Good message about friendship.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there are some mildly scary moments in this film. For example, a big shadow looks like a monster but turns out to be Christopher Robin. There is sadness and confusion when the animals think Christopher Robin is missing. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
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.
