Pooh will be voiced by the versatile Jim Cummings, who also provides the voice of Tigger.

The story takes place over the course of a single day, which begins, as usual, with the "silly old bear" going in search of honey. His search gets sidetracked when gloomy Eeyore (Bud Luckey) loses his tail and his friends decide to help him find a new one.

The adventure continues when Christopher Robin (Jack Boulter) briefly departs the Hundred Acre Wood, leaving behind a note saying "Back soon"...

...which Owl (Craig Ferguson) misinterprets as meaning Christopher Robin has been captured by a vicious beast called a "Backson."
