Disney keeps rolling out the animated classics on Blu-ray Disc and we think it’s a really good thing. Next up for the HD digital treatment is 1977’s The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh which is set to be released on August 27, 2013. The film is the 22nd animated motion picture from the Walt Disney Animation Studios canon (from the Xerox era) and is a compilation of three “Winnie the Pooh” short films made in 1966, 1968 and 1974: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too.
The new and returning (legacy) extras on the Blu-ray Disc include:
- NEW – Disney Intermission – Press “pause” during the movie and a narrator invites the younger set 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
- NEW – Five “Mini Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” Shorts: If I Wasn’t So Small, Piglet’s Drawings, The Expedition, Geniuses and The Honey Song
- LEGACY – Winnie the Pooh and a Day for Eeyore – the 1983 animated short
- LEGACY – “The Story Behind the Masterpiece” – Making of Featurette
