Are you ready for a return to the Hundred Acre Wood of your childhood? Disney has released a new sneak peek with a few extended scenes focused on the adventuring spirit in Disney’s Christopher Robin, which bounces into theaters on August 3. The movie stars Ewan McGregor as an adult Christopher Robin who is brought back to the world of his childhood by his favorite toy – Winnie the Pooh.
I love that we get a look at more of the characters from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. The movie looks very cute and the character designs are spot on. Close enough to the original ‘stuffed animals’ to seem authentic, but real enough to feel like they belong in the world too.
