"Synopsis: Christopher Robin is heading to school and tries to tell Pooh about it the day before he starts, but not wanting to ruin their day together, he decides not to. Instead, he writes a letter to Pooh, mentioning how he has to go to school and tells Pooh not to worry about him and attaches it to a pot of honey in front of Pooh's home. The next day, Pooh gets up and finds the jar of honey but not looking at the letter, he mistakenly pours honey all over it. He decides to find Christopher Robin to share his honey, but cannot find him. Soon, all the friends of the hundred acre wood get together, and Owl being the only one with somewhat adequate reading skills, wrongly reads the letter as Christopher Robin going to "Skull" and that he needs help from his friends! Soon, the group decides to go on a journey to "The Great Unknown", where they think they will find Christopher Robin in the eye of the skull.

Review: I don't know where there are so many negative reviews regarding this movie. I thought this movie was great! As someone who grew up watching the cartoon series during the 80s-90s, I thought this was a great movie adaptation that adults as well as children would enjoy. Sure, there are some scary parts to it, but without the dilemma the characters are in, they wouldn't realize how strong, brave or smart they are. And the movie is not entirely sad; there are some funny parts to it, like when Piglet and Pooh are caught by the butterflies and they end up falling on Rabbit. If I remember correctly, even the cartoon series had some very emotional episodes to it like "Find her, keep her" and "the Wishing Bear", so I don't know why people thought this movie would be just fun and silly throughout. The background music is wonderful and adds well to the movie, with memorable songs such as "Wherever you are".

I do agree that the ending is a little bit of a letdown because they build up the story in such a way that you feel that Christopher Robin really needs to be saved from the skull. Still, the ending did make sense, and overall I enjoyed it.

The "Special Edition" DVD also contains some bonus features such as a Game called "Pooh and friends", a behind the scenes look at the music called "Pooh's Symphony" and a bonus classic episode "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day", as well as sneak peeks to other Disney DVD releases.

Overall, I think that if you are a fan of the series, and you don't mind a little emotional drama thrown into it, you will enjoy "Pooh's Grand Adventure".
