Disney is on a tear this week the teaser trailers! Disney’s Christopher Robin now has its official bit of footage and it’s pretty divisive, in my opinion. The film is directed by Marc Forster, and stars Ewan McGregor as an older, more cynical Christopher Robin who has long since left the Hundred-Acre Wood, but will rediscover joy as he meets up with his old pals.
Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends are rendered in realistic CGI using their stuffed toy forms, which is jarring, but the soothing nostalgic voice of Jim Cummings as Pooh certainly gave me goosebumps. Christopher Robin is set to hit theaters on August 3rd.
