Kyle Smith seems to think so:
Disney’s big-screen “Winnie the Pooh” lovingly re-creates those delightful cartoons — right down to the theme song, the characters wandering out of their illustrations to toddle across the sentences of A.A. Milne’s stories and even the imperishable voice of Pooh. Sterling Holloway, who did those scratchy, uncertain vocals, has perished. But actor Jim Cummings has him down cold.
Given the successes of “Tangled” and “The Princess and the Frog” also it now seems safe to say that Disney Animation has returned to another BOOM period after a decade of mediocrity and irrelevancy. Will the films coming top the high quality offerings of the Disney Renaissance period? Considering the trends in Disney’s work (each BOOM period is better than the one that came before it) I would wager yes.
While we’re eager to get out and see it methinks that The Wife and I will wait until next week AFTER Carmageddon is over this weekend.
Actually, on second thought… After watching that trailer again maybe we will brave the wilds of Carmageddon to make it to the theatre.
