The movie ‘
Winnie the Pooh’ draws inspiration from three stories by A.A Milne. Jin Cummings has given the voice for Winnie. Directors and designers of the screenplay, Don and Anderson, have put plenty of life into the animation characters that are beautifully naive. Plot: The plot revolves around the Hundred Acre Wood with animals and birds in it. Donkey Eeyore, with voice over by
Bud Luckey, loses his tail in injury. The inmates begin a contest to find out who could help the donkey get a tail. The winner would get a honey pot in return. Amidst all the chaos, Owl inadvertently spreads the rumor that
Christopher Robin has been kidnapped and sends a gang after a non-existent prankster. There is but a land filled with delights, and Pooh happens to find this peaceful abode, and ever since the finding, everybody lives happily. There is that perennial charm in every one of the
Walt Disney animations, and animation flick ‘Winnie the Pooh’ has no dearth for luster. The movie has drawn repeat audiences to the theater. A rabbit, a tiger named Tigger, an owl named Owl, a donkey, and Kangaroo appear in the movie.
In the last decade, Walt Disney Studios came up with useless animation flicks that did not please the audience. Those movies drew inspiration from the beautiful stories by A.A Milne but lacked the vital spirit. Also, those movies did not inherit any of the features of book ‘The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh’. But the latest animation flick by Walt Disney wins the heart of audiences with its innocent beauty. There is no strategy about the movie, and that makes the movie more appealing.
Verdict: The story of Winnie the Pooh by A.A Milne remains in the consciousness of even the present day youth, and the movie based on the story by Milne does not betray expectations.
