Disney’s new “Winnie the Pooh” whimwhams from book to screen, true to the text, blending beautiful, glossy-black letters, like iron icons, into the plot and the characters’ actions. There are no static characters.The dynamic characters learn the consequences of misreading a text. The academic, wise Owl plays the fool, foisting a bugaboo, mythical creature on the “Hundred Acre Wood” community. Winnie-the-pooh builds a ladder from scattered letters, and Pooh and friends climb the letter-ladder out of a pit of fallen text. Rated E: Excellent for Everyone!
