Trailer: Winnie the Pooh

I had barely paid attention to the fact that there was a new Pooh movie coming out this summer until I was sitting in the lobby of a movie theater reading and found myself completely distracted by this trailer. Holy effective use of a song, Batman.

Seriously, I keep tearing up. But Keane-induced nostalgia aside, I'm curious to see how this reboot does - it's obviously aiming for the adult audience, with the careful traditionalism and John Cleese narration, but will kids like it as well, or will it be too quiet and understated to hold its own against Cars 2 and whatever other animated fare is hitting theaters this summer? Let's hope the extant Pooh merchandising empire is enough to carry it through.
