Hearing Pooh's voice was a magical experience all by itself. The rest of the film still seems very generic though and by the book (just not Winnie the Pooh's book unfortunately). I also don't care too much for CGI stuffed Pooh. It'll probably grow on me though and at least it actually resembles Christopher Robin's original stuffed bear.

Oh wow this looks bad. If Pooh looks worn out like that throughout the whole film then this is a pass for me. There is zero expression on him...

I’m shocked at how bad this looks.

I was thinking the same thing! :lol:

Agreed. The teaser trailer was decent until they showed Winnie. It was painful to look at that. The stuffed animal barely moved its mouth, there was no discerning expression, the performance was stiff and the whole thing came off a bit unsettling. How come the animation on Ted looked so much better than this?

I was hoping the direction of this movie would be more melancholic and bittersweet like Where the Wild Things Are but instead this looks generic, derivative and superficial.

Wow... In comparison to the Mary Poppins Returns teaser, that was a huge MEH. The only great thing about it was hearing Jim Cummings voice again; but with that said I don't hate the way Pooh looks for they want to be a combination of both the book illustration version and the classic Disney version (Though the mouth animations need a whole lot of work). Hopefully the movie is a lot better than it looks, otherwise this could be a skip it movie for me.

The movie doesn't look as bad as I feared, but a bit generic as some have said. I've seen some people on the Internet are comparing it to Hook. Anyway, the teaser only showed footage from the beginning, we haven't seen anything from the Hundred Acre Wood yet, where most of the movie takes place according to that last report. So, I think we need to see more to judge it.

Regarding Winnie the Pooh's design, I understand it's a combination of the original stuffed bear, the book illustration version and the Disney version, but he could've looked better. Also, though I suppose it's the size it should be, he looks tiny next to adult Christopher Robin. At least, he retains his red T-shirt, and of course, I'm glad Jim Cummings is voicing him.

Here's a short interview with Marc Forster, the film's director: https://ohmy.disney.com/news/2018/03/06 ... interview/

I hated Hook from how it destroyed the Peter Pan mythos, a story very dear to my heart. Winnie the Pooh is also and I dread any comparisons between these two films. Hopefully it'll be as forgotten as Goodbye Christopher Robin at the end of the year.

I loved this. While I need to re-watch it (I wasn't focused on his mouth movements...I was just having a happy/pure, excited momement hearing/seeing Pooh, they could very well tweak the mouth movements/animation; there still is plenty of time before it releases).

I like the premise of Christopher Robin being able to get some perspective on his adult life from his childhood friends/toys. I wish my childhood toys would come alive and help me with adulting.

I think this looks like it'll be fun, and very meaningful and will "bring the feels" for those of us who are adults, both for those of us that still embrace aspects of our youth (like a lot of Disney fans), and for those who have left that behind.

Well, the teaser was mellow and endearing enough, but as with the majority, I disliked Pooh's design. It was so awfully generic.

I finally got around to watching the teaser, and I have to say that it gave me a horror vibe just like the tag line, except with the Pooh reveal. Just change the background music to something suspenseful and you’d think he’s about to maul CR’s face.

The moving stuffed animals are going to be a little disturbing going by what's shown here. I didn't think the teaser was as bad as it was made out to be here though. Shouldn't Mycroft be too busy with the British elections to be a jerk to Christopher Robin?

The teaser has a generic setting up of the story but it was magical when Christopher met Pooh again! Yes, he looked creepy, but so were the objects in Beauty and the Beast. I guess Ted was somehow less creepy though so he could be better after all.

Sotiris, I guess you like melcancholic stuff and think that feeling is good? I really don't know what to think about that.

I was referring to Winnie the Pooh being a property that can be nostalgic and melancholic when targeted to adults. For example, the trailer for the 2011 film tried to achieve that with the use of music and montage.

Don't worry, Sotiris, the average person would understand what you mean without questioning your sanity.

Anyway, I agree. The film should have the same kind of melancholy you see at the end of the WtP stories when Pooh and Christopher Robin say goodbye, or in the Toy Story films when Andy grows up. The loss of childhood innocence is bittersweet, and that's what I imagined this film would touch into. :lol:

The definition of melancholic is gloomy or depressed or seriously thoughtful. I've never heard of people considering gloomy an entertainment aspect, but I suppose. Well, no, that word just threw me off because I'd never heard it used like that before. It doesn't just mean gloomy. It's a word that can mean something different than that, and I get why you used it in this thread.

By the way I wasn't questioning anyone's sanity. It would be nice if you weren't a mean person to people, Disney's Divinity.

You think I've ever done anything mean to anyone on here as you have been to me?

Yes. You're no victim.

Anyway, I'm interested in how Owl and Rabbit as real animals (CG) will look next to the stuffed animals in this film. The one good thing about them being different than the others is they may avoid the slightly-creepy vibe Pooh gave me in the teaser.

It looks pretty fantastic to me. Yeah, Pooh's design put me off a little at first, but I'm already warming up to it.

I'll be very pleased if this turns out to be true.
