Today (February 11) marks two decades since Tigger was the star of his own film: The Tigger Movie.
Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, and with characters created by A. A. Milne, The Tigger Movie was initially intended to be released direct-to-video. The animated musical film was a follow up to 1977’s The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which was actually a collection of previously released featurettes, making The Tigger Movie the first original feature-length Winnie the Pooh film.
In the film, Tigger is lonely and goes searching for other Tiggers like him and to find his family. Roo joins him on the journey and he learns along the way that family is not always blood related – friends can be the family you never had but always wanted. The message of The Tigger Movie is well worth remembering and is something which children and adults can relate to.
