Winnie the Pooh – Now on Blu-ray and DVD

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

On October 25, 2011, Winnie the Pooh was released on Blu-ray and DVD!  We got to watch this DVD and I’ll tell you a bit about it below.

Now I’ll be honest right up front…I’m a little biased toward Winnie the Pooh.  See the character was named after a black bear at the London Zoo, who was donated by Capt. Coleburn the owner – who had named the bear ‘Winnie’ after his hometown of Winnipeg.  Wowzers!  That happens to be my Image from CherrySweetDealhometown too!  They even have a statue at the Winnipeg Zoo of the Captain and ‘his’ bear Winnie.

Okay now that we have my bias out of the way, I’ll tell you a bit about the Winnie the Pooh DVD.  The movie is actually based on a few of the original A.A. Milne stories featuring the friends of Winnie the Pooh and of course the star himself.  You’ll see stories with all your favorites from the Hundred Acre Woods including: Piglet, Kanga, Eeyore, Owl, Rabbit, and the ever bouncy Tigger.

Your kids will enjoy watching the stories on the TV that generations have loved.  Especially where Eeyore loses his tail and Owl sends the gang on a journey to help save Eeyore and Christopher Robin from the mysterious Backson.

I’ve often been asked why it’s worth buying the Blu-ray version of a DVD, because it is more expensive then the single DVD.  If you watch a lot of DVDs at home, and you don’t already have a Blu-ray player I recommend you invest in one, you will definitely notice both an upgrade in your picture quality and sound quality when watching movies in Blu-ray.  Besides that, Blu-ray discs generally have a lot more Bonus Features on them, which are worth the extra cost of the DVD.

Some of the Blu-ray Bonus Features on the Winnie the Pooh Blu-ray are:

Disney Song Selection – “Winnie the Pooh Theme Song,” “The Tummy Song,” “A Very Important Thing To Do,” “The Backson Song,” “It’s Gonna Be Great,” “Everything is Honey” and “The Winner Song Finale”

“The Ballad of Nessie” – The animated short film included in the theatrical release is the heartwarming tale of how Nessie found her new home in the Loch Ness.

Deleted Scenes introduced by directors, Stephen Anderson and Don Hall – 5 deleted scenes including “The Tummy Song,” Rabbit’s Friends and Relations,” “Original Eeyore Intro,” “Original Tigger Intro” and “Pooh Searches for a Tail”

And there are even more bonus features; Exclusive Bonus Short “Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh: The Balloon”, Winnie the Pooh and His Story Too and Sing-Along with the Movie.

Plus inside the box is a FREE Pin the Tail On Eeyore Game!

Winnie the Pooh is a fantastic movie for the whole family, it’s rated G so it’s safe for even the littlest ears and eyes.
