Listening to Winnie The Pooh soundtrack makes me want to see the movie again. Yes, I’ve seen Winnie the Pooh and I loved it. That Willy Silly Nilly Ole bear is the most adorable teddy bear around. And the soundtrack is so Good. Why? Well one fantastic edition to the soundtrack is Zooey Deschanel. Zooey has been in quite a few tv shows on the SciFi channel. I just adore her. Who knew she could sing? I guess Disney knew!
Actress/Musician/Singer/Songwriter Zooey Deschanel (“Almost Famous,” “(500) Days of Summer”) joins Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood, performing three songs for the film, including her own take on the classic “Winnie the Pooh” theme song, “A Very Important Thing to Do” and the original end-credit song “So Long,” which was written by Deschanel and performed with She & Him bandmate M. Ward.
“This has been one of the most fun experiences that I’ve ever had,” says Deschanel. “And I’ve just been thanking my lucky stars that I was able to work on this movie, because it’s delightful.”
Filmmakers were drawn to Deschanel’s signature style. “She was the perfect choice to do the ‘Winnie the Pooh’ song—a classic theme from the Sherman Brothers,” says director Don Hall. “Her music actually embodies the underlying spirit of the movie. We’re taking something that has vintage roots in the sixties, but spinning it in our own way and updating it. If you listen to Zooey’s music with She & Him—that’s their sound to a tee.”
Winnie the Pooh Soundtrack comes to audiences July 12th. You have the chance to win a copy of the CD here.
