The nostalgia Nazi in me wanted to hate this, but I don’t. in fact, something about the connection between Pooh and Ewan McGregor on screen has pretty much instantly won me over, even if this does still feel like a brand swap on Robin William’s Hook. It also definitely helps that Jim Cummings is reprising his role as as Winnie the Pooh. Rounding out the cast is Hayley Atwell as Christopher’s wife Evelyn, Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline, and Mark Gatiss as Christopher’s boss Keith Winslow and features the voices of ; Chris O’Dowd as Tigger; Brad Garrett as Eeyore; Toby Jones as Owl; Nick Mohammed as Piglet; Peter Capaldi as Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
In the heartwarming “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.
