Fans of the timeless honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh rejoice! The first trailer for Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action and CGI film Christopher Robin is out and it looks to be everything we’ve hoped for and more. Taking a turn from the House of Mouse’s animated classics live-action remakes (Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, Pete’s Dragon), the story is an original in which a grown-up Christopher Robin, overworked with little time to devote to his family, must reconnect with his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood so that he can find himself again.
Ewan McGregor (fresh off his award-wining turn in FX’s Fargo) plays the titular role with Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as his wife and supervisor, respectively. The all-star voice cast includes longtime Winnie the Pooh voice actor Jim Cummings, Chris O’Dowd (The Clovefield Paradox) as Tigger, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Brad Garrett (Finding Dory) as Eeyore, Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who) as Rabbit, Sophie Okonedo (Hellboy) as Kanga, and Toby Jones (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Owl. Christopher Robin is slated to hit theaters this summer on August 3, 2018.
