On April 11th, Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents the first-ever DVD release of Pooh’s Grand Adventure – The Search For Christopher Robin (the Hundred Acre Woods story that has been in the fabled Disney vault for almost nine years) fully digitally restored and remastered for the suggested retailed price of $29.99.
Based on one of A. A. Mine’s classic original stories, the movie follows the grand adventure of Pooh and his pals as they set off to find Christopher Robin – who has gone off to school.
The journey begins with Christopher Robin searching for a way to tell his “silly old bear” that it is time for him to begin school, and that they cannot play together every moment, forever and ever. But parting is never easy, and Christopher Robin leaves Pooh a note attached to a jar of honey. Of course, the honey spills and makes the words impossible to read. When Pooh takes the note to Owl, he misreads it and tells the anxious friends that Christopher Robin has gone to “skull” instead of “school,” and needs their help. Pooh and his friends go on a grand journey, to the eye of the great skull cave, searching for Christopher Robin, and finding fun and adventure.
The DVD features a stellar cast of “Pooh” favorites with Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh, the late John Fiedler as Piglet, Ken Sansom as Rabbit, Andre Stojka as Owl, Peter Cullen as Eeyore, Brady Bluhm as Christopher Robin, David Warner as the Narrator, and the late Paul Winchell as Tigger. It also features five original songs made for the movie.
The DVD will come with all new bonus features including:
“Adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood” game – which has multiple levels and adventures.
Pooh’s Symphony – a feature on the music of Winnie the Pooh
Bonus Short: Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day
