Experience a fun-filled celebration of friendship in the beloved Pooh tradition with this special 10th anniversary edition of The Tigger Movie. Share the excitement with all your friends from the Hundred Acre Wood as Tigger sets off on an amazing adventure. He s hoping to find fellow tiggers to play with, and along the way, he ll discover something even more remarkable: the true meaning of family. Featuring original songs by the award-winning Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), plus two new-to-DVD Tigger stories, this timeless Pooh classic will bounce its way straight into your heart.
Though not as great as the original “Pooh” cartoons, The Tigger Movie is a magical, gentle addition to the Winnie the Pooh franchise. The story centers around comic relief character Tigger, and his search to find others of his kind. It turns out that being the only one is not all it’s cracked up to be. When the other residents of the Hundred Acre Wood, lead by a well-meaning Roo, write a letter to Tigger from a fictional “family” of Tiggers, Tigger thinks it’s all working out perfectly. Unfortunately, the charade can’t go on forever… and it all leads to a thrilling snowy climax at the edge of the Hundred Acre Woods.
Tigger Movie is a story about belonging… about being part of a family. The message of this heartwarming film is that your family consists of those who love you as well as those who look like you. Everyone can belong, and the bonds of friendship are stronger than steel.
Kids will relate to the wonderfully acted Roo, and parents and adults will appreciate and be touched by this tale of courage, loyalty, and love. The animation is much like that of the original cartoons, and the backgrounds are beautiful. The film’s songs were written by the Sherman Brothers, who wrote the original Pooh tunes.
