Christopher Robin “Legacy” Featurette
In Disney’s heartwarming live action adventure, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood has grown up and lost sight of what’s important in life. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.
“Christopher Robin” is directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder and a story by Perry based on characters created by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. The producers are Brigham Taylor and Kristin Burr, with Renée Wolfe and Jeremy Johns serving as executive producers. The film stars Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin; Hayley Atwell as his wife Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline; and Mark Gatiss as Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. The film also features the voices of: Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger; Brad Garrett as Eeyore; Toby Jones as Owl; Nick Mohammed as Piglet; Peter Capaldi as Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
So what’d you think?
The more I see teasing Christopher Robin, the more I’m excited to see it. I really don’t think this is a movie that is going to have massive surprises in it. I do think it will be a movie with massive heart. It’s going to be a family-friendly film that will just help people fall in love with the inhabitants of the hundred-acre wood all over again. I personally can’t wait for this movie to come to theaters, and for the merchandise that hopefully comes with it! What did you think of this featurette? Are you excited for this movie?
