Perennial family favorite Winnie the Pooh returns to theaters this Friday in Disney’s new traditionally animated film of the same name. Pooh Bear is back with all of his friends in the 100 Acre Wood, getting into mischief and looking for honey. It’s a very sweet family film that will make a great first theater experience for many children and manage to keep parents engaged without indulging in any double entendre.
Last weekend I sat down with the songwriters to discuss how they kept the lyrics G-rated after working on Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon, how they break up the songwriting duties, the cable news inspiration for some of the songs and more. Hit the jump to watch.
Finally, if you’d like to watch some clips from Winnie the Pooh. click here.
