Zooey Deschanel singing on 'Winnie the Pooh' soundtrack
“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."
That's "Winnie the Pooh" director Don Hall, speaking of Zooey Deschanel. The singer/actress will be featured on the soundtrack to the animated classic remake for the big screen, including singing the "Pooh" theme song.
Deschanel will also be contributing an original, "So Long," to the credits of the Disney flick, due July 15 in theaters. The track was co-written with She & Him co-conspirator M. Ward. She lends additional vocals to tracks “Everything is Honey” and “Pooh’s Finale.”
The soundtrack will be out on July 12: Check out a preview of the movie and the music here, in this video.
