Everyone’s favorite stuffed teddy bear is back, and this time around, he is back in the full, live-action film, Christopher Robin. Coming relatively soon after the film Goodbye, Christopher Robin — which followed the life of Winnie the Pooh writer A.A. Milne — this one sets itself apart by actually following the character of Christopher Robin decades after his adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Up until now, we’ve had some posters and a teaser, but nothing that gave us a full idea of what we can expect from a live-action Winnie the Pooh film. However, as was hinted at in that teaser, this looks to be a nostalgic and heartwarming tale that the whole family could enjoy — assuming that it lives up to the warmth portrayed in the trailer. After helping Pooh reunite with his friends, Christopher Robin heads off back to his workaholic life, and Pooh sets out to “save” him — with a little help from his daughter.
Below is the official synopsis for Christopher Robin:
In the heartwarming live action adventure Disney’s Christopher Robin, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his band of lovable stuffed animals in the Hundred Acre Wood is now grown up and living in London but he has lost his way.
