A new 'Christopher Robin' teaser is here to keep your hearts warm over this July 4 weekend: Watch
A retake of the classic story based on A. A. Milne's books, Disney's live-action 'Christopher Robin' stars Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Jim Cummings, and Chris O’Dowd.
It's about time Disney brings out its big hype machines! With just around a month left until the release of the live-action adaptation of the Christopher Robin and Pooh saga, the mouse house studio has finally dropped a second teaser video, leaving fans of the Disney classic all warm and mushy.
Captioned, "some friendships last a lifetime," the 30-second-long clip is sure to take fans on a trip down memory lane, especially with scenes of a young Christopher and his ever loyal friend, Winnie the Pooh. What begins as a childhood bond between the two iconic characters and eventually transforms into a lifelong friendship, and all the emotions in between takes center-stage in the TV spot, which cannot come at a more opportune moment than the Independence Day weekend.
"Everyone grows up, everyone moves on. But some friendships last a lifetime," the 'Christopher Robin' teaser video begins, with the narrator's voice filling the background, as footages of the key life events of Pooh and Ewan McGregor's Disney character, Christopher Robin, starts rolling. The footage that came just ahead of the July 4th celebrations, surprisingly, happens to be the only video released from Disney - save some brief teasers here and there - after the full-length trailer that was debuted back in June.
Supposed to be a retake of the classic story based on A. A. Milne's books, Disney's live-action 'Christopher Robin' also stars Hayley Atwell, Jim Cummings, Chris O’Dowd, Toby Jones, Peter Capaldi, and Brad Garrett, alongside McGregor. The film - due release in August - will also have Marc Foster, of 'Finding Neverland' fame, serving as the director, using his own spin on the adventures of Pooh and Christopher as they navigate through adulthood.
"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," reads a synopsis of the plot.
"Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future... 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... 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."
Disney's 'Christopher Robin' arrives in theaters on August 3.
