To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the beloved Disney classic, The Tigger Movie, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment presents a new, two-disc edition DVD. Available on August 4, 2009, The Tigger Movie 10th Anniversary Edition weaves magical storytelling, charming characters and memorable songs into an endearing tale of adventure and heart. The DVD includes a plethora of bonus material including two new-to-DVD Tigger adventures plus a ‘DisneyFile’ Digital movie copy. Providing consumers with unprecedented quality, value and portability, this enables viewers to enjoy the film in iTunes or Windows formats.
Set in the Hundred Acre Woods, The Tigger Movie 10th Anniversary Edition features Tigger and the gang ( Roo, Rabbit, Piglet, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, Christopher Robin) in this musical tale of friendship and adventure. Tigger sets off on a journey to find other “Tiggers” who he could call his own family after feeling left out while the gang prepares for a gloomy winter. Through his adventures, Tigger realizes that families come in all shapes and sizes, and even though they look different, the Hundred Acre Wood friends, are his true family. Originally released in theatres in 2000, The Tigger Movie, is the best-selling pre-school DVD of all time. (Source: Nielsen, 12/08). The Tigger Movie 10th Anniversary Edition includes all of the beloved bonus features from the original edition plus two all new-to-DVD episodes from the popular TV series “The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

This 10th Anniversary Edition of The Tigger Movie hardly sets an exciting precedent for other theatrically-released DisneyToon Studio features to get revisited. It returns to stores with a list price $10 above the price-dropped original release and adding only two “New Adventures” episodes and a digital copy. Most will consider the episodes more cause for excitement than the portable copy, but even those could have been better presented. At least everything from the original DVD is retained (save for the superior sing-along), which means that if you wanted to own the movie, this is your best and now easiest bet.
And, though it might come as a surprise to you, The Tigger Movie is a winning movie that’s well worth owning. In Disney’s vast Pooh canon, only the original featurettes and some of the “New Adventures” are better. This sweet, fun outing wins over all ages while staying true to the spirit of Milne’s work as filtered through Disney animation. This movie is worth picking up for those who don’t already own it.
