Trivia

Richard M. Sherman has been confirmed to write three original songs for the film after having done so with his late brother Robert B. Sherman in many of the preceding Disney's Winnie the Pooh feature films, including The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977), The Tigger Movie (2000), and also most of the theatrical shorts and one direct-to-video Winnie the Pooh: Seasons of Giving (1999). It has been confirmed that the title song "Winnie The Pooh" from The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977) will be used in this film and so will the other two original songs "Up, Down, Touch the Ground" and "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers".

Goofs

Christopher Robin falls into the Heffalump trap, which is shown to be a deep pit that he fails to climb out of. Some time later, after it has rained heavily, he awakens to find that the pit has filled with water and he is floating on the top. Then he's able to climb out. Shortly after this he is on the "Poohsticks" bridge, and is partially dry when really he should have stayed soaking wet. See more »

Quotes

Christopher Robin: [from trailer] The tree I remember was in the countryside, not here in London!
[kicks a supposed opening in the tree's trunk]
Christopher Robin: There's no opening!
Winnie the Pooh: I suppose it's where it needs to be.
Christopher Robin: That's a silly explanation.
Winnie the Pooh: Why, thank you.

Not The Movie You'd Expect: Better!
14 August 2018 | by spiritof67See all my reviews

I usually don't read other reviews of films I review. After all, I have 60+ years of heavy moviegoing as my resource..but tastes do vary. In this case, I understand that if you're needing jumpcuts, cookie-cutter plots, easy places to text or other things, this isn't your movie. As well, if you missed the memo about how this WASN'T a sequel to any other movie, this isn't your movie either.

It is, though, one of the finest movies I have ever seen of any genre, and one of the most emotionally moving. For this reason I would note for parents that your parenting skills will be tested here; if your kids have no attention span, are fidgety, have iphone addiction, they won't like this movie. But it most assuredly is a movie for all ages, just not for all mentalities. There are actual lessons here for children, real ones; lessons for adults, important ones; lessons for employers; and most of all, lessons to the viewer.

I would recommend that those interested see this movie quickly, since L. Ron Hubbard's man's success in the opening week has cut this film's run short. To not see the magnificent cinematography and vistas (some CGI but you cannot tell) in their proper setting. It emphatically is not a TV or Smartphone movie.

On to the posse: Tigger, Kanga and Roo, Owl, Eeyore, Rabbit, Piglet and Pooh all get good screen time, have excellent character showings and are wonderfully voiced. As long as you bear in mind (no pun) the real characters' personalities, which are all on display here, they all ring true. Ewan McGregor gives what might be his career performance, and newcomer Bronte Carmichael is radiant, as is Hayley Atwell. But this is Ewan, Bronte and Pooh's movie, and they do it justice. Just a wonderful film. Sorry if it's "too slow" for some tastes.
