Disney have another Winnie the Pooh flick on its way, but it isn’t animated and doesn’t completely revolve around the “hunny”-lovin’ bear. Instead, as the title suggests, it’s about Pooh’s boy, Christopher Robin.
Actually, he’s a man now, with all the weight of family and work responsibilities. However, one day he runs into his childhood pal, Pooh, and is asked to help the bear find his lost friends in the Hundred Acre Wood.
The cast is pretty sweet, with Ewan McGregor as the titular Mr. Robin, Hayley Atwell, Mark Gatiss and the voices of Jim Cummings (Pooh), Chris O’Dowd (Tigger), Toby Jones (Owl), Brad Garrett (Eeyore), Sophie Okonedo (Kanga), Nick Mohammed (Piglet) and Peter Capaldi (who’s no stranger to animated bears, although here he gives voice to Rabbit).
Christopher Robin is due in cinemas later this year.
