New photos from Disney's 'Christopher Robin' are super cute
New photos from the 'Christopher Robin' movie show the beloved denizens of the Hundred Acre Wood adjusting to the real world.
Disney has revealed new photos from the upcoming live-action Winnie the Pooh movie 'Christopher Robin'. The pictures showcase everyone's favourite yellow bear along with his companions Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet.
A trailer for the movie was released earlier this year.The film is expected to take viewers on a nostalgic trip back to the Hundred Acre Wood with a now-adult Christopher Robin, played by Ewan McGregor.
“In those older stories," McGregor said, speaking to EW. "[Christopher Robin] purveys a lot of wisdom through the way he deals with Pooh. Pooh and Eeyore run through a lot of philosophical questions, and Christopher Robin is there to answer them somehow. And I think, largely, he’s just lost any of that childish wisdom and he’s a bit stuck. He’s just very work-minded and doesn’t have any time for play. I suppose that’s what the film is about: finding his relationship with his younger self again.”
The pictures show Pooh taking a walk with Robin and sunbathing at the beach with his friends. The artwork on the animated characters has a distinctive antique feel to it with the animals being portrayed as beloved childhood toys that have been rediscovered after years of neglect.
The film is set after World War 2 with Christopher Robin having grown into a family man who struggles with the stress of his job and his experiences as a war veteran.
The movie is expected to show the life of toys that have gone from being beloved childhood friends to unused junk, much like the Disney-Pixar movie 'Toy Story'.
Of course, Robin won't be the only one reconnecting with his childhood as the movie already has a large following who are eagerly awaiting its release. Jim Cummings, who has been the voice of the adorable little bear since 1988, has been confirmed as the voice actor for Pooh while Nick Mohammed, Brad Garrett and Chris O’Dowd will lend their voices to Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger respectively.
