The Evolution of Winnie the Pooh, from AA Milne to ‘Christopher Robin’ (Photos)
Not every movie can play on the nostalgia factor for every generation, but no matter how old you are, there’s a good chance that you grew up with Winnie the Pooh in some form. The character created by A.A. Milne has endured for over 90 years as a beloved figure of children’s literature and television. And in that time, that silly old bear has been through a lot. Here, we look at the history of Pooh Bear across his many books and cartoons, all the way up to the live action “Christopher Robin.”

The first Winnie the Pooh story written by Alan Alexander Milne first appeared in the London Evening News in 1925 on Christmas Eve. The story, “The Wrong Sort of Bees,” would be the first chapter in the first volume of stories, “Winnie-the-Pooh,” published on October 14, 1926. Milne named the boy in the story after his son, Christopher Robin Milne,

Dick Van Dyke, LeAnn Rimes Salute Sherman Bros. — Writers of ‘It’s a Small World,’ ‘Winnie the Pooh’ —  for Classic Film Songs
Everyone who left the Samuel Goldwyn Theater Wednesday night was humming. It might have been “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “It’s a Small World” or any of a dozen other tunes written over the past 50 years by Richard M. Sherman and his late brother Robert B. Sherman, but they were humming something.

The Motion Picture Academy’s two-and-a-half-hour salute to the songwriters, billed as “The Sherman Brothers: A Hollywood Songbook,” may have been the most joyous celebration in that theater in recent memory. Multiple standing ovations and a warm, infectious feeling of Disney-fueled happiness were the order of the evening.

The Shermans — Dick, who just turned 90, and his brother Bob, who died in 2012 — penned some of the most memorable movie songs in history, many of them for Walt Disney. As Dick Van Dyke, reminiscing about being on the set of “Mary Poppins,” put it, “there was

Disney's Christopher Robin Trailer Welcomes Back Winnie the Pooh

Disney has released the first trailer for Christopher Robin, the upcoming live-action take on Winnie the Pooh. The honey-loving bear and his friends have been a beloved fixture of the Disney brand for a very long time, but this is truly going to be a different take on the world that Pooh and his pals inhabit. Not only are we going to see Pooh and his adult friend all grown up, but this is a live-action take on the material, which will be a new thing for moviegoers. Now, we have our first taste of what this is going to look like.

Disney's Christopher Robin, which is described as a heartwarming live-action adventure, centers on the man that the movie is named after. That man, however, was once the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and lovable animals. Unfortunately,

‘Blood Punch’ DVD Review

Stars: Milo Cawthorne, Olivia Tennet, Ari Boyland, Adelaide Kane, Cohen Holloway, Fleur Saville, Mike Ginn, Amanda Reed | Written by Eddie Guzelian | Directed by Madellaine Paxson

No doubt picked up for UK release following the hype surrounding actor Milo Cawthorne’s other horror flick, Deathgasm, Blood Punch is a Groundhog Day style horror that tells the story of Milton (Cawthorne), a brilliant chemistry student who breaks out of court-mandated drug rehab with a mysterious bad girl, Skyler (Tennet). Looking to recruit a cook for a one-day drug score, she lures him to an isolated cabin with her psychotic and trigger-happy boyfriend Russell (Boyland). Russell reveals that he plans to murder Milton as soon as he is finished cooking the drugs, and their simple love triangle quickly descends into a mind-blowing supernatural cycle of carnage and mayhem with no end… and no escape.

No doubt released in time to cash in on the hype surrounding actor Milo Cawthorne’s other recent horror flick, Deathgasm, Blood Punch is a Groundhog Day style horror that tells the story of Milton (Cawthorne), a brilliant chemistry student who breaks out of court-mandated drug rehab with a mysterious bad girl, Skyler (Tennet).

Blood Punch | Review

Blood of Your Blood: Paxson’s Comedy Horror Debut Lacks Bite

Unspooling with all the finesse of a drunken yet trenchant teenager’s expletive laden ranting at an underwhelmingly attended frat party, Madellaine Paxson’s directorial debut, the indie horror comedy Blood Punch, fails to satisfy even as it casts a wide net of genre blending.

