This "Tigger Movie" is different though. Again and again I found that it moved me to tears, and the story, animation and writing all hit home, almost like they were created by people who actually cared deeply about what they were doing. So far, it's the only one of the modern Pooh films I've seen that captures much of the original Disney/A.A. Milne magic. My son loves it too.
The Tigger Movie is a captivating, timeless movie-comparable to the NeverEnding Story. It gives us all a glimpse of what it's like to be a child, particularly in terms of innocence and imaginiation. Another quality it shares with the latter film is that the more times you view the movie, the more appeal you realize it has.
Tigger is a lonely sort, despite his overconfidence and assertive personality. Something all children, teenagers and especially adults can identify with. His friends, being the ideal group of friends that they are, only mean to help boost his spirits, but unfortunately their intentions are mis-read by Tigger, who sees their masquerading as members of his family to be insensitive (excellent emotional development-something I wouldn't have imagined coming from past viewings of the previous Pooh series). After an emotional exit, he sets off on a quest to find his true family, the sort that bears legitimate resemblence to him.
As could be expected, his friends worry about him and eventually go on a search mission for him. What ultimately happens is a revelation for Tigger as he discovers that bonds are made of emotional ties over physical resemblences.
In addition to showcasing the ever-popular Tigger, I was pleasently surprised that this film also shows emphasis on some of the previously less-featured characters, in particular Kanga, Owl, and the eternally young Roo. All three characters are voiced and individualized very convincingly. Gopher is, fortunately, nowhere to be seen.
The animation here is among the most inspired I've seen, featuring stunning backdrops. Some of the characters look a bit different (especially Rabbit) from what I remember, but overall the animation and artwork is obviously movie-quality, rather than the abysmal video-sequel stuff Disney's been churning out over the last several years. This is a vast improvement, both artistically and plot-wise, over the more recent Pooh animated series and D2V sequels, which gives me hope for more theatrical releases starring these always-refreshing characters.
There are so many scenes in this movie that stand out to me. The beginning scene-a panoramic view of the bedroom of Christopher Robin-reminded me of my own childhood belongings. The scene where Kanga speaks to Roo at bedtime reminds me of the innocence I used to have at a young age, and the innocence I think we all tend to overlook or dismiss as "immaturity", when in fact it seems we'd all be better off retaining it. The obvious excitement Tigger has upon seeing his *masqueraded* "family", and the crushed blow it deals to his emotional high when it's revealed it was all an act, however well-meaning. Such a magnifently produced film, full of scenes that are filled with relevancy instead of pop-culture one-liners and sidekick-stealing shenanigans.
All in all, this is a tremendous movie. It's a perfect movie to suit whatever your mood is, whether depressed, sad, neutral, happy, etc-with friends, family, or by yourself. It's a timeless film about hope, love, and above all else, being a true friend. What more could a person ask for? Highest recommendation for anyone of ANY age.
To sum it up, Tigger, who has always found pride in being "the only one," is starting to feel some of the effects of being an endangered species. As far as he can see, there's no one in the 100 Acre Woods who shares his interests, which are mainly bouncing. All the while, Roo is constantly trying to show Tigger that HE is every bit as bouncy. But Tigger is soon obsessed with the idea of finding HIS family. He searches through his treehouse, but finds nothing more than an empty locket. Roo suggests he write a letter to his family, and when he does, Roo, Owl, Pooh, Eeyore, and Kanga write him a reply, signing it, "Your Family." Rabbit is too busy preparing for winter to get involved. But the plan to cheer Tigger up backfires immediately. When Tigger recieves his reply, he is suddenly convinced that his family is coming for a visit!
Well, any more info would spoil the movie for you. Let's just say that it is a wonderful film, in the spirit of the original Pooh movie. The only part that might not fit is a decidedly flashy and modern sequence where Tigger describes how his family might be. We see Tiggers in the roles of people such as Marilyn Monroe and Jerry Springer. True, that one scene is a bit odd to see in a Pooh movie, but this is in fact, The TIGGER Movie, and Tigger IS a bit odd. Ha ha. And this sequence is soooo entertaining that I wouldn't think of suggesting that it be left out of the film! The music in the film was written by the Sherman Brothers, so of course, it is perfect. When I first saw this film I was a bit uncomfortable with the modern sound of one of the songs as it played in the credits, but it is a beautiful song nonetheless, even if it was sort of reminiscent of some Savannah Smiles, seventies type music. It really grows on you. By the way, for anyone who has said otherwise, this animation did NOT look like television quality, it was much better than that! Sure, it was less high tech than the usual stuff we see nowadays, but thank goodness in a Pooh movie! The story was handled very well, and the classic characters were honored far better than in Pooh's Grand Adventure, the Search for Christopher Robin. That wasn't horrible, but it shows how much better and more worthy of the big screen the Tigger Movie is. This film definitely belongs in everyone's DVD collection, and there are some nice extras on the DVD too. There are two games, the Kenny Loggins music video for the movie, and some other nice items. Nothing as overwhelming as the extras on the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh DVD, but still nice. If you are a fan of Tigger, or Pooh, pick up this movie! One of my favorite parts is when Pooh lulls the bees to sleep! Ha ha! Any Pooh movie is a great Hot cocoa on a cold evening experience, especially if you have someone to cuddle with!
