How many people grew up reading and hearing about the adventures of a yellow bear in a red shirt, a tiny pint piglet and a tiger with a tail like a spring? The answer would have to number in the millions, and millions more rediscovered the Hundred Acre Wood when they introduced their own children to the beloved cast of Winnie the Pooh. In between loving Pooh themselves as children and returning to his stories as parents, most people lost track of the unforgettable residents of the Hundred Acre Wood. Disney’s new movie, “Christopher Robin,” tells the story of what happens when Christopher Robin himself has all but forgotten Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and all the other inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood.

With a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry, Tom McCarthy and Allison Schroeder and a story by Greg Brooker and Mark Steven Johnson, “Christopher Robin” follows a grown Christopher Robin who is now the head of a working class family but has lost his sense of joy, imagination and adventure. Trapped in his own life, Christopher Robin feels like the whole world has turned against him. In the Hundred Acre Wood, things are not perfect either. Some of Pooh’s friends are missing, and he needs Christopher Robin’s help to find them. Pooh might be exactly what Christopher Robin needs as well in order to rediscover his imagination, sense of joy and the playful spirit he had as a child.

“Christopher Robin” stars Ewan McGregor as the titular character of Christopher Robin. Hayley Atwell and Bronte Carmichael portray, respectively, Christopher Robin’s wife and daughter, and Mark Gatiss plays Christopher Robin’s boss, Giles Winslow. Jim Cummings voices two of the characters from the Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh and Tigger, while Nick Mohammed acts as the voice of Piglet, and Eeyore is voiced by Brad Garrett.

This summer, rediscover the joys of childhood alongside some of the most beloved children’s characters of all time. ““Christopher Robin” opens in theaters everywhere on Friday, August 3, 2018. Check out the trailer online now, and reconnect with the Hundred Acre Wood this weekend.
