The Tigger Movie Review
I know how children love Milne’s Hundred Acre Woods characters. The lines in Critter Country WDL and Fantasyland WDW for the Winnie the Pooh ride prove it. These are the beloved creatures that kids, both young and old, identify with because they personify humanity. With this said, The Tigger Movie is on its way to becoming classic Disney fare.
The Tigger Movie directed by Jun Falkensein is an animated family film that will keep its popularity with the years. First released in 1999, the Tenth Anniversary Edition is just what it says. It is an irresistible family classic. Little ones will delight in it over and over again. John Hurt masterfully narrates as Jim Cummings provides the voice for the Tigger everybody knows and loves.
The drawings done both in America and Japanese studios are gorgeous. Its use of soft warm watercolors are reminiscent of the artwork in the books on which it is based. “The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers” brings back old memories. The new Sherman Brothers score coupled with Kenny Loggins’s collaboration on the song “Your Heart Will Lead You Home” deserves the awards it has garnered.
Christopher Robin, Winnie Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Mrs. Kanga, Roo, Owl, and Rabbit show Tigger the meaning of true friendship and family when lonely Tigger decides to search for his family tree and other tiggers too. Disruptions, accidents, and misunderstandings along the way help Tigger discover what is really important. His realization that it can be wonderful being the only one is a great message for children.
Disney has released this movie on DVD. This movie definitely has BOUNCE. Plus Disney has added two new Tigger adventures, an interactive trivia game, a matching game, and lots more. Family members will find themselves humming along and toe-tapping to its light musical songs as it provides hour after hour of pleasure to 4 to 6 year old audiences.
Take a look.
