Scheduled for release on the 15th of July, 2011 across the United States, and on the 15th of April, 2011 across theatres in the the UK, the film’s based on the children’s books Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne and Return to the Hundred Acre Wood by David Benedictus. The film will be the second Winnie-the-Pooh film made by Walt Disney Animation Studios based on the stories of A.A. Milne after the 1977 film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
This film will also be the first film of this type which is not to be a collection of animated shorts like the films which were released before, as many earlier Pooh films were released under DisneyToon Studios, like The Tigger Movie (2000), Piglet’s Big Movie(2003), and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie (2005).
The film will revolve around Pooh himself. However, there will be a sequence with Eevore who loses his tail and his friends try different replacements, there is to be another sequence based on a story from The House at Pooh Corner where Pooh and friends are in search of a creature called “Backson,” which is actually a misspelling of the phrase “Back soon.”
