Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Winnie the Pooh….. I can sing a long in my head and feel such a warm happy feeling from childhood. I’m looking forward to seeing the past come to the future and see Christopher Robin rejoin his good friends.
In the heartwarming live action adventure Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the young boy who embarked on
countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals,
has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help
Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
Now grown up, Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an
uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his
wife and daughter. Christopher has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded,
honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie-the-Pooh, now tattered
and soiled from years of hugs and play, their friendship is rekindled, reminding Christopher of the endless
days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing was considered the
very best something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the
rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger, step out of the forest and venture into London to
return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.
