Stunning Puppets Revealed for Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation
This fall, a stunning new adaptation of a beloved Disney classic is set to delight audiences in New York for the first time. Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation is an all-new reimagining of the Disney movies, using the characters and stories first brought to life by A.A. Milne.
For the first time ever, photos of the incredible puppets which have been created for the musical have been shared. Each crafted by the renowned Rockefeller Productions and their team of master puppet creators, we can’t help but admire these adorably impressive character creations.
The first puppet pictured is Winnie the Pooh himself, looking adorable and curious with a visiting butterfly. We can see from the photo just how fluffy the puppet Pooh is, and can’t help wanting to reach out and give him a big bear hug!
Above, we can see the pink puppet Piglet, as well as the actor playing Christopher Robin.
Next up is T-I-GG-ER! That spells ‘Tigger’!
Due to popular demand for this highly-anticipated new production, a new block of tickets was recently released on sale to the public. Performances will start on October 21st this Fall, at Theatre Row in Times Square, New York.
The next photo shows Eeyore, who looks so hopelessly dopey with his big ears and fuzzy fur. I wonder whether he is looking for his tail?
Above we can see the motherly Kanga, and of course little Roo. We can see from the picture that Kanga has quite a large pouch, and we wonder if Roo will hop out mid-performance? Plot specifics are yet to be released for this musical, but we’ll be sure to expect many of our favorite classic tales to feature.
Last up is the wise old Owl, with beady eyes and impressive feathers atop his head. We wonder who he was lecturing as he posed for this photo?
As a firm lover of Winnie the Pooh myself, I am so awestruck by how detailed and lifelike these puppets appear. We can’t wait to hear more about Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation, and will be sure to report all the production news on MickeyBlog.com!
