One of the smaller residents of the 100 Acre Woods finally gets his moment in the spotlight in this animated feature, based on the characters created by A.A. Milne. As Winnie the Pooh (voice of Jim Cummins) and his pals Tigger (also voiced by Cummins), Rabbit (voice of Ken Sansom), and Eeyore (voice of Peter Cullen) set out to harvest honey from the hives in the forest, Piglet (voice of John Fiedler) is told he's too small to come along. Feeling like he often gets the short end of the stick, Piglet decides to strike out on his own, and when the honey hunters return, they can't find… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The screenplay by Brian Hohlfeld incorporates three of the original Pooh stories but captures none of the charm of A.A. Milne's droll voice."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Fiedler brings his trademark high-pitched squeal to the beloved, childlike Piglet. The other voice actors are just as good, with each one providing great heart and verve for their respective characters."
‑ Luke Sader, Hollywood Reporter
"Not very interesting, imaginative, or exciting."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Piglet's Big Movie complements (rather than detracts from) the much-loved originals."
‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine
"Unlike many feature length cartoons this one doesn't make any attempt to jazz up a classic tale with adult-friendly dialogue and plays strictly for kids. Most moppets should love the characters and incidents."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"A flimsy flashback-ridden tale about the importance of friendship, loyalty and the notion that size doesn't matter when it comes to tackling seemingly insurmountable issues."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Even those with a soft spot for Pooh won't find much to like."
‑ Scott Craven, Arizona Republic
"Pooh finally returns to his roots… a heartwarmingly gentle tribute to Milne that's appropriate for even the youngest viewers."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"A summer-holiday movie for very little kids."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"It may be Piglet's Big Movie, but it's a very minor entry in the Disney canon."
‑ Neil Smith, BBC
"Bother! Or, rather, why bother?"
‑ Jay Boyar, Houston Chronicle
"It's a wonderful Piglet? Maybe not wonderful, but still pretty darn good."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Piglet's Big Movie is what might be called second-rank Disney animation [but it] works, the kids will like it, and it provides a little escape from the news."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Worcester Telegram & Gazette
"Did we need another Disney flick with an anthology structure?"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"While young children are still likely to be entranced seeing their beloved characters up on the big screen, it never comes close to touching the child inside the grownups. And that's the real mistake."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
