The new WINNIE THE POOH poster is fetishistically pooh-tacular!

Published at: Feb. 25, 2011, 12:45 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here...

I can't wait to see the new WINNIE THE POOH movie.   The trailers and animation just looks so damn good, and it seems like they're doing it right.   Another good sign, which doesn't necessarily mean anything about the film itself, but is just a good poster design...  well, it's the new poster:

    by Jaster

    My son would love this movie. Heck I might like it too. I remember thinking Tigger and Eyore were awesome when I was a kid. But what I REALLY want is a Mercer Mayor Little Monsters movie. I think there might be some short TV special somewhere. My favorite book as a kid was One Monster After Another by Mercer Mayer. I'd love to get it for my son but it's out of print and you have to trade a kidney to get one.

    so Harry has a fetish for pooh?

    by Stifler's Mom

    Seriously, Harry, why does everything have to be sexualized? I'm a huge fan of sex, but it seems impossible for you to like a movie without describing actual physical stimulation.

    I am Winnie The Pooh

    by Spandau Belly

    I've heard many people say that every person can be described as a Winnie The Pooh character, but I'm the only person I know who identifies the most with Winnie. I eat, I nap, I stroll along at a leisurely pace, am generally upbeat and everything always kinda works out for me.

    My only real issue is Owl's voice

    by Kamaji

    After hearing Owl's voice being one way since the first Disney/Pooh collaborations, it sounded almost like someone had done their own voice-over. Though I do like the way they are trying to make it recapture the way the older shorts were. I was a fan of "The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh," which had some great storylines that were nice and heartfelt. I'd recommend (if you can find them on Youtube), "Find Her, Keep Her," and "Donkey for a Day." I remember watching these with my younger sisters, and even though I was past the age of 11 or 12, there was something charming about those shorts.

  • Feb. 25, 2011, 1:53 p.m. CST

    by RentonRiggs

    That's Craig Fergison as Owl. I think he's the only "celeb" voice in the movie. Just sayin' i think he's funny guy, maybe it'll be good?

    by Jaster

    That book is just too freaking awesome and I see (and have bought) so many books for him that are just crap by comparison. One Monstar After Another completely captured my attention because of the really inventive creature designs and darkly beautiful artwork. Somehow Mayer makes these creatures dangerous yet so appealing. The interesting Rube Goldberg-style momentum of the letter that is admittedly a thin storyline fires the imagination of a youngster wondering "what's out there?". There are some things I simply must share with my son and this book is one of them.

    Happy for this...

    by bubcus

    After being subjected to baysplosions, skaky cam, fast cuts, and high budget mayhem, it's going to be nice to get back down to basics with a calm, relaxing movie that takes me back to my early childhood. It'll be like hopping back to early 80s when my mother took me to the local community hall where they were showing films like Fox and the Hound, Bed-knobs and Broomsticks, and Robin Hood. I can't say I've been a Winnie the Pooh fan but I appreciate him and his entourage. To this day I sign off MSN with TTFN (ta ta for now) courtesy of Tigger. This is one of the movies on my absolute must-watch list for this year. Even if I have to be surrounded by little children a fraction of my age, I'm going to savor this and enjoy it just like the food critic at the end of Ratatouille. Thank you Disney for bringing back this glimmer of magic for us to savor one more time.

    nice trailer

    by oisin5199

    I liked that there was style to it, without some annoying Disney announcer saying 'get ready' or some other cheesy typical thing. Gotta say, that no matter what, seeing Pooh and pals in action is never going to be a dry-eyed situation for me. One of my favorite things as a child in the early 70s and one of my favorite things to share with my daughter. d.vader, you're right. When I read my daughter the Pooh books, I could barely get through that ending without blubbering myself. Very embarrassing. There's just something about the simplicity of that life in the 100 Acre Wood, and leaving it is like leaving that childhood behind, with this incredible sense that you've lost something precious that you can never regain. I'll be taking my daughter to this (as a break between Captain America and Harry Potter - which I won't be taking her to). And I better bring the tissues.

  • Feb. 25, 2011, 5:20 p.m. CST

    by Gozu

    Since it's "Pooh" I was thinking more along the lines of diarrhea. That or Pooh's stomach. Either way, a design that immediately makes you think of piss is not by most definitions "good."

    Pooh needs to be cutting edge, state of the art technology. You can't start a franchise with this old fashioned stuff. Most theaters aren't even equipped for 2D animation anymore.

  • Feb. 25, 2011, 6:16 p.m. CST

    but a rap song

    by cylon_conspiracy

    might at least make it relevant. Definitely need a few scenes with Pooh wearing a backwards baseball cap and sunglasses. Otherwise, this is just my daddy's Winnie the Pooh. So I'm not sure why they didn't just take the safe route of having Pooh and friends wind up on the mean streets of NYC, encountering culture shock and hip hop music during their adventures.

    Ugh... No, I was right the first time. 1966.

    by Teddy Artery

    My apologies.

  • was specifically designed for the ignorant tool parade that has (for most part--apologies to the respectful) populated this talk-back. Apparently, the word "hunny" written on the floating *honey* pot, combined with Winnie the Pooh's legendary (if your knowledge of legend goes beyond the movie "Legend" and half-baked, Joseph Campbell/Star Wars nonsense) love of *honey* was not enough to indicate that the golden liquid through which Pooh and the gang paddle is, in fact, honey and not urine. Get your head out of your German porn collection for two seconds and show some respect. Of course, I know that these are just knee-jerk attempts at humour, but for Christ's sake, how depressing. And so wrong. The Winnie the Pooh stories are truly the finest of children's literature, not only because of their pure entertainment factor, but because they were written to pull children up, not patronize them. (Strikes me that the "lookit,-they's-paddlin'-in-piss!" crowd probably didn't have these books read to them by a thoughtful parent on a cold Saturday night.) The language was that of an intelligent adult speaking to children in a way they could relate to, not in easy kiddie-speak. The sentences were often complex, the words sometimes beyond the average child's lexicon. Wonder of wonders, it's a good thing if a child intuitively learns that a sentence can have an appositional phrase, or two main clauses as well as a subordinate clause. Or, heaven forbid, hear a word they don't know that has more than three syllables. I'm not sure why this all bothered me so much since talkbacks are never short on ignorant, boorish crudity, but after reading the headline and seeing that great visual and thinking about how nice it was that another generation might experience the characters presented in a traditional way--then, piss, piss, poo, pee, urine, and more piss. I'm not sure I've ever seen a more apt juxtaposition of the sublime and the ridiculous. I guess these are the same cretins who jump obits to say, "but he only appeared on one episode of Buffy, so he can Rot in Hell!" Anyway, I'll have to get out my vinyl soundtrack to the original movie. Hearing the immortal line "mind over matter, can make a Pooh less fatter" will cheer me. Time for something sweet.

    To J_miggidy re: Bud Luckey

    by DiscoGodfather

    Bud Luckey is a long-tenured Disney/Pixar animator. He's been with the company for something like 30+ years. In addition to directing/creating/voicing the excellent Pixar short "Boundin'" (on "The Incredibles" DVD), he has also provided the voices of Mr. Incredible's boss and Chuckles the Clown in "Toy Story 3". Not a bad choice I suppose, but no Peter Cullen. At least they brought back Jim Cummings as Pooh. No one else should be allowed to voice Pooh as long as Jim Cummings is alive.
