But that’s not to say it doesn’t have some modern tricks up its sleeve, too. As well as the addition of a contemporary voice cast, this Winnie The Pooh feature is willing to have the characters interact with the very words and letters of the story it’s telling. Furthermore, there’s one sequence which feels really quite removed from what you’d expect of a Pooh movie.
Yet that’s not a bad thing, and it’s hard to shake the feeling that Disney is justifiably proud of this one. Winnie The Pooh has been far from the firm’s most popular films of recent times, but it’s genuinely lovely. It’s inevitably going to find most appeal amongst very young viewers, but even the older members of the audience can enjoy what’s been put together. And they might just end up feeling that they really do still make them like they used to. A real treat. --Jon Foster
