The Summer Movie Winnie the Pooh Coming to DVD this Month

Winnie the Pooh hit theaters this earlier this year in the United States and worldwide. Although it was praised by movie critics, tickets sales left a little to be desired. Now the movie that some may have missed in the theaters is coming to DVD, Blu-ray combo pack and movie download on October 25th. You can expect to see special shorts like “The Ballad of Nessie” and “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon.”

Film Synopsis

Disney returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, 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. Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

Winnie the Pooh Movie Includes a Short of Nessie

A short being shown with the new Winnie the Pooh movie features Nessie.  Nessie is the mythical Loch Ness monster that has been a source of legends for centuries.   Legend says that there is a huge creature that lives in the Loch Ness located in the Scottish Highlands.  In Scotland loch is another name for lake.    

The Ballad of Nessie will play before the actual movie Winnie the Pooh is played on the movie screen.  

Winnie the Pooh movie has already been released in the United Kingdom, Italy, and France.  The release for the movie Winnie the Pooh is set for July 15, 2011 in the United States.  The hand-drawn animated film will include our favorite friends from the Hundred Acre Wood: Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Owl,Rabbit,  and Christopher Robin.
