Winnie the Pooh Charms his way to the Big Screen


Featuring the unforgettable charm, noteworthy wit of the most famous bear in the world "Winnie the Pooh" makes a comeback through Walt Disney Animation Studios new animated feature. The new film reunites audiences with the philosophical "bear of very little brain" and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo and Eeyore who has lost his tail.

Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” will be shown soon exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas (Glorietta 4 & Greenbelt 3).

The story takes place in the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh wakes up absolutely famished with no honey. He sets out on his journey, which is ultimately derailed - first by a contest to find Eeyore a new tail. Pooh later finds a note from Christopher Robin that reads: “Gone out. Busy. Back soon.” But then Owl misinterprets the note, proclaiming that the boy has been captured by a creature called a “Backson.” Soon, the whole gang is on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from the imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply hoped to find some honey.

Funnyman John Cleese (“Shrek Forever After,” “A Fish Called Wanda”) serves as the narrator for “Winnie the Pooh.” The voice cast features some returning favorites who’ve voiced their characters before: Jim Cummings (“Gnomeo & Juliet,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Shrek”) lends his voice to Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, and Travis Oates, who’s provided the voice of Piglet for seven years, returns as the voice of Pooh’s nervous little friend.

            The cast also includes Pooh newcomers Bud Luckey (“Toy Story 3”) as the voice of Eeyore, Craig Ferguson (“The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”) as the voice of Owl, and Tom Kenny (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) as the voice of Rabbit. Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who also co-wrote original songs for the film (TV’s “The Wonder Pets,” off-Broadway’s “In Transit”) is the voice of Kanga; Wyatt Hall, the 7-year-old son of Director Don Hall, is the voice of Roo; and Jack Boulter is the voice of Christopher Robin.
            The film is directed by Stephen Anderson (director, “Meet the Robinsons”) and Don Hall (head of story, “The Princess and the Frog”); Peter Del Vecho (“The Princess and the Frog”) produces. “Winnie the Pooh” is executive-produced by John Lasseter. Robert Lopez (Broadway’s “Avenue Q”) and wife Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit”) provide original songs; the original score is by Henry Jackman (“Kick-Ass,” “Monsters vs. Aliens”).


            Actress/musician/singer/songwriter Zooey Deschanel (indie folk band She & Him) provides the vocals for a special rendition of the beloved “Winnie the Pooh” theme song as well as additional songs from the film, including the end-credit song, “So Long,” which she wrote.
