Another POOH poster

Not to overdo our coverage of Disney’s forthcoming Winnie The Pooh, but this new international teaser poster is a delight – and a big improvement over the last one.

(Thanks Ed Himmel via Scannain.com)

  • That’s really nice. So what horned creature will the gang come across then? Looks like Chernabog in the trees. :)

  • Matt Petersen

    I LOVE IT!!
    I honestly never thought I’d be excited to see another Winnie the Pooh movie EVER, and yet here I am excited!!

  • Adam

    Look out, Pooh! Satan is in the tree! Or a viking!

    • chipper

      Damn! Now I can’t unsee Hagar in the background.

  • Stephen M. Levinson


  • Chris Sobieniak

    Now I’m impatient! The poster just screams perfection!

  • Clean3d

    I was genuinely thrilled when I saw this poster. Thrilled, that is, until the other readers pointed out the bit I missed. This movie has a monster? That means the plot will most likely be about them all getting scared by a big *something*, and then they find out it’s just a misunderstood fuzzy with horns who was trying to make friends. Oh bother.

    I take everything back if it’s part of a heffalumps and woozles dream sequence.

  • lovely!

  • Doop

    Gooooo Disney feature! Hit another out of the park.

  • Scarabim

    Okay, now THIS poster is cute. Pooh with that doubtful look on his face and that oven mitt on his head = GOLD.

  • I really liked the last one. This one’s even better. Especially Owl’s pose. :)

  • Was My Face Red

    That’s a sweet piece of work. It made me smile and there’s not a cute bone in my body.

    The only thing I can nitpick here (and come on, I had to at least a ‘little’ bit) is that Kanga and Owl are a bit out of character. But then, they are all clearly acting.

    • Agreed. The one thing that jumped out at me is that Kanga looks like she’s had samurai training, which doesn’t quite fit with her usual maternal, passive character.

      Still, I agree that its’ better than the first poster. Really liking the background.

      • How passive is Kanga, really? In the original Milne, other animals are prejudiced against Kanga and Roo when they first move to the forest. They plan to scare them away by kidnapping Roo and replacing him with Piglet. Kanga, not fooled for a moment, forces Piglet through Roo’s evening bath with an iron will. She’s no pushover.

      • I haven’t watched the original “Many Adventures” in a long time, it’s been ages since I read the books, and I haven’t seen all the Disney sequels. But my memories of Kanga as she’s portrayed in her Disney incarnation is that she’s very gentle, motherly character, the closest thing that the Hundred Acre Wood has to a responsible adult. “Passive” may not be the right word; I think if Roo was in danger, she could probably protect him if she had to. But I’ve never seen her as someone who is ready for trouble at any moment, let alone looking for it.

      • 2011 Toddler

        Badass Kanga.

        I will allow this.

  • Whoa. Kanga looks intense.

  • The devil speaks to the owl from the trees… The owl warns the other animals to arm themselves and be vigilent, for the days of Armageddon are nigh.

  • Charlie

    I hear “Something wicked this way comes” in the back of my head…

    But this poster is pure gold. I think Im going to lose $12…

    • Chris Sobieniak

      Someone gave me a free movie ticket offer I may just use for this occasion (if the only theater I can go to anymore around here participates in the thing, I hate being excluded from deals).

  • Cross-over with “Black Cauldron”

  • Gobo

    I guess Lumpy isn’t part of this one, then? That’s a pity, I thought he was a great addition to the Pooh lineup.

  • Mike Russo

    No one is good to nit-pick the character models yet? It’s only a matter of time.

    • Was My Face Red

      Er… they don’t look like they do in the books?

  • Kieran Pertnav

    I think is another UK poster since it says cinemas instead of theaters, amrite?

  • Mac

    My favourite thing about this poster has got to be Eeyore and his ‘Tael’.

    • lucy

      Tsk tsk. That joke may mislead children into thinking that is the correct spelling.

      Sorry. Too many S&P notes lately.

  • e

    really lovely. it’s not in 3D, is it?

    • Justin

      It better not be; I’m not paying money to see it in 3D. Instead I’m going to see it in 2D. I bet you it’s not in 3D because of it being 2D animation.

  • Steven M.

    Very nice.

  • s.w.a.c.

    Is David Lynch involved? “Owl is not what he seems…”

  • Mark

    I’m dying for a traditionally animated film, but when I think that the next one is going to be Winnie the Pooh, I just feel incredibly depressed and defeated.

    • Gobo

      You may be the only man on earth who gets depressed over a hand-drawn, hand-painted, sweetly old-school Winnie the Pooh film.

      • Was My Face Red

        Other far more depressing things are available.

  • Jm

    So the Film is called Whinnie the Pooh and the….what

  • Clint

    Oh my God…The Horned King is in the new Winnie The Pooh film. Anyone think that would be pretty cool?

  • ShouldBeWorkin’

    Is the horned silhouette negative space in the tree leaves intentional?

  • AdrianC.

    Owl looks great!

    The stream below bothers, though. To me, it looks like more like moist cement than flowing water. That’s my nitpick for the day.

    • Was My Face Red

      Yep, that’s pretty darn picky.

  • As much as I love, LOVE Winnie the Pooh, and I know this is going to be GREAT but I don’t know how this is going to compete with anything at the Box Office. It looks so….low scale.

    Maybe that’s the point, huh?

    • Justin

      I heard that the next Harry Potter movie will be released on the same day as Winnie the Pooh, so it may not do as well.

      • E. L. Kelly II

        That Harry Potter monster is formidable, and will certainly take a bit of skrill off Pooh, but, aside from counter-programming, I think Disney is betting their chips on the Harry Potter franchise running out of steam. NOT A LOT!!! mind you, and this is the final film in the franchise, so a big send-off is in order, but a cursory glance at B. O. Mojo will reveal Deathly Hallows‘ precipitous decline between a staggering 1st weekend and O.K. 3rd weekend. (126 to 17 mil.) The films have gotten darker recently; maybe parents will choose different? A change of director in HP series may result in Hallows being cinematically inferior to its predecessors; could there be less intensity from the least rabid HP fans? Of COURSE, the Potter-worshippers will go to Hogwarts church, but theres too many other variables among moviegoersto count.

        I might not know what the hell I’m writing about. Heck, Disney itself has worn out the Pooh franchise. I’m just trying to see the reasoning behind Disney’s kamikaze decision, myself.
        This poster is a step in the right direction. Its got the cutes and charms to make folks look fondly. Disney should get it blown up and put on building-sides soon, just to cause a little positive sub-conscious awareness among the public.
        use THIS poster!!! Disney shouldn’t redo a LINE in the name of whatever they think an American audience wants. the silly old bear is British anyway…let the Isles reign over the publicity.

  • Alissa

    Okay, they got me. This is the cutest thing ever.

    Please please please let the horned thing be a heffelump or woozle pleassssseee.

    Bit worried about Owl over there though. Did someone spike his morning tea with a ‘special’ mushroom?

  • I’d always wanted to work on a Winnie the Pooh movie, but it seemed I was always on another picture when they were in production. Finally, I got to work on “The Tigger Movie.” Cheryl Abood produced, Jun Falkenstein directed, and Toby Bluth art directed. It was great fun.

  • Willy105

    Looks wonderful, but I fear for how it will look for the general audience.

    They probably think it’s a baby film.

  • Ss

    Surely will do best like the lion king.
