Winnie the Pooh celebrates shared 95th birthday with the Queen in new animation

Winnie the Pooh pays tribute to the Queen in a new animation released to celebrate the fictional bear’s 95th anniversary and the same birthday milestone reached by the monarch this year.

The 45-second clip, titled Winnie The Pooh And The Royal Adventure, sees Pooh travel from the Hundred Acre Wood to Windsor Castle with friends Christopher Robin, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore to deliver a special present for the Queen.

The group give her a giant pot of honey attached to 95 colourful balloons.

The short film will also feature a brief glimpse of the Queen and celebrate the stories’ themes of “timeless charm, friendship and simple joys”.

October 2021 marks 95 years since the publication of the first Pooh book, while the Queen turned 95 on April 21, four days after the funeral of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at Windsor Castle.

Pooh first met the Queen five years ago in the story Winnie The Pooh And The Royal Birthday, which marked their shared 90th birthdays.

“The themes of friendship and simple pleasures are more relevant than ever 95 years on and we’re delighted to share this new tale to help fans celebrate his milestone birthday.”
