Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with "Winnie the Pooh," the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical "bear of very little brain" and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail... again.
On the cinema in July 2011.
Watch the theme song video with explanations: Somewhere Only We Know.
- I can see you're going to be rather feisty today.
- I am known for my inspiring rhetoric.
- Bluggety Blue! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
- A simple hello would do, thank you very much.
- There they are.
- Christopher Robbins!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
- We will have a contest to find a new tail for Eeyore.
Is this the place we used to love
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?
Oh, simple thing
Where have you gone...
- Yes, well, the thing to do is issue a reward,
- I beg your pardon?
- You sneezed.
- No I didn't. The word is "issue", not "atchoo".
- You must be catching a cold.
- I'll probably catch it too.
And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
- Oh bother!
So why don't we go, somewhere only we know
- Perhaps I could borrow some honey? [...] Oh, Just a taste... or a small lick, I should think.
- Silly old bear.
Somewhere only we know
FEISTY= /faɪstɪ/ Touchy; quarrelsome.
I AM KNOWN FOR XX= Everybody knows I have XX.
RHETORIC= The art of using language effectively and persuasively.
BLUGGETY BLUE!= Just a personal exclamation used by Tiger to express excitement.
WOULD DO= is enough.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH= We use this phrase with a very specific intonation (usually a low flat intonation with a quick uprise at the final word "much") when we want to express in a polite but energetic way that we won't accept an offence we just received:
- I'll help you with that.
- I can do this without your help, thank you very much (she was obviously offended by his offer of help, maybe they were already angry with each other or something).
- (grabbing the pencil) I need my pencil back, thank you very much. (this "thank you..." is not a thanks, it's just to show you are angry with the other person and you're going to get your pencil back "yes or yes".)
- Hello Annie!
- My name is Anita, thank you very much. (she was offended by the mistake)
LIKE THE BACK OF MY HAND= If you know something "like the back of your hand", you know it perfectly well. (the back of your hand is the part opposite your palm; if you are typing at the computer you can see the back of your hands, not the palms).
USED TO= To express an action or situation that was true in the past but not now anymore. In this case, he says "the place we used to love" because they haven't seen that place for a long time (not because they don't love it anymore), so the place (and the love or anything related to it) is part of the past.
ISSUE A REWARD= If you issue a reward you offer a reward, you give money as a thank-you gift for something they did for you. For example, if you are looking for a dangerous criminal, the police may issue a reward, and they'll give money to anyone who helps them catch the criminal. Or if your son gets lost, you can issue a reward so people know you'll give money to anyone giving you information to help you find him.
GESUNDHEIT= (German, meaning "health"). Sometimes used in American English to wish someone "health" after sneezing. The normal English equivalent is: "bless you".
I BEG YOUR PARDON?= (polite) We can use this phrase when we didn't understand something and want it repeated, or when we think they said something offensive or inappropriate and we pretend we didn't understand correctly.
SNEEZE= To expel air forcibly from the mouth and nose in an explosive, spasmodic involuntary action.
ATCHOO= A transliteration of the sound we make when we sneeze.
A COLD= An illness similar to flue, but much milder. To CATCH an illness is to get the viruses that cause it, so you become ill.
BOTHER!= (esp. BrE) An expression of annoyance (quite mild and polite).
BORROW= Get something from someone else.
JUST A TASTE= Let me eat/drink just a little bit (Winnie is talking about honey, because he's always thinking about honey).
LICK= The amount of food/drink you get by licking something with your tongue (for example an ice-cream... or honey). To lick is to use your tongue to get food or drink.
SILLY OLD XX= We use this phrase before the name of a person we think is foolish but we love them, so it's not an insult, it's just an emotional remark when someone says or does something silly (on purpose or not) and we just feel tenderness towards them.
OLD is used with people, things or places we love and cherish (nothing to do with age):
- That is good old George
- I'm going back to good old London.
