Concept Art For The New Winnie The Pooh Movie

Here are three entrancing concept art designs from the upcoming Winnie the Pooh feature. I’m looking forward to this picture a great deal, and feel really rather lucky that the UK will get it into release in April, some months ahead of the US.

These were drawn by Burny Mattinson, a Disney Pooh veteran who served as the head of story on this film, and coloured by Paul Felix.

They appear to come from the chapter “In which Eeyore loses a tail, and Pooh finds one”, which I believe was already animated in the 50s. I’m surprised to see it being done-over, but I’m sure they know what they are doing.
