Pooh Video Interviews: Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit & Crew Talk Winnie The Pooh

Recently we had the opportunity to sit down and chat with some of the voice cast and creators of Disney’s new animated feature Winnie The Pooh. Pooh (the bear of very little brain) has reunited with his friends Christopher Robin, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Roo on the big screen for the first time in 35 years.

The new film revives the classic hand-drawn look of the original Pooh films and shorts and incorporates the language of the story as a physical element in the film. They break the fourth wall by actively referencing the fact that they are not only stuffed animals, but characters in a children’s book. They often walk atop paragraphs and between pages and a ladder of words eventually frees them from a er, sticky (but not honeyed) situation.

We had the chance to speak with some of the team of talented artist that brought this genuinely charming and engaging film to life, including: directors Stephen Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and Don Hall, Songwriters Robert Lopez & Kristen Anderson-Lopez (who also voices Kanga in the film) – Jim Cummings, who has voiced Pooh and Tigger for years, and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) who steps in to voice the updated and humorous “fussbudget,” Rabbit.

  1. I remember as a little kid waking up before my parents and popping in Pooh VHS tapes. One of the coolest parts of was in the beginning when the book opened and you got to see Pooh hop across the letters. I remember wishing that I could walk across words like that in real life and would sometimes pretend as such. Glad that they’re bringing that part back.

  2. I nearly cried when i first saw this trailer, it was like a bucket of water was splashed into my eyes, for a moment in time in a long time i was seeing real cartoon! not pixar or manga, real cartoon! and it was new and i thought would anybody apart from me want to sit and watch something like this any more what with toy story and shreak, i can’t wait to see this as sure as eggs is eggs i bet pound to a penny that when them first few bars of the Whinny the Poo song come on and the book opens i will have hairs standing on end on the back of my neck.
