Winnie the Pooh is as Heartwarming as Ever! – Mr. DAPs’ Blu-Ray Review

DAPs Magic Disney News – by Mr. DAPs 

Winnie the Pooh is back for a new adventure with all his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood. After Eeyore loses his tail it appears that Christopher Robin has gone missing. Owl then sends Pooh and the gang on a mission to go rescue Christopher Robin from the Backson.

Picture and Sound:

Winnie the Pooh looks exactly as it should. This is a high compliment as through the years animation techniques have changed and with it the look and feel of movies have changed as well. Winnie the Pooh looks exactly like the Winnie the Pooh I grew up with. The traditional animation is absolutely beautifully done. The sound feels right as well. The music has been updated a bit and some of the voices have changed. With a few of these changes though, this movie has the charm and warmth that any Winnie the Pooh movie should have.

Bonus Features:

The bonus features included with Winnie the Poohseemed quite appropriate for this film. I personally would have enjoyed having more of the nuts and bolts, how to, features included but the general audience for this film will really enjoy what is included.

  • Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too – This is an overview of the origins of Winnie the Pooh from A.A. Milne’s stories. It isn’t too in depth so it should be easy for most ages to watch.
  • Deleted Scenes Introduced by the Directors – Exactly what the title implies, this feature offers five deleted or alternate scenes that didn’t make it into the movie at different levels of production.
  • Bonus Shorts – This was my favorite bonus feature and includes The Ballad of Nessie and Minnie Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The first was included with Winnie the Pooh when it was released in theaters.
  • Disney Song Selection – This is a collection of songs to sing along with. This is great for families with the younger kids. And unless it is a karaoke party, the rest of us will probably gloss oer this feature.
  • Creating the Perfect Winnie the Pooh Nursery – This feature will have even more limited appeal as it is for those who are expecting a little one and are looking to make a nursery that is Winnie the Pooh themed.


Winnie the Pooh is pretty much what you’d expect it to be, a heartwarming film with heartwarming moments and heartwarming characters that you love to love. The characters are endearing as ever and the animation is absolutely beautiful. At 63 minutes, it is a quick movie to watch. I did find myself wishing for a bit more as there was quite the build up and then suddenly it is over. Overall, this is a cute movie that will bring out the child in you. Whether this type of movie can hold up against the more upbeat and intense movies of today probably is still up to debate. However, this is the type of movie that Disney is known for. I do give it a hat tip and suggest that you go out and add this to you Disney library!
