Just before you sit down in the darkened theater to watch the latest Winnie the Pooh movie, Disney will treat you to a new animated short titled, “The Ballad of Nessie.”
Set in the “bonny blue highlands” of Scotland, “The Ballad of Nessie” is a whimsical and colorful tall tale about the friendly Loch Ness monster, Nessie, and how she and her best friend MacQuack the rubber duck came to live in the moor they now call home. Setting the adventure into motion is a greedy land developer named MacFroogle, who decides to build a mini-golf empire on top of Nessie’s home.
The short is directed by Stevie Wermers-Skelton and Kevin Deters. Winnie the Pooh arrives July 15, 2011.
