The silly old bear finds a new home

Friday, 14th July 2006 at 14:29

Deep in the hundred acre wood, a whole new enchanted neighbourhood has just been created. The new adapted version of Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Too opened for previews at the Fantasy Festival Stage yesterday, with a totally reworked show placing more emphasis on musical numbers, scenery and effects.,

The theatre itself has been decorated with branches and leaves covering the lighting equipment above the stage, plus woodland murals on the side walls, totally enveloping guests in the Hundred Acre Wood. The show now also includes a solo musical number from Winnie, a rainbow adventure and a Heffalump musical number.

Rumours of Pooh Bear’s move to the smaller, indoor theatre began spreading last year, with the possibility of a year-round show adapted for each season (Halloween, Christmas, etc.) strongly rumoured. The new show was confirmed by Katie Harris of Disneyland Resort Paris Entertainment in Annual Passport magazine “Envie de +” on 4th January 2006. Today, the new show begins its first season, but it is already scheduled to return for Disney’s Christmas Season from 11th November 2006 to 7th January 2007.

You can see a full run-through of the new show on a new guide page at dlrp.co.uk » The site also has a 9-minute video, giving a good impression of the style of the adapted show. Video »
