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.

    I remember years back when they announced this. Everyone feared Pooh would look horrifying. I haft to say that they did a pretty good job with the CGI. He looks cute. Who knows, maybe this will be a delightful surprise.

    They should’ve ended the trailer right here (image bellow).
    Because the part when Pooh moves his mouth looked really bad, many viewers including me we taken out of the trailer because of it. I know his mouth is suppose to be sowed, but the way his mouth moves when he says “Cristopher Robin” is very uncanny & creepy.

    When this movie easily makes more money than both Padington movies combined . . .

  • The coloring of the trailer confused me a bit, but now having watched it a couple times I really like this!! Just seeing Pooh made me so happy, even if he really does look a bit creepy but I think this was intentional to have him a bit raggedy
    Kinda hyped! 😀

    Pooh still looks kind of creepy to me.
