Disney releases a new CHRISTOPHER ROBIN featurette that has the cast talking about growing up with Winnie the Pooh.
Most of us have grown up knowing who Winnie the Pooh is, whether it be in the original books by A.A. Milne, or in the Disney cartoons of Winnie the Pooh and his friends, maybe from a Disney ride, or the many toys and stuffed animals that are Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, or all the rest. But now we get to see Winnie the Pooh and all the rest of them in a new and adorable way in Disney’s live-action film, Christopher Robin.
The movie stars Ewan McGregor as the now grown-up Christopher Robin, the one who spent his childhood with Winnie. Christopher now has a wife, Evelyn, who’s played by Hayley Atwell, and they have a child of their own, Madeline, played by Bronte Carmichael.
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. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasures in life once again.
