In the classic tradition of Disney's animated feature films, the first Winnie The Pooh theatrical feature in 23 years weaves magical storytelling, charming characters, and memorable songs into an enchanting tale of adventu... more »re and heart. As it happens, the whole gang is busy preparing a suitably gloomy winter home for Eeyore. When everything they do seems to get undone by Tigger's exuberant bouncing, Rabbit suggests Tigger go outside and find other tiggers to bounce with -- a notion Tigger finds ridiculous because after all, he's "the onliest one!" Or is he? And so begins Tigger's amazing journey to find his family. This whimsical and touching film will bounce right into your heart -- and feet.« less
This is a sad movie.
But really good because all Winnie The Pooh MOVIES end with a happy ending.
There is a lesson learned usally with Winnie the Pooh.
This one was about family!!

A standout children's DVD

"Sitting on the couch with my 2 year old son, I've become something of a connoisseur of children's movies at this point. To be blunt, most of the modern "Pooh" films from Disney are pretty much garbage. The Piglet and Roo movies are especially painful, and got tossed out after about 1/2 a viewing each. In both of those, the characters are just being yanked and shoved through the motions by a giant, souless marketing machine that is determined to squeeze yet more cash out of them, even if it has to kill them in the process.This "Tigger Movie" is different though. Again and again I found that it moved me to tears, and the story, animation and writing all hit home, almost like they were created by people who actually cared deeply about what they were doing. So far, it's the only one of the modern Pooh films I've seen that captures much of the original Disney/A.A. Milne magic. My son loves it too."
A notch above DTV

"When I first heard this movie was coming out, my main question was why a theatrical release instead of direct-to-video? Many Disney sequels have gone that route, including the last feature-length Winnie the Pooh film, The Search for Christopher Robin.The simple fact of the matter is probably that Disney figured they could make more money with a theatrical release (it came out with absolutely no competition for its intended audience). Happily, it's also true that this movie was a step above the usual direct-to-video fare. Most of the animation was uninspired (it's easy to tell there are fewer frames per second than in major Disney theatrical releases), but the scripts and voice acting were actually quite good.I've been a fan of the Winnie the Pooh stuff for what seems like forever, so it's hard for me NOT to enjoy any of it. But the simple, hearwarming story of Tigger's discovery of himself and how much his friends really care about him just works. Sure, it's a childlike tale, but isn't that the target audience? We're not looking for Citizen Kane when we turn to Winnie the Pooh. We're looking for comfort and support to be who we are. It's a great message for kids, and this movie does a great job of presenting it.I was a bit trepidatious when I saw that Jim Cummings (the voice of Pooh in all but the original shorts) was taking over for Paul Winchell as the voice of Tigger. Turns out that he does an unbelievable Paul Winchell impression! Very impressive voice acting in this one -- really quite seamless."

"I like this movie mostly because I have no problems with my son watching it, as with all Winnie the Pooh movies. It is a Pooh movie that doesn't have the five minute stories but one large story. In this movie, Rabbit suggests to Tigger to go find other Tiggers to bounce with and so Tigger is off to find his family tree, which must be the greatest tree in the hundred acre woods.It is rather cute and the songs that go along with the movie are great. My son and I will dance to a couple of them. It is also fun to watch all of the Pooh friends try to dress up like Tigger and "do as Tiggers do." My son loves this movie! Even as an adult I enjoy sitting back and watching this film.Cute story, a little humor,and kid-friendly... this movie is highly recommended."

"This movie is a must-have for ANY Disney collection! It is, in a word, ADORABLE! Made in the "old-syle" Winnie The Pooh, this new release does NOT disappoint! My husband and I found it incredibly entertaining; never boring, and of course, our five year old daughter is just crazy about it! In the movie, Bouncy Trouncy Tigger, tired of being the "only one" I guess, sets out to discover his "family tree." In the end, though, he discovers who is REAL family is, and has been, all along. Very cute, very watchable, really funny at times, and just an all-around wonderful movie to own for the entire family! My opinion is, if you haven't seen the Tigger Movie yet, your family is REALLY missing out on a good one! TTFN!"
