News of new "Winnie the Pooh" feature

I've read some pretty amazing recent news regarding the new Winnie the Pooh movie coming out this summer. I don't know about you, but this is one of the movies I'm excited about this year. For one thing, it's a hand-drawn animated feature, done the old-fashioned way as the Disney Studio used to make. But more importantly, I'm very proud that Disney has been returning to its roots within the last few years. Even though this is only the second 2D Disney feature since 2009's The Princess and the Frog, it promises to be a nostalgic, entertaining film for everybody. And given the amazing progress the studio has made since the mid-2000s (including Pixar co-founder John Lasseter's role as Chief Creative Officer for both studios), others may agree as well.

The following is a recent video interview with singer-actress Zooey Deschanel (Elf, Yes Man, 500 Days of Summer), who contributes a few songs to the film. She has a really amazing voice, and seems like a perfect fit to contribute to the world of the Hundred Acre Wood.

Winnie the Pooh is rated G, and opens July 16th in theaters everywhere.
