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.

That is pretty neat that they're using traditional animation for this.

Looks pretty & cheers for not killing off the original voice actors but theres no way I'll ever allocate 1.25 hours of my life to watch this

I was a big Pooh fan as a little kid so I'm really glad they decided to go back to the original Pooh for this. The CG Pooh show out now is total crap. Read my thoughts here

Awesome, I`ll be the first in line here when it comes out. Always loved Winnie the Pooh or Nalle puh as he is called here. A bit to old to go by myself to this so i`ll have to bring someone with me

Thank god they'll stick with the hand-drawn animation. Winnie Pooh would lose a lot, if not all it's charm, if it had this polished CGI look. This is gonna be so adorable! *smooches Tigger furiously*
