Raileigh is so excited that Winnie the Pooh is coming to theaters in a few short weeks. Our library just received a beautiful new collection of Pooh books. We have been reading and enjoying them in preparation for the upcoming release of the new Winnie the Pooh movie.
I think this release has been heavily overshadowed by the debut of Cars 2. So, in case you haven’t heard all about Winnie the Pooh, let me take a few moments to tell you about it.

Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original short films, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of those days where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. 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 honey. Inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” hits theaters in the U.S. on July 15, 2011.
I’d love to know– are you planning to see Winnie the Pooh when it hits theaters July 15? We are definitely looking forward to this fun summer movie!
Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. We are excited about seeing Winnie the Pooh, and I wanted to share some fun, movie-related things with you!
