The 51st film
in the Disney Animated Canon
. Winnie the Pooh
is a direct sequel to the 1977 film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
. It is based on three previously unadapted Pooh stories ("In Which Eeyore Loses a Tail and Pooh Finds One" and a fusion of "In Which Rabbit Has a Busy Day and We Learn What Christopher Robin Does in the Mornings" and "In Which Piglet Meets a Heffalump").
- Pooh runs out of honey and has to find some.
- Eeyore's tail is gone and everyone tries to find the perfect replacement.
- Christopher Robin goes away for a while and leaves a note saying he'll be "back soon", but his friends assume that he was captured by a monster called the Backson, and go on a hunt for it!
The film is notable for being the second traditionally animated theatrical Disney film post-Home on the Range
, as well as the fourth sequel
(or arguably, the fifth
) in the Canon.
This movie also opened with the theatrical short cartoon The Ballad of Nessie
