The adventures of Christopher Robin and his lovable bear Winnie the Pooh were my favorite as a child. My mom read the books, and I loved watching Disney’s Winne the Pooh cartoon series. As an adult, I couldn’t be more excited that Walt Disney Studio has created a live-action film of Christopher Robin.
In the heartwarming adventure, the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
Grown up, Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter. Christopher has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie-the-Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, their friendship is rekindled, reminding Christopher of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing was considered the very best something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger, step out of the forest and venture into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.
Christopher Robin releases in theatres on August 3, 2018.
