Get your tissues ready! The new teaser for Disney’s live-action Christopher Robin has been released and it is beyond adorable.
The bear we all know and love, Winnie the Pooh (voiced by the legendary Jim Cummings), reunites with his owner, Christopher (Ewan McGregor). But this time, Christopher is grown up, busy with work, and not having time for his family. In the tease, we see Christopher having to cancel his weekend plans with his family because his boss, Giles Winslow (Mark Gattis), persuades him to stay.
As Christopher thinks about his decision of whether or not to stay and work or spend time with his family, his best friend from the past comes back to help him...
Directed by Marc Foster (Finding Neverland), Christopher will have to rediscover his inner child and have Pooh help guide him to remember the kid he once was. The film will focus on themes of positivity and friendship -- there are no better two words to describe Winnie the Pooh themes! Also starring in the film are Haley Atwell as Christopher’s wife and Bronte Carmichael as his daughter.
The story cannot be complete if we do not have all of our favorite characters from Hundred Acre Wood! Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Rabbit, and Kanga will also be part of this adventure. We hope they all can come together to help Christopher regain his imagination and purpose. Though times have passed, the memories remain, and we’re excited to see Christopher reconnect with his child-self and adventures.
Christopher Robin will come out in theaters on August 3! We can’t wait to see the first full trailer so we get to know more about this story!
