Disney’s new highly anticipated live action film, Christopher Robin is set to be released August 3rd. It features the classic characters Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eyore and Piglet. Actor Ewan McGregor stars in the film, directed by Marc Forster, (Finding Neverland) along with Jim Cummings, Chris O’Dowd, Brad Garrett and Nick Mohammed.
This new classic is set after the end of last year’s film Goodbye Christopher Robin. When he has to miss the family vacation to the Hundred Acre Woods for work, Christopher Robin gets a visit from his old pal Winnie the Pooh.
When talking about Winnie the Pooh, director Marc Forster said “He’s a mixture of toddler and old man, when you read the books and watch the animation. He has these Poohisms that land, but they are totally absurd. It always reminded me a little of Peter Sellers’ character Chauncey Gardiner from Being There.”
While Christopher Robin can talk to Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Woods pals, other adults in the real world only perceive them as stuffed animals, which adds more depth to the story.
Christopher Robin is set to become one of the classics, again. He must learn how to balance work, family and imagination while not losing touch with who he is.
“If you live to be a hundred, I hope I live to be a hundred minus one day, so that I never have to live a day without you.”
