Disney Interactive is releasing two new games for kids, ages four and up: Piglet's Big Game for Game Boy Advance and Piglet's Big Game CD-ROM. Inspired by Walt Disney Pictures' upcoming animated feature film, Piglet's Big Movie, both titles place Piglet, one of the most beloved characters from the Hundred Acre Wood, front and center in his very own interactive adventure. The movie opens nationwide March 21.

Piglet's Big Game for Game Boy Advance and Piglet's Big Game CD-ROM provide youngsters with two different gameplay options. Playing as the "the little pink guy" in both titles, boys and girls can explore enchanting environments with Piglet and his friends, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl and Eeyore.

Piglet's Big Game for Game Boy Advance is a fun-filled adventure that has the "Very Small Animal" rescuing his friends from their bad dreams. As the residents of the Hundred Acre Wood settle down to go to sleep for the evening, they begin having nightmares. Pooh dreams that his honey is gone, Rabbit sees his harvesting machine is broken, Roo imagines his ball is stuck in a tree, and Eeyore has lost all of the color in his dreams. It is up to Piglet to save the day by helping his friends find the missing pieces that will turn their bad dreams into good ones. Filled with five different dream missions of age-appropriate and engaging gameplay, kids will have a blast delving into this exciting escapade.

Piglet's Big Game CD-ROM is a humorous quest in which children can help Piglet find the ingredients for the big soup that Rabbit is making to share at a celebration with all of their friends. Throughout the adventure, kids can explore the Hundred Acre Wood while solving brain-teasing puzzles that assist in sharpening their spatial, organizational, strategic and creative thinking skills. In addition they can participate in four mini-games for additional fun and laughs.

"Piglet's Big Game captures the spirit and fun of the film while creating another new adventure for one of the treasured characters from the Hundred Acre Wood," said Bob Picunko, director of marketing, Disney Interactive. "Piglet is a timeless character and a perfect addition to our interactive products based on the world of Winnie the Pooh."

Piglet's Big Movie brings "the little pink guy" to center stage for a story of friendship and appreciation as the gang from the Hundred Acre Wood learns that it doesn't take somebody big to do important things. Piglet gets that inferior feeling when his friends begin a "honey harvest" and told that he's too small to help. When Piglet disappears, his pals Eeyore, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, and (of course) Winnie the Pooh use his scrapbook as a map to find him -- and in the process discover this "Very Small Animal" has been a big hero in a lot of ways. After an eventful search and a dramatic climax, Piglet once again demonstrates how large an influence he has been on his pals.
