THE PLOT THUS FAR
Tigger goes looking through the hundred-acre-wood to find his family.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
I was always in the Muppets when I was younger. So, it’s hard for me to get the appeal behind Pooh outside of the original Cummings stories. I get that kids like Tigger because he’s a hyperactive creation that bounces around the depressive toy bear. However, what is his purpose? Pooh and Eeyore will eventually pull a mutual suicide and Christopher Robin will grow up. However, what does it all mean for Tigger? That’s the question that this film dares to answer.
The film focuses on Tigger’s quest to learn more about himself. Tigger has been curious about his family recently, and is now looking for his family tree. He prances around with his buddy Roo in search of his family before he decides to write them a letter. Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, and Kanga worry about Tigger being letdown by his family’s no-show when they see he has thrown a party for them. So they all dress up like Tiggers to make Tigger feel loved.
The Blu-Ray comes with featurettes, bonus shorts, music video, activities and a DVD copy. The 1080p transfer is pretty sharp, with a DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track that makes all the channels come to life. For a film that seemed unnecessary at first, Disney has really pulled out all of the stops. It still pales in comparison to the recently released Winnie the Pooh flick. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
