Check out this clip for the lovingly hand-drawn animated feature Winnie the Pooh from Disney. The anthropomorphic bear created by A. A. Milne is back to his silly old bear roots and we couldn’t be more excited.
Burny Mattinson is the supervising story artist for the new Winnie The Pooh movie, which harks back to the much earlier Pooh cartoons from the 1960s and 70s. Rumor has it he’s also in talks to make a new Mickey feature as well.
The film will be the second Winnie the Pooh feature made by Walt Disney to be based on the stories of Milne, following the 1977 film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. And it won’t be a collection of animated shorts, but rather a full-length story.
Winnie the Pooh hits theaters this July. Check out this clip:
Here is the synopsis:
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh,” the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.” Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some hunny. Inspired by five stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” is coming to Irish cinemas on April 15th 2011.
