The “Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” will now be available on Blu-ray and HD Digital.  Although the medium of delivery has changed the story remains the same.

Audiences first saw “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” back in 1977.    That movie contained many of the scenes and stories that Pooh lovers have come to cherish.  The film contained a few previously aired Winnie Pooh animated featurettes that were taken from taken from the books of A.A.Milne.   The original featurettes were “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree,” “Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day,” and “Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too.”   Those stories were all tied in together with additional animation to form “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”

Now the movie will be re-released in Blu-ray and HD Digital.    This will be the same movie, but with some bonus features.

The re-release will be available in several different formats.   There will be a Blu-ray Combo Pack that retails for $36.99 and will contain the Blu-ray, a DVD, and a Digital Copy.     The DVD can be purchased separately for $26.99.   Digital copies can also be purchased separately for various prices from different retailers.

With the Blu-ray, copy viewers will get special features like:

  • NEW! Disney Intermission – Press “pause” during the movie and find out what happens!  The narrator invites younger viewers to play along with the Hundred Acre Wood friends in a variety of engaging activities.
  • NEW! Pooh Play-Along – In this bonus feature, the narrator invites viewers to play along with Pooh and his friends.

The DVD will have fewer things.  It has the Mini Adventure “Geniuses” and  “The Winnie the Pooh Theme Song.”

The Digital copy has everything that the Blu-ray copy contains, but the special Disney Intermission.
