Disney is known for their infamous vault of films. For those that have been living in a vault themselves and do not know what it is, it’s where they store all their movies and periodically re-release them in various formats. This brilliant tradition has made Disney films not only maintain their classic feel and nature, but also keeps from watering down the market. These Blu-ray releases sport high definition with restored picture and sound, as well as numerous special features. The latest getting the treatment is the 1977 classic film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
If for some reason you have never visited Hundred Acre Wood, the film tells a series of shorts stories of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Eeyopre and the rest of their loveable friends and the adventures they get into together. The shorts in this film were originally stand-alone short films that they later edited together with wrap around footage to create this beloved film. The classic animation with vibrant colors looks amazing in high definition really stepping up the overall quality of this classic film. These are timeless characters that hold up today with stories that are both entertaining yet still have an important message that isn’t forced into your face, but taught none the less. Sometimes Winnie the Pooh is considered geared towards the smaller kids, but this world of characters works for all ages with this film being proof that these classic tales hold up and entertain no matter how old you are.
This special edition Blu-ray release not only includes a high-def transfer of the film but also numerous featurettes including Pooh Play Along, 5 Mini-Adventures of Winnie the Pooh shorts and Disney Intermission where the film comes to life while paused for even more entertainment. No Winnie the Pooh collection will be complete without the one that started all so be sure to grab The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh when it hits Blu-ray on August 27th.
