In Disney’s Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh is reuniting with his long lost friends while bringing along an entirely fresh take on the classic children’s tale.
The film tells the story of the titular Christopher, who is now all grown up and has lost all sense of wonder and imagination, as he struggles under the weight of his responsibilities to both his work and his family.
He eventually crosses paths again with Pooh, who asks for Christopher’s help in finding Tigger, Piglet and the rest of the gang from the Hundred Acre Wood.
In return, their heartwarming journey reintroduces Christopher to the fanciful wonders of the world he enjoyed when he was a child.
The film looks to combine a more serious tone with the nostalgic and comedic appeal of the original series. Pooh himself seems to be a bit more battered and worn-out, but otherwise still retains the same innocence and kindness that he’s known for.
The film will also explore one’s transition from childhood to adulthood and the things that are lost and found in the said journey, something that we, the pvblic, could definitely relate to.
Disney’s Christopher Robin stars Ewan Mcgregor in the title role, with Jim Cummings continuing his long-time work as Pooh and Tigger, along with Brad Garett (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) as Eeyore and Rabbit respectively.
