This "Tigger Movie" is different though. Again and again I found that it moved me to tears, and the story, animation and writing all hit home, almost like they were created by people who actually cared deeply about what they were doing. So far, it's the only one of the modern Pooh films I've seen that captures much of the original Disney/A.A. Milne magic. My son loves it too.
This is actually quite a nice film. The amazing thing about these characters is how flexible they are for so many stories. The plot here revolves around Tigger's family background and his search for his "family tree." The animation, apparently done in Japan, is very fluid and suggestive of the earlier films -- and the domestic artists behind it are among the best in the business, including Floyd Norman and Toby Bluth.
John Fiedler, as Piglet, is the one remaining cast member from the original films, with Jim Cummings voicing Pooh and Tigger and none other than John Hurt taking over the narration from Sebastian Cabot.
It sure is nice to see "Songs by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman" in the credits. This was technically their last film for Disney, though its success surely should have resulted in others. My favorite of their songs is "Round My Family Tree," but they all have the delicate charm of their other Pooh songs. They also collaborated with Kenny Loggins on "Your Heart Will Lead You Home," which got a lot of airplay.
The DVD offers a handful of bonus features -- several games, mostly, plus a storybook version read by the great Corey Burton and a digital copy. But it is particularly good to see two short episodes from the Emmy-winning "New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" series. Each episode relates to the plot of the feature. Wouldn't it be great if the series was packaged season-by-season on DVD? Hmm?
It is rather cute and the songs that go along with the movie are great. My son and I will dance to a couple of them. It is also fun to watch all of the Pooh friends try to dress up like Tigger and "do as Tiggers do." My son loves this movie! Even as an adult I enjoy sitting back and watching this film.
Cute story, a little humor,and kid-friendly... this movie is highly recommended.
The simple fact of the matter is probably that Disney figured they could make more money with a theatrical release (it came out with absolutely no competition for its intended audience). Happily, it's also true that this movie was a step above the usual direct-to-video fare. Most of the animation was uninspired (it's easy to tell there are fewer frames per second than in major Disney theatrical releases), but the scripts and voice acting were actually quite good.
I've been a fan of the Winnie the Pooh stuff for what seems like forever, so it's hard for me NOT to enjoy any of it. But the simple, hearwarming story of Tigger's discovery of himself and how much his friends really care about him just works. Sure, it's a childlike tale, but isn't that the target audience? We're not looking for Citizen Kane when we turn to Winnie the Pooh. We're looking for comfort and support to be who we are. It's a great message for kids, and this movie does a great job of presenting it.
I was a bit trepidatious when I saw that Jim Cummings (the voice of Pooh in all but the original shorts) was taking over for Paul Winchell as the voice of Tigger. Turns out that he does an unbelievable Paul Winchell impression! Very impressive voice acting in this one -- really quite seamless.

Here's the thing. The movie came as promised and my 2 year old loves it. The PROBLEM is that the movie I got has a "Wal-Mart" price tag sticker on it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by WVU06
It lacks a little of the more sketchy charm of the original pooh animation, but not everyone enjoys that sort of thing to begin with. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Regan
