Bear essentials at ‘Pooh’ premiere

Disney screens animated pic in L.A.

Don Hall talked about his lead actor going cold turkey at Sunday’s premiere at the Walt Disney Studios. “I don’t think anybody loves honey as much as Pooh. I think he’s a borderline addict,” joked the co-helmer, with Stephen J. Anderson, of “Winnie the Pooh.”

Henry Jackman, the pic’s composer, was afraid technology might catch up with Pooh. He breathed easier after seeing the animated pic. “I was thinking, God, I hope they haven’t radically contemporized him now, you know, Winnie the Pooh’s hanging out in a car park with an iPod,” said Jackman.

Tom Kenny, voice of Rabbit, said that he also looked back in time a bit to find his inspiration. “I was thinking who’s fussy and still likeable and I thought Jack Lemmon,” he said.

Alison Sweeney, Constance Zimmer and Busy Philipps brought their kiddies to the midday afterparty, which included drawing lessons from a Disney animator and pin-the-tail-on-Eeyore.
