Holy Jim Cummings news and interviews, Batman! (Winnie the Pooh media tour Mega-Post)

So, um, as you may have noticed… There have been more interviews and articles about Jim Cummings in the last week then in the entire last year. And I, your mild manner cult leader, am having some trouble keeping up while still maintaining the rest of my life. 

I have decided to handle this thusly: a mega post. Here is a big ole list of some of the news and interviews and other goodies that have come up since I last updated you…

Firstly, here are a few that I shared on Facebook on Twitter on Friday but never got a chance to add to the blog.

I shared this on the social networks already as well but I wanted to highlight this on it’s own little row because it’s a big fat hairy deal: Jim Cummings was on The Late Late Show with Craig “the new voice of Owl” Ferguson this past Friday. If you missed it, you can catch the full episode here. (Jim is near the end). There’s an unofficial video that’s just the clip of Jim Cummings here but I don’t know how long it will be up before it gets taken down. To quote @shallow15, “Did you see Jim Cummings on Craig Ferguson last night? He killed! And earned the Golden Mouth Organ.”

Now for the stuff that I didn’t share on Friday…

But how is the movie, you ask?

  • It’s got an overwhelmingly positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes
  • The California Literary Review says, “Jim Cummings, however, takes the prize for his leading role. The task of preserving Pooh’s one of a kind tone and manner of speech, made famous by the late Sterling Holloway, is a staggering one, and Cummings (who also plays the spirited Tigger) does it so well that Winnie the Pooh is the only character who sounds just as he did almost fifty years ago. “
  • RT @ToddEdwardsFilm Winnie the Pooh is excellent. A rare throwback to classic Disney, with a surprisingly sharp script. Congrats to Jim Cummings & all involved.

Whew! Have I missed any? Leave em below.
