Exclusive: Winnie the Pooh Directors Talk Updating a Classic

by at . Comments

Winnie the Pooh is one of those characters so ingrained in a child's imagination, it's hard to imagine anything about the beloved cartoon changing.  But that's just what Disney has done with its brand new feature length movie.  It's the first time classic Pooh has ever been turned into a feature length film - up until now, the stories have consisted of short films, sometimes amalgamated to create longer film, but still shorts nonetheless.

Greetings, I have just visited your blog, and I have jenoyed it very much. What a cool site! I love reading about your life, and I find your writing both engaging and charming. A propos your most recent post,isn't it funny how kids just all of a sudden decide they are ready to do something new? And so it goes. Your post made me smile. My grandfather Gaetano Crocetti was born in Abruzzo, so I love to find sites that help me learn more about it. Thanks for the terrific blog. I'll be back! All the best to you and yours.Mary Reply:July 1st, 2011 at 3:12 pmHi Adri! Thanks for stopping by. Where was your grandfather born?

I don't mind messages if they are subtle and are part of the story. I think their heavy handed mismanagement in Cars 2 is leading to its decline. I don't need to be sledgehammered into agreeing "green is good" and accept your friends reguardless of what they do. My children are grown but I'm looking forward to seeing Winnie the Pooh anyway.
