Winnie the Pooh
(Animated, G, 63 minutes). When the filmmakers of "Winnie the Pooh" were tasked by the Walt Disney Co. with creating a new story about the honey-loving bear two years ago, they had no interest in computer-generating Pooh and his friends. They also wanted no part in projecting Pooh's latest Hundred Acre Wood adventure in three dimensions or upgrading his classic bound storybook to a tablet computer. Instead, directors Stephen Anderson and Don Hall sought to faithfully return Pooh to his hand-drawn origins for a feature film reminiscent of the 1960s' Pooh shorts, while also appealing to kids who've grown up with the action of "Toy Story" and "Cars."
"Winnie the Pooh" will be the first time the Hundred Acre Wood residents of A.A. Milne's beloved books have marched into theaters since 2005's "Pooh's Heffalump Movie."