Paxson, previously a writer of children’s television fare, directs from Eddie Guzelian’s (The Tigger Movie, 2000) screenplay, but everyone seems oblivious to how adults act and sound, whether or not in the confines of a sometimes ludicrous scenario. Since premiering in 2013 at the Austin Film Festival, the title has picked up its fair share of champions, with several sources praising the film’s wit and originality. Unfortunately, despite its ambitious twists and turns, these inklings of authenticity can be traced to notable elements from a slew of previous titles, and there’s little

Blood Punch Review

What happens when two children’s entertainment scribes (boasting credits such as The Tigger Movie, The Penguins Of Madagascar, Peter Rabbit, and Kim Possible) collaborate on their first feature film? Obviously you get a kid friendly movie titled Blood Punch, filled with death, guts, murder, betrayal – wait, what? You heard right. Director Madellaine Paxson and writer Eddie Guzelian are ditching all that warm and fuzzy bullshit to bring you their own twisted fairy tale about three rowdy criminals forced to repeat the same deadly day over and over again. It’s like kind of like Groundhog Day – a vile, wicked, royally f#cked up Groundhog Day your mum certainly wouldn’t approve of.

It all starts when Milton (Milo Cawthorne), a shy chemistry wiz, meets Skyler (Olivia Tennet), a criminal looking for the best meth cook she can find. After meeting in Milton’s rehab clinic (where else would you find the best junkies?

Disney Are Planning To Make A Live-Action Winnie The Pooh Movie

As you may be aware, Walt Disney Pictures are currently in the middle of remaking all of their classic animated movies into up-to-date live-action fares with the likes of Alice In Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty (via Maleficent) and Cinderella already out there, with a planned Beauty At The Beast, Mulan and The Jungle Book all lined up for the next couple of years. Now it seems that the studio is also turning its hand to another one of its properties; Winnie The Pooh.

Sources say that the Mouse House will be adapting the A.A. Milne books into a new feature film with filmmaker Alex Ross Perry, who wrote and directed the Sundance indie Listen Up Phillip with Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss, directing.

The word is that the new version will focus on Christopher Robin as an adult who is summoned back to Hundred Acre Wood to frolic with his animal

Top Five Tigers in Film

Simon Columb celebrates International Tiger Day with the top five tigers in film…

Today is International Tiger Day! Can you believe it! It has been a whole year since you brought a tiger to tea and fed it sandwiches (“not one sandwich, he took all the sandwiches on the plate…”), buns and biscuits.

So, to celebrate here on Flickering Myth we have scoured the high hills for the tigers, lions, jaguars and leopards in cinema and presented them here for you to reminisce upon. Such happy times with these wild cats …

Granted, Winnie the Pooh has had a few movies. Piglet, in 2003, had a film also in Piglet’s Big Movie. But this Tigger fella seemed to be all the rage back in 2000. Life of Pi may star a tiger, but at least Tigger had a whole movie named after him. One of the favourite A.A. Milne characters,

2 Jungle Book Redos Shaping Up Differently

  • kidspickflicks
Update: The two Jungle Book movies in the works are shaping up to be quite different. Jon Favreau, the director behind movies like Iron Man, Elf and Zathura, is directing the Disney live-action version. Now, Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu is in talks to direct the other one from Warner Brothers - he's the guy behind really heavy, artsy movies like Babel. His next movie is called Birdman starring Emma Stone and Michael Keaton. It looks like these dueling live-action Jungle Books will be as similar as 2012's Mirror, Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman.

June 20, 2012 -  A second remake of The Jungle Book is now in the works, this one will be in 3D animation. Madagascar screenwriter Billy Frolick will adapt Rudyard Kipling's classic book about a boy adopted by jungle animals. Jun Falkenstein, director of The Tigger Movie, will co-direct with Kevin Johnson, whose credits include Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

Winnie the Pooh's "Many Adventures" Are the Perfect Introduction for a New Generation of Kids

Growing up with classic Winnie the Pooh cartoons, 2011’s return to that classic take on Pooh Bear was a nostalgic whirlwind I didn’t think Disney was capable of when it came to cartoons of the classic A.A. Milne character. I’d come to accept The Tigger Movie as the new unfortunate standard for Winnie the Pooh movies, and when you compare it to a classic like The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, you can truly understand just how low the bar had fallen in an attempt to sell more toys. Like the 2011 relaunch, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh fully embraces the storybook nature of Pooh’s source material and works it into the movie in often very clever ways. Watching it 35 years later, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh remains the animated epitome of the character.

Disney 53 Double Feature Part II: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

As we march bravely on through 2013, Thn will take a nostalgic yet critical look at the 53 Walt Disney Animated Classics, from Snow White to Wreck-it Ralph, through the obscurity of Fun And Fancy Free to the second Golden Age of Beauty And The Beast. These are the films the Walt Disney company are most proud of, the ones that hold a special place in our hearts, the ones that still cost a fortune to buy on DVD. This time, we’re off to the Hundred Acre Wood with The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh.

