In today’s post, we’ll be talking about Christopher Robin Release Date and Cast. In this movie, we see an adult Christopher Robin played by Ewan McGregor (Star Wars, Trainspotting) to be visited by Winnie the Pooh in a live-action setting, a movie that was directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Finding Neverland)
Disney’s latest trend to try and bank on old characters has served them well for over half a century. This film was made in quite the British way, for it tells the story of how Winnie The Pooh and Christopher Robin live and deal with each other as Robin comes of age and stops being a boy. Imagine what would happen to Piglet, Tigger, and Winnie the Pooh in the live action setting of a British drama of Toy Story. The movie is sure to touch the heart of kids and adults alike.
Christopher Robin Plot And Cast
Director Marc Forster, a man that has given us action titles such as the James Bond Quantum of Solace movie and his 2004 Finding Neverland, this film seems to accompany a world of real life and imagination of a famous British author. The film is quite the proof that A.A. Milne was wise in limiting his characters for short stories rather than to full-length works.
The story begins with a young Christopher Robbin telling his toys that he is no longer a kid, he intends to grow up and see another part of life that doesn’t involve playing with toys. Seems a little bit sad but everybody goes through that phase, and Christopher Robbin heads for boarding school. The ambiance and time setting of this movie is set during the Second World War. Christopher (Ewan McGregor) survives to join a London luggage company as a manager of some sort.
He also got married and had a wife, Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), and a daughter, Madeline ( Bronte Carmichael), his job responsibilities get the best out of him because he does not spend time with his family. But Christopher ironically insists to his family that the more he works, the better time they will have for a weekend in Sussex, but the promise of a weekend for taking a break is taken away because he has to work.
Evelyn thinks that there’s another woman barging in their matrimony but it just so happens that her husband is with Winnie the Pooh. He happens to roll out of his tree house on this particular morning to find himself in the park across from Christopher’s London apartment, which in short order he makes a mess of upon the offer of some honey.
