Keep Lumpy In The New 2011 Winnie the Pooh Movie!


In 2011, the first hand-drawn Winnie the Pooh movie in six years will be released. The movie is being produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. This marks the first time in more than 35 years that a Winnie the Pooh motion picture is being produced at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Under the supervision of John Lasseter and producer, Clark Spencer ("Lilo & Stitch," "Bolt") the movie is due out in theaters spring 2011. Steve Anderson ("Meet the Robinsons") and Don Hall (head of story on "The Princess and The Frog") will co-direct. Burny Mattinson who worked as an animator on the original Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree featurette in 1964 will serve as the lead story artist on the project.

In 2005, Lumpy the Heffalump melted our hearts when he busted onto the screen in "Pooh's Heffalump Movie." His exuberance, loyalty, and silliness were the essence of an innocent childhood. Fans of the purple Heffalump, Heffridge Trumpler Brompet Heffalump the Fourth, need to join together to ensure Lumpy is in the film. It is possible that Disney will make this new Pooh film a direct sequel to the original, which would cut Lumpy out. If you're a fan of this heartwarming, purple Heffalump please express it by signing the petition and letting Disney know that Lumpy should be in the 2011 Winnie the Pooh sequel!

I imagine Darby will be there.

As far as voices, there's Jim Cummings voicing Pooh and Tigger, so they're good on that, but what about Piglet? After John Fiedler's passing, Piglet has rarely been seen or heard in any recent Pooh project.

Because Darby is a prominent character in the recent "My Friends Tigger and Pooh" animated series, and she appears on dozens of pieces of merchandise, so it's safe to say she's become a main character in the franchise.

"I'm afraid you was wrong."

Are you 6 years old or did you fail grammar school?

"Nothing points at Darby will be appearing in the film."

I said I IMAGINE she will, it's not definite. Besides, how would you know any of this? Are you working on the movie?

"Perhaps it is a direct sequel to "Pooh's most grand Adventure"."

Perhaps they will return to their roots and do a follow up to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh from 1977. Study the film and learn about what made it so great. It's high time Disney returned to their roots, and I think The Princess and the Frog was a very good start.
