Disney has released the teaser trailer for Christopher Robin, director Marc Foster’s fantasy inspired by author A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh.
The film stars Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin, who as a child embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his stuffed-animal friends. Now, however, he’s all grown up, mired in a thankless job, and completely disconnected from the playful boy he once was. But then Winnie the Pooh re-enters his life.
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.
McGregor is joined by Hayley Atwell as Christopher Robin’s wife Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline; and Mark Gatiss as his boss Keith Winslow; with the voices of Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh; Chris O’Dowd as Tigger; Brad Garrett as Eeyore; Toby Jones as Owl; Nick Mohammed as Piglet; Peter Capaldi as Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
Christopher Robin will hit theaters soon.
