It was first announced last year that Disney would be bringing the wonderful, lovable Winnie the Pooh back to the big screen again in an all new animated adventure for the whole family to enjoy. Disney has unveiled two new photos from the new movie, called simply Winnie the Pooh, which you can check out below. The voice cast features veteran Jim Cummings back again to voice the honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh and the bouncy feline Tigger, as he's been doing since 1988. It also includes: Craig Ferguson as the Owl, Tom Kenny as the Rabbit, and Gilbert Gottfried as Marley. Yes, they used classic hand-drawn animation, too!
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood in Winnie the Pooh, the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. In this new movie, Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. As always, it turns out to be a busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some hunny. Inspired by five of the stories from A.A. Milne's books in classic Disney hand-drawn art style, Winnie the Pooh will arrive in theaters everywhere on July 15th, 2011 next summer. Directing is Stephen J. Anderson (Meet the Robinsons) and former story supervisor Don Hall.
