An Americanized Winnie the Pooh Drawing Criticism

Winnie the Pooh stories originated on British soil.  Disney, an American based company, bought the rights to Pooh and has since created several different movies, television shows, and books `based on the original Winnie the Pooh.   Winnie the Pooh books, according to some critics, has now had too much “Americanism”.   The original work, as some see it, should reflect the same dialect and wording of the original writing by author A.A. Milne.    Book publishers of the new Winnie the Pooh say that they are trying to appeal to a wider audience.    The question does remain to be asked if audiences across the globe and those in the United States like the “Americanism” of Winnie the Pooh.  Original fans of Pooh fell in love with the original Pooh.   Will these fans also embrace a more modern Winnie the Pooh?   That is a question that Disney and all those behind Winnie the Pooh have to be asking themselves as they create new products.
