Just a couple months ago a teaser trailer for Disney’s Christopher Robin was released. The teaser caught everybody by surprise with how heartwarming it was. Well the studio released the first full trailer for upcoming live-action/CGI film via The Ellen Show and it looks just heartwarming as the first.
Below you can check out the official synopsis for the film:
“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.
Christopher Robin played by Ewan McGregor is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter, and he has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. 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 and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing could be considered something. 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.
Jim Cummings returns as the voice of Winnie the Pooh, and will also be returning to voice Tigger. Replacing Chris O’Dowd as Tigger, Brad Garrett as Eeyore, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, Toby Jones as Owl, and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
Hayley Atwell plays Christopher Robin’s wife, Evelyn, and their daughter Madeline is played by Bronte Carmichael. Mark Gatiss plays Giles Winslow, Christopher’s boss. Christopher works for a luggage company. The film takes place in 1940s London when Christopher returns home from World War II.
The film is directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland).
Christopher Robin hits theaters on August 3, 2018.
