Children across the country are already getting anxious about the release of Disney's Winnie The Pooh. Will the new version of the classic children's tale authored by A. A. Milne provide a younger generation with as much inspiration and entertainment as the original Walt Disney classic?
Signs point to yes. One view of the trailer shows that Disney has done a remarkable job at recapturing the aesthetics of the original, from the character voicing, to the traditional style of animation that Pooh fans have come to know and love. It is remarkable how much Jim Cumming's voice-over of Winnie The Pooh sounds just as it did when originally done by the great Sterling Holloway and the representation of Tigger vocal is spot-on, as well. However, all of the character's voices heard on the film trailer sound just like the original movie. TV's own Craig Ferguson makes his fantastic debut as Owl, as well. As before, the movie plays on like the pages of a book - a feature that really connects with fans of the original.
Remakes of classic movies, especially ones that are so near and dear to the harts of millions are almost impossible to pull off. It appears that Disney has done a splendid job in re-creating the atmosphere, fun and adventure of the original Disney classic. The film opens on July 15th, sure to bring the enchanting wonder that is Winnie The Pooh to yet a whole new generation of young children.
