Pooh vs. Potter – New Movies This Weekend
Two classic book characters come alive at Parkwood 18 this weekend- One a box office heavyweight and one just a silly ol' bear with a glandular problem.
With 11 screens being sold out for the Midnight showings at Parkwood 18, the Potter finale is sure to rule the cash flow this weekend, but who thought Disney would put up a film to stand agaisnt it? Winnie The Pooh returns with a wonderful new story.
The final "Harry Potter" is a lot more action-packed than "Deathly Hallows Part 1". Dumbledore is gone, the Ministry of Magic has fallen, Voldemort is about to lay siege to Hogwarts, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione are still running for their lives. The new one is the only "Harry Potter" to be filmed in 3D.
"Winnie the Pooh" (G)
John Cleese is the narrator, and you'll recognize Craig Ferguson as the voice of Owl. You'll want to pay attention to Rabbit's voice too. He's played by Tom Kenny, the guy who's the voice of "Spongebob Squarepants". Pooh and Tigger are both done by a gentleman named Jim Cummings, who's been doing them for over 20 years. As a sidenote, he was also the voice of Darkwing Duck back in the '90s.
