There have been very few movies in the last couple of years that leave you with an uncontrollable urge to smile. It’s even rarer when you get that feeling from a trailer. That’s exactly what the trailers for Disney’s Winnie The Pooh reboot, Christopher Robin have achieved.
There’s a new, extended trailer out for the live-action adaptation that shows us more of the first couple scenes that reunite a beleaguered Robin with his childhood friend. It’s pretty much everything you’d hope it to be and a bit more. This continues to be the first and only Disney live-action adaptation that has gotten me excited.
Disney’s “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.
