Disney’s live-action tale of the adorable stuffed bear and the now grown-up man who loved him just debuted the first teaser trailer. Disney has unveiled the first trailer for Christopher Robin featuring Ewan McGregor as the adult Christopher. The one minute trailer also introduces this film’s version of Winnie the Pooh, voiced once again by Jim Cummings. Cummings previously voiced Winnie the Pooh in Doc McStuffins, Mini Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, 2011’s Winnie the Pooh, My Friends Tigger and Pooh, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, and The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
The live-action adventure was directed by Marc Forster (All I See is You, World War Z) from a script by Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder, from a story by Perry. The characters, of course, are based on A.A. Milne’s beloved characters. Christopher Robin was produced by Brigham Taylor and Kristin Burr. Renée Wolfe and Jeremy Johns served as executive producers.
The live-action cast includes McGregor, Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) as his wife Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael (Darkest Hour) as his daughter Madeline; and Mark Gatiss (Game of Thrones) as Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. In addition to Jim Cummings, the actors lending their voices to the CG animals include Chris O’Dowd (The Cloverfield Paradox) as Tigger, Brad Garrett (Fargo) as Eeyore, Toby Jones (Wayward Pines) as Owl, Nick Mohammed (Uncle) as Piglet, Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) as Rabbit, and Sophie Okonedo (The Hollow Crown) as Kanga.
The Plot: In the heartwarming live action adventure, 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.
