Awww, Pooh...


You just can't keep away from Pooh, can you...

It appears that the new "Winnie the Pooh" is going to be a collection of stories. That is, unless things change. It will actually use footage from the classic. Now, I don't know if this means that it'll keep the original opening or if it means that they'll be introducing new segments alongside old ones ala: "Fantasia 2000" or something in between. I'm curious to see what becomes of this film. I trust Lasseter though. If this was made by the previous Suits I'd be up in arms and very worried. But I'm sure some fans will be concerned by this and turn it into a very blustery day.

Oh bother...

Exactly what I would have done. Just 3 simple stories, with the book pages linking them together. This is good news.

Is there a voice actor out there that can approximate Sebastian Cabot's narration?

Pooh? I just flushed him down the toilet.

:-p

I'm more surprised that there will be footage from the original than worried.

We'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.

One of the biggest complaints about the DTVs was re-use of old Pooh.

Hopefully Lasseter does this right.

I think this is a good sign. It means that the new animation will have to match the old, in style and quality.

I like the idea that they're using the style of the old one, but the part where they're using the footage makes me nervous.

You won't believe how much bad toilet joke I am thinking of right this instant.
