CHRISTOPHER ROBIN has arrived, reintroducing two of the most beloved characters in children’s literature: the boy and his bear. This time, however, that boy is all grown up and played by Ewan McGregor, and it’s been a very long time since he’s seen his old friend Winnie the Pooh.
But, as the now-adult Christopher Robin soon realizes, he could use a little more magic in his life, and he still has a lot to learn from his kindly ursine companion.
“The movie is so full of joy and emotion and also of scenes that I think are very timely,” director Marc Forster (Finding Neverland) says. “[Pooh] is still as relevant today as he’s ever been. Perhaps even more so.”
