** When Christopher Robin gets stuck in a gap in a tree, Pooh asks if he just ate honey, a nod to ''[[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree]]'', where Pooh got stuck in Rabbit's burrow after eating too much honey.

** The opening is mostly a faithful adaptation of the final chapter of ''The House at Pooh Corner'', which was previously adapted both at the end of ''[[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Many Adventures]]'' as well as the ending of ''WesternAnimation/PoohsGrandAdventure''. But this time, they included the party for Christopher and Eeyore's feeble attempt at poetry, which is lifted from the book.

* ForegoneConclusion: If this movie is to be taken by canon, it's come clear that Christopher Robin doesn't begin a relationship with Winifred in ''[[WinnieThePoohAValentineForYou A Valentine For You]]'', given that he marries Evelyn.

** Pooh's predicament at the start of the film, that he can't find any of his friends, hearkens back to his storyline in ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI Kingdom Hearts]]'', complete with Christopher Robin fulfilling Sora's role in finding them (ironic, as Sora basically replaced Christopher's role in the story).'

* MacGuffin: Pooh's balloon.


* OnlySaneMan: Pooh is the only one in the Hundred Acre Wood who recognizes Christopher Robin as an adult.

** In the novelization, Christopher Robin is bullied by some boys at boarding school. He compares them to Heffalumps in his mind and thinks that Pooh would probably end up liking a Heffalump if he met one, even though he probably wouldn't like the boys. Of course, when Pooh did meet a Heffalump, he did end up liking him.


* RoleReprisal:
** Most of the ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' voice actors of previous Disney works have been replaced, though Creator/JimCummings returns as Pooh himself and Tigger (although it was originally planned that Chris O'Dowd would voice the latter). Creator/BradGarrett also reprises Eeyore, having provided his voice in ''VideoGame/DisneysAnimatedStorybook: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree''.
** In the European Spanish dub, all the toys and animals' voice actors (except Roo) reprised their roles. Even Tony Canal, who was semi-retired, returned as Pooh.
** The same goes in the Latin American Spanish dub, when the voices of all the dolls and animal characters reprise their roles, excluding Eeyore and Roo.
** In the Japanese dub, all the voice actors from the animal and plush characters reprise their roles, except Pooh.
** Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, Piglet, and Kanga's German voice actors returned.
* RunningGag: Whenever the human characters are carrying the animal characters through London, they will at some point have to interact with someone else (a train ticket collector, a salesman, a police officer, etc.). When they finish, the animal character will politely repeat the human character's thanks to the person they were interacting with.

** Tigger's design stands out among the group as being a little unusual in a few respects. Pooh, Piglet, and Eeyore have all been designed to look like worn out stuffed animal versions of their pre-Disney book illustrations. Tigger on the other hand keeps his distinctive Disney head shape (and for some reason, has his stripes even ''more'' faded than his original stuffed animal counterpart).

* RealIsBrown: Unusual for a Disney and Pooh film, all of the colors are very disaturated to emphasize the depressing reality of what it means to grow up and lose your innocence -- even Pooh looks worn and depressed. It's a deliberate example of this trope, as the opening of the film has a brighter, more vibrant color palette, as do the Hundred Acre Wood scenes when Christopher reconciles with his old friends.
