The magic of Winnie the Pooh has lasted for generations. In the decades since author A.A. Milne introduced us to him, our favorite silly bear has captivated both adults and children with his wisdom, humor, and love of honey. Now, you can bring home that sweet magic with the release of Disney’s live-action film, Christopher Robin, available in several different formats.
Thank you, Disney, for sending my family the Blu-ray!
Why Winnie The Pooh Is So Special?
Winnie the Pooh has always had a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a child, something about that bear and his friends has really resonated with me. I think that it is the combination of childhood wonder mixed with the wisdom of age. For sure, The Hundred Acre Wood is a magical place where Christopher Robin could let his childhood imagination run wild. But there were always lessons to be learned that made all of us stop and reflect upon our own lives. This was true for me as a child and it is still true now that I’m an adult with my own kids.
Disney’s Christopher Robin
I was so excited to hear that Disney was making a live action film, “Christopher Robin”. Now, Christopher is all grown up and the magic of The Hundred Acre Wood is a distant memory. He is an adult with adult problems. But Winnie the Pooh is also in need of help and he sets out on a journey to find his old friend in London. It is a touching tale that reminds us that the magic and wonder of youth should never be far away, no matter how old we get.
Leading this talented cast is Golden Globe® winner and Emmy® nominee Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin. Other multi-award winning actors such as Brad Garrett (perfectly cast as Eeyore), Toby Jones, Peter Capaldi, Sophie Okonedo, and Hayley Atwell round out the cast. Great voice actor Jim Cummings, who has 540 acting credits to his name, voices both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too! Director Marc Forster does a great job getting all of this talent together to create a tale that will make you both laugh and cry.
