The newest incarnation of Winnie the Pooh comes out this week. Last night, Disney celebrated the world premiere of Christopher Robin at the Walt Disney Studios lot. This event wasn’t just a movie premiere though, it also was a dedication to two men who are synonymous with Disney music. The orchestra stage where the music to many classic Disney movies was dedicated to the Sherman brothers. This is where the soundtracks to Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, and Winnie the Pooh were recorded. The historic studio is now called Sherman Brothers Stage A.

The event was a beautiful celebration of Disney’s newest movie, Christopher Robin, and the composers who brought so many of these characters to life musically. Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael, Jim Cummings and Brad Garrett were on hand with director Marc Forster and celebrity guests John Stamos, Alison Sweeney and Lesley Ann Warren for this special evening. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and the Disneyland Band also were on hand for the event.
