After releasing the first images yesterday from the upcoming “Winnie the Pooh” film, Disney has now released the first trailer for the film, scheduled for release to theaters in Summer 2011.
The trailer offers a look at the traditional, 2D hand-drawn animation that has been revived for the new “Pooh” film, bringing the series back to its roots:
Beyond a dazzling sequence filled with glistening honey that only modern technology could produce, this trailer, complete with storybook page turning, shows off how the film is taking cues from the look and feel of Disney’s classic “Pooh” tales. It even takes time to make the the point that the Pooh family, including Eeyore, Piglet, Owl, and Tigger, are “back where they belong” on the big screen, letting audiences know that this is indeed the Winnie the Pooh they remember, not the mass-produced computer-animated version we have grown used to seeing in recent years.
“Winnie the Pooh” will hit theaters on July 15, 2011.
