Definitely Scary

My three kids, 4, 5 & 8 all thought it was scary. The entire premise is scary. As another reviewer mentioned, if your child has been desensitized to movie violence this movie will be fine for them. My kids still get very anxious at movies with tense scenes or any violence, so this is a definite NO for us.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (13 ):
Kids say (13 ):

The songs in this movie are tedious and uninspired, as is much of the dialogue and interaction among the characters. Disney is simply following a formula that's been used for these characters many times. On the positive side, the story is simple and tries to evoke the charm of the original adventures of the animals of the Hundred Acre Woods.

Truth be told, kids, especially preschoolers, will enjoy this movie. And parents will be happy with its good, clean fun and positive messages. A short called "Pooh's Symphony" plays automatically following the end credits, and this in turn is followed by Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day, a classic Disney cartoon.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
