GREATER POOHSPECTIVE

A short TV documentary on the new Disney Winnie the Pooh film in which I make a cameo appearance...

Here's to Pooh historians everywhere, whether they know who they are or not!!

Do you know how the film was received in the States Brian? I haven't heard a lot about it.

Oh very good interview! I like how articulate you are in all the Disney interviews, you're one of the historians I always remember afterwards.

Love the tie :)

I have always very much enjoyed and appreciated your commentary and perspectives that are included on the DVDs of the various Disney films, not to mention the Lord of the Rings! I've also enjoyed learning on this blog of your connection to P. L. Travers, who has always been of some interest to me (I am an amateur scholar of children's literature).

Andy – I think it was generally felt to be a bit 'light' for family entertainment. Personally, I liked it a lot and thought it had pretty much perfectly recaptured the mood of the first three Pooh 'featurettes'.

Ladytink and Anonymous – Thank you so much!! :)

A bit light? I think that perhaps says more about the audiences than the film!

I too thought it to be excellent and I can't wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray. I hope they put the originals on Blu-Ray too.
