Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin Movie, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet

Released just in time for the September school holidays is Christopher Robin. In keeping with Disney tradition, this is a movie full of heart and simple humour, following the loveable characters of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Owl, Eeyore, Rabbit, Kanga and Roo as they help a grown up Christopher Robin rediscover his inner child.

Set in the post war era, Christopher Robin has grown up with a family of his own and he has lost touch with what is important. He’s lost, and his sense of imagination is long gone. At just the right time in his life, Christopher’s childhood friend Pooh appears in need of help. But all of Pooh’s friends are missing. Christopher must venture back to the Hundred Acre Wood and help Pooh find his friends.

Produced by Brigham Taylor, with Jim Cummings reprising his role voicing Winnie the Pooh, Ewan McGregor plays the lead role of Christopher Robin. It’s a story that sparks the childhood magic in all of us and transcends age with its innocence. There will be tears of sorrow and joy, with bursts of laughter during its bittersweet story line.

Release Date: 13 September 2018
