Disney's Winnie the Pooh DVD + Blu-Ray

As you may remember, we were lucky enough to check out Disney's Winnie the Pooh advanced screening this summer. Ever since then, my daughter has been talking non-stop about Pooh and his friends, specifically about Tigger and how he goes, "BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY!!!!!!"

Our favorite part of the movie was a slapstick type of sequence of events where all the characters are frightened by a monster called the "Backson".    As adults, we were able to read the note Christopher Robin mis-spelled, so we were able to laugh at the tongue-in-cheek humor that follows.  The younger crowd of viewers (those who are not yet reading) will be on the edge of their seats, waiting for the "Backson" to appear and fall into the trap Pooh's friends set for him!

She has asked repeatedly to watch it when we are settling in to watch a movie and snuggle.  As of today, she now can watch Winnie the Pooh to her heart's desire! It was officially released today on DVD + Blu-Ray!!!

We absolutely love the silly and heart-warming story about Pooh and his friends and Pooh's incredible love of honey.  The movie is filled with delightful adventure and had Ava and my husband and I giggling throughout!

The DVD and Blu-Ray each have bonus features which provide even more entertainment and fun!

Blu-Ray Features:
Exclusive bonus short “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon” – In this
charming short, Pooh comes up with a daring plan to get a hold of some honey by fooling a
group of bees.

“The Ballad of Nessie” - The animated short film included in the theatrical release is the
heartwarming tale of how Nessie found her new home in the Loch Ness.

“Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too” – A fun and informative behind-the-scenes look at
the film, designed for the whole family. Hosted by John Cleese (narrator of the film), and with
occasional help from Pooh himself, this featurette explores Winnie the Pooh‟s history from his
beginnings as a character in a book, to his continued life in the movies. The filmmakers
reveal how they worked to keep the look of the characters and settings in this movie
consistent with their first appearances on-screen in 1966. Pooh, being a bear of very little
mind, finds much of this confusing, but the Narrator and the filmmakers make it all clear to
Pooh – and you!

Deleted Scenes introduced by directors, Stephen Anderson and Don Hall – 5 deleted scenes
including “The Tummy Song,” “”Rabbit‟s Friends and Relations,” “Original Eeyore Intro,”
“Original Tigger Intro” and “Pooh Searches for a Tail”

Sing-Along with the Movie – Follow the red balloon and changing word colors to seven
song lyrics featured in the film.

Disney Song Selection – “Winnie the Pooh Theme Song,” “The Tummy Song, “A Very
Important Thing To Do,” “The Backson Song,” “It‟s Gonna Be Great,” “Everything is Honey”
and “The Winner Song Finale”
