Disney has an adorable featurette online to promote their film Christopher Robin which is set to hit theatres on August 3, 2018.
We are just a few days away from Christopher Robin’s theatrical release. Directed by World War Z’s Marc Foster, with a screenplay by “Hidden Figures” writer Allison Schroeder and writer-actor-director Alex Ross Perry. The film will bring the timeless honey eating bear, Winnie The Pooh to the big screen starring Ewen McGregor as grown-up Christopher Robins.
This reminds me very much of Hook, starring Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman, and Winona Rider in a tale that saw a grown-up Peter Pan return to Never-Never Land to reconnect with the Lost Boys.
Below is the official synopsis for Christopher Robin:
“In the heartwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” 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 remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
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, and he 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, a spark is rekindled, and he is reminded of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing could be considered 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 into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.”
