My opinion right after watching movie
My opinion right after the film is that it is one of the better Winnie the Pooh films, but I am still overly bored of the film. This is the first one in the franchise that is not a package film, so that is interesting…………not really. It might as well be a package film.

So the film starts off with a horribly animated CGI segment that is Christopher Robin (Brady Bluhm)’s room. We are taken to One Hundred Acres, with Tigger (Jim Cummings) preparing to swim, but Pooh (Jim Cummings) and Piglet (John Fiedler and Steve Schatzberg) tell him that there is no snow. He then goes over to Rabbit (Ken Sansom)’s home to ask him what day it is, and Rabbit tells Tigger that it is February 2nd, still saying that it is still winter. This causes everyone to think that they missed December and January. They look for a groundhog, but cannot find one, so they tell Piglet to dress up as a groundhog, and since he could not see his shadow, he thought that it was spring.
Rabbit goes off to look for Piglet all out in the snow, but he thinks that a snowman is Piglet, taking him back to home to panic. I cannot believe how stupid this scene is. Tigger throws hot water on the snowman to “save Piglet”, but the real Piglet returns home. Rabbit tells all of them that it is November, so they all relax and prepare for Thanksgiving.
Own (Andre Stojka) was cooking, as Tigger and Eeyore (Gregg Berger) are looking for berries, with Winnie and Piglet showing up. They eventually return, and a bunch of foolishness took place, and it kind of ruins the holiday. Everything is soon forgiven, and they all sing about Thanksgiving.
We then skip to Christmas, where everyone is having some fun. I take back what I said, since this is organized as another segment. Rabbit is pissed off when Pooh lets the bird named Kessie (Laura Mooney) he was watching let loose and go crazy, only to be caught. Rabbit decides to look out for the bird himself, tending to it like it is his own baby.
The bubble pops, and Kessie ends up back to Rabbit, who is forced to promise to never go as high as that again. We skip to the point where the snow is melted, and Kessie continues to practice to fly behind his back (though the others know about it). He is with Tigger, and Kessie ends up falling from a broken tree, with Rabbit hears his scream, and running to the tree that Tigger and Kessie are about to fall from, but when Rabbit holds Kessie, the bird falls, only to be saved by Owl, who tries to tell him he needs to learn how to fly. The same thing happens when Pooh tries to teach him how to fly, but Rabbit catches him and Tigger, stating that they should not teach him how to fly.
Rabbit falls down a cliff, but is saved by a flying Kessie. The both of them get home, and Rabbit expects him to leave, since he can fly, and the bird does not need him anymore, having an emotional goodbye. Everyone but Rabbit are preparing for Kessie to leave, and he tells Owl to tell Rabbit goodbye, but he flies of right when Rabbit shows up, only for the bird to fly back to say goodbye to Rabbit.
I do not have time to go through every character, so I will say this. The characters are exactly the damn same, and Kessie is an emotional person who wants to grow up. Nothing else.
The animation in this film is a lot less impressive than most of the Disneytoons and all of the other films in the Winnie the Pooh franchise. The quality in the animation is very poor, and the movements are very rigid. Not pretty to look at.
The music in the film is the typical music in any Winnie the Pooh film.
