POOH’S GRAND ADVENTURE
THE SEARCH FOR CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

Includes New Games and Bonus Music Featurette

Full-Length Animated Adventure Celebrates Pooh’s 80th Anniversary

Fully Restored And Remastered, Available April 11, 2006

BURBANK, Calif., September 28, 2005 – Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents the first-ever DVD release of POOH’S GRAND ADVENTURE - THE SEARCH FOR CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, available on April 11, 2006. This enchanting Hundred Acre Woods story has been in the fabled Disney Vault for almost nine years, and has been fully digitally restored and remastered for its DVD debut. A.A. Milne published his first “Pooh” story 80 years ago, and POOH’S GRAND ADVENTURE - THE SEARCH FOR CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is based on one of Milne’s classic original stories. When Christopher Robin goes off to school, Pooh and his pals set off on a “grand adventure” to find their friend. Come celebrate Winnie the Pooh’s 80th anniversary with Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore and all the Hundred Acre Wood characters, in this animated treasure filled with songs and laughs, available on Disney DVD for $29.99 (SRP).

Grand, all-new bonus features include the new game “Adventures In The Hundred Acre Wood.” This family friendly feature has multiple levels and adventures: “Where is Christopher Robin,” “Pooh’s Honey Pot,” “Piglet’s Tree Troubles,” “Tigger’s Hide and Go Bounce,” “Eeyore’s Fallen House,” and “Rabbit’s Carrot Pulling Problem.” There is a “Pooh’s Symphony” feature on the music of Winnie The Pooh.

In this full-length feature film, Pooh’s dearest friend in all the world, Christopher Robin, searches for a way to tell his “silly old bear” that it’s time for him to begin school, and that they cannot play together every moment, forever and ever. He wants to explain that even if they’re far apart, he will still always be with Pooh. But parting is never easy, and Christopher Robin leaves Pooh a note attached to a jar of honey. Of course the honey spills, making the words almost illegible. When Pooh and the others bring 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!

POOH’S GRAND ADVENTURE – THE SEARCH OF CHRISTOPHER ROBIN 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. This joyous and entertaining adventure includes five original songs made for the movie.

Screenplay by Karl Geurs and Carter Crocker. Inspired by the stories of A.A. Milne. Directed by Karl Geurs.
