I'm looking forward to the Pixar Factor that every old-school post-Lasseter 2D/fairytale/throwback animated project we think will "sink the studio" from the teaser hype turns out to be a pretty darn good movie anyway. (Well, that's making generous allowances for Princess/Frog, but it was painless enough to count.)droosan wrote:Every dialogue-based scene I've seen in the trailers & peeks at this 'new' Winnie the Pooh movie seems to have its origins in passages from the books. I'm looking forward to it, whether or not it becomes a 'box-office smash'.
Even if it doesn't "beat" Harry Potter, if it at least gets the crisis-averted positive word of mouth that Tangled got, the message will have been absorbed.
And yes, looks like they're going back to the Walt days of adapting the actual Milne text--I cringed a bit of personal recognition at the "Issue a reward" (gesundheit!) jokes in the trailer, as I'd used to think they were hysterically funny when I'd first read the original Eeyore's tail story, at five or six.
