Winnie the Pooh
Director: Stephen Anderson, Don Hall
Pooh Bear’s latest big-screen adventure, simply titled Winnie the Pooh, goes back to the source for its inspiration, weaving together six chapters of Milne’s stories to form one satisfying whole.
Directors Stephen Anderson and Don Hall have wisely updated the story — the pace is snappier than the classic 1960’s cartoons — but kept the elements that have made Pooh an indispensable character for the under-10 crowd. The gentle humour is in place, along with the beautiful watercolour backgrounds and the voices so connected to the series (they’re done by different people now, but are true to the style established by Walt Disney himself).
