Winnie the Pooh has always been the “rumbly in the tumblyteddy bear that we all know and love.  However, over the years, the way he has been animated has changed immensely.  With technology changing constantly, Winnie the Pooh’s appearance has transformed with the times.

Peter Del Vecho, producer of the newest Pooh bear film due mid-July 2011, says that they “wanted to create a movie for the big screen that had the charm and wit of [the] original shorts” so Winnie-the-Pooh is returning to his old school appearance.

The new film will be based on several of A.A. Milne‘s stories about the friendly honey eating bear including the hunt for a mysterious creature that was mentioned in The House at Pooh Corner.

Another group of fun tidbits: John Cleese of the Monty Python troupe will be the narrator of the film.  Jim Cummings who has been the voice of Pooh and Tigger in the past will be returning for the role.

I’m thrilled that they’re bringing back the gang at the Hundred Acre Wood in a new updated way while bringing back the old school look that we all fell in love with.
