Charming New Poster For Disney's Winnie The Pooh Film CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
It looks like Disney has another big hit on their hands with the upcoming Winnie The Pooh film, Christopher Robin. We've got a new International poster for you to check out today that offers a heartwarming look at Pooh handing Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) a bright red balloon. It's such a simple yet charming visual.
The story is set in the year is 1949, and Christopher Robin is "an efficiency manager at a luggage company, tasked with finding the resources to prevent many of his workers from being laid off. That will mean missing the vacation he has planned with his wife, Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), and young daughter, Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). They’re heading to the Hundred Acre Wood while he’s stuck in London with work, when he gets a visit from his old friend Pooh. But he’s not the same person Pooh remembers."
I saw a behind-the-scenes featurette for this film at CinemaCon recently that featured some wonderful new footage. The filmmaking team developing the film seemed to really capture the heart and spirit of Winnie The Pooh. I think fans are going to love what this movie has to offer.
Christopher Robin was directed by Marc Forster (World War Z) and it also stars Mark Gatiss as Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. As far as the voices of the characters go Jim Cummings plays Winnie the Pooh; Chris O’Dowd plays Tigger; Brad Garrett plays Eeyore; Toby Jones plays Owl; Nick Mohammed plays Piglet; Peter Capaldi plays Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo plays Kanga.
The movie will be released in theaters on August 3rd.