1977/ 74 minutes

Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman, John Lounsbery

When Walt Disney first had the idea of adapting A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories in 1961, he came to realise audiences in the United States weren’t as familiar with the stories as those in the UK and Europe. So, instead of making one feature length film, Disney made

Blu Review: The Tigger Movie

  • Cinelinx
I've never been a big Winnie the Pooh fan. As a child who grew up in a household full of sic-fi nerds, the 1,000 Acre Woods really didn't hold any fascination for me. I was more interested in a future world where fully dressed apes spoke to each other and tortured humans the same way they had been.

Who wants to hang out with a bunch of bears, kangaroos, and rabbits in the woods when you could fly around space with Luke Skywalker battling stormtroopers and Darth Vader in a galaxy far, far away? I may not feel an emotional tie to Winnie the way many children and their parents do, but I can enjoy one of their adventures every once in a while.

Blu-ray: The Tigger Movie: Bounce-a-Rrrific Special Edition – A Successful Allegory on Family Values

The Tigger Movie may not have the riche cache of songs you would expect from a Disney movie, but it more than makes up for its lackluster music roster with a heartfelt allegory on the modern family. Now on Blu-ray, The Tigger Movie comes home with some additional “bounce.”

Labeled the “Bounce-a-RRRific” Special Edition, the new Blu-ray contains ten animated shorts, a “Tigger Tale” featurette with the production team and a few family tree stickers for offline family fun.

The Tigger Movie begins with a familiar opening. Tigger (voiced by Jim Cummings) bounces in on his friend Winnie The Pooh and lands squarely on Pooh’s stomach, much to the bear’s chagrin. Tigger is in the mood for some bouncing, but unfortunately none of his friends in the 100-Acre Mile have the time or interest in joining him. Well, nobody except for Roo (voiced by Nikita Hopkins), who looks

Blu-ray Review: Disney Unleashes HD Assault of Animated Films

Chicago – Even Disney’s animated canon has a few films that aren’t going to get the marketing push or special edition treatment like “Finding Nemo” and “Cinderella” will get before the end of the year. And yet there are some hidden gems deep in the catalog of the most influential and important film studio of all time. The Mouse House just released seven films on five Blu-rays and I can guarantee you that at least one will meet the needs of your family when it’s time to turn on the electric babysitter. Pick your favorite.

It’s a tough call for this critic. I’d have to go with “The Aristocats,” the 20th Disney animated film and a pretty interesting time capsule given the way it bridges the gap from the more fantasy and literature-based animation of the first few chunks of the Disney archive and the creative

"The Tigger Movie" Rebounds from Weak Songs with a Strong Message

Up until 2011’s Winnie the Pooh, Disney’s solid effort in taking the pudgy yellow bear back to his classic roots, A.A. Milne’s lovable characters from the Hundred Acre Woods had devolved into little more than a cash cow franchise for Disney thanks in no small part to Eddie Guzelian, the man responsible for Disney's descent into direct-to-dvd sequel doldrums. They were churning out half-baked movies every year that still amused the kiddies but felt like a money grab to those who grew up with the classic stories and television cartoons. The Tigger Movie unfortunately falls in that spree of Winnie the Pooh movies lacking in merit, and the forced musical numbers would almost be unbearable if it weren’t for the film’s strong message about the broader meaning of family. That theme combined with some great animation redeem it at least a little.

New DVD Blu-Ray: 'Bernie,' 'The Dictator'

Moviefone's Pick of the Week "Bernie" What's It About? Jack Black re-teams with "School of Rock" director Richard Linklater for a twisted dark comedy about the true story of Bernie Tiede, an eccentric Texas community leader who murdered the town's rich widow Marjorie Nugent (played by Shirley MacLaine). See It Because: Linklater has always been a great actor's director. In addition to a hilariously icy MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey (who plays a big-headed Da), the director populates the film with eccentric personalities, including real neighbors of the actual Tiede. But this is Black's movie: his disappearance into the unique and flamboyant Bernie reminds you that beneath his trademark schtick is a gifted comedic actor. (Also Available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video) New on DVD & Blu-ray "Chimpanzee" What's It About? Disney's latest documentary chronicles the true story of Oscar, a young baby who was orphaned and left to fend for himself in the wild.

'The Dictator', 'A Separation' and 'Bernie' Top Today's DVD and Blu-ray Releases

A Separation Listed by many as either their favorite film of 2011 or at least in their top ten, Oscar's Best Foreign Language Film winner A Separation finally comes home to DVD and Blu-ray. Personally, while I liked the movie there was an aspect to it near the end that took a little something away from the story for me. It's a film you should make sure and see and one I'm pretty sure most all of you will enjoy if not love. Buying it on the other hand, doesn't seem like a necessity.

 

The Dictator To my surprise I didn't even have this movie on the schedule until adding it this morning. I'm not sure if that says anything about the film or not, but I probably should have realized considering all the press releases I deleted without opening related to the title over the last several days. So with that introduction,
