This morning my Twitter feed had something extra exciting in it: a link to view the trailer for Disney’s upcoming Winnie The Pooh. At first I was dubious of this. The last couple movies just haven’t been right. I checked out parts of The Tigger Movie and Piglet’s Big Movie on cable and couldn’t get into them.
This new Winnie the Pooh looks like the old school cartoons I grew up with, ones like Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree as well as the wonderful ABC Saturday morning animated series The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The trailer, which even shows Piglet being blown through the pages of a book, gave me goosebumps. I’m looking forward to seeing this in July 2011.
