Winnie the Pooh: Walt Disney Animation brings back the honey-loving bear, Winnie the Pooh, along with his friends Piglet, Roo, Eeyore and, of course, Tigger for more adventures with Christopher Robin in the Hundred Acre Wood. Disney hopes that they can find a new audience for the franchise that was started back in the 1960’s. Music, as always, will be an important part of the film, with 3 songs written and performed by Zooey Deschanel. Here’s hoping Pooh and the gang can find Eeyore’s tail and win the pot of honey.
