“CHRISTOPHER ROBIN” HAS GROWN UP
FIRST TRAILER FOR LIVE-ACTION WINNIE THE POOH FILM RELEASED
Being an adult is hard, especially today and it seems like Disney knows how to address not only our issues, but the next generation of children entering adulthood.
When the live-action film for Winnie The Pooh was announced (called Christopher Robin) the following synopsis was given:
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.
In the trailer we see Christopher Robin all grown up with a family of his own and facing the typical working dad dilemma: balancing his stressful work life with his home life. We see him stuck at the crossroads of should he do what his manager says versus look out for the well being of his co-workers. It also looks as if his family is suffering due to Robin’s stress.
In a move to captivate the audience’s heart, Winnie The Pooh magically appears in Robin’s world, perhaps to remind Christopher Robin of the joys of life (even as an adult).
The film is directed by Marc Forster (World War Z) and stars Hayley Atwell (Christopher Robin’s wife Evelyn) along with Bronte Carmichael as Christopher Robin’s daughter Madeline. Mark Gatiss is Robin’s boss Keith Winslow.
The animated characters are played by Jim Cummings (Winnie The Pooh), Chris O’Dowd (Tigger), Toby Jones (Owl), Nick Mohammed (Piglet), Peter Capaldi (Rabbit), Sophie Okonedo (Kanga) and my favorite voice of Brad Garrett (Eeyore).
Christopher Robin releases August 3rd, check out the trailer below:
