5 Minutes for Mom contributing writer, Christie O. (Average Moms Wear Capes) had the opportunity to see an early screening of the new Winnie-the-Pooh movie, as well as actually becoming Piglet on screen!
I’m linking to her review here, because I know that some of you are eagerly awaiting this new release:
Yes, believe it or not, it has truly been more than three decades since Winnie the Pooh’s been the star of the big screen as part of A.A. Milne’s original stories – I can’t even believe it myself! Not since 1977 has Pooh been seen on film in his true classic form. That all changes July 15th when the Pooh that our parents and grandparents grew to love makes his comeback for an entirely new generation. And I must say, Pooh hasn’t aged a bit! Honey must be an amazing anti-aging agent. (I’m going to have to look into that.)
In short, Winnie the Pooh stole my heart.
Directed by Don Hall and Stephen Anderson, the newest Winnie the Pooh installation revisits the tales of the Hundred Acre Wood by A.A. Milne, by using three different story lines from the original books and combining them all into one nice big honeypot that literally overflows with the innocent sweetness of the classics.

I’m hoping that my mother-in-law will be interested in taking the younger kids to go see this movie while they watch our crew next weekend. I think they’ll have a blast!
