and a real swan named Pooh — was a gift from his father, author A.A. Milne, and was soon joined by a stuffed tiger, donkey, pig and a kangaroo and her joey. With the help of Christopher Robin’s imagination, they inspired a series of stories and were joined by Owl and Rabbit, both entirely A.A. Milne’s creations. Today the stuffed versions of Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet and Kanga reside in the care of the New York Public Library where they are on permanent display to the public.

In the end (horrible pun admittedly intended), Kanga (Kristen Anderson-Lopez) approaches the daunting task as only a mother could.
