New ‘Christopher Robin’ Poster, Trailer Reunites Old Friends

Share on Pinterest

Disney released a new poster for the latest in its string of reimagined classic stories: Christopher Robin. We get our first look at Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore, who we haven’t seen in their animated form until now. The beloved characters are brought to life as they would appear as toys in Christopher Robin’s childhood bedroom.

The film, releasing on August 3, stars Ewan McGregor in the title role as he’s all grown up, with his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood coming to find him in the adult world.

The cast is a who’s-who of Disney veterans. McGregor recently played Lumiere in 2017’s Beauty and the Beast remake. Co-starring are Hayley Atwell (Captain America‘s Agent Carter) as Christopher Robin’s wife, Evelyn; Brad Garrett (whose previous Disney work includes voices in Finding NemoTangled, and Planes) as the voice of Eeyore; and Jim Cummings reprising his signature role as the voice of Winnie the Pooh (because let’s be honest, NO ONE ELSE could play him!). Not included on the poster but also part of the cast are Chris O’Dowd as the voice of Tigger and Nick Mohammed as the voice of Piglet.

This comes following the trailer debut in March.

A second trailer will premiere Friday, May 24, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

UPDATE: The new trailer is here! Check it out.

    I still can’t decide if this looks good or not.

      It’s starting to look promising, but no guarantees.

      I feel the same way. Character designs are what is bothering me the most as well as not being excited in a long time for Pooh related content.

  • Harith Sami

    The gang is all here, still not a fan of Winnie’s and Tigger’s designs, I know they want to stick close to the original source material, but the Disney look is more iconic and known now. Tigger looks like a senior here. Too fuzzy.

      This would make more sense if it was an all CGI product by Walt Disney Animation.

  • I think I’m warming up to the new look for Pooh and the gang! I mean they look so much like the original book design and they just feel like their counterparts, I think it works so well and seeing that new trailer, I am really hoping big things!! :DD

  • Manuel Orozco

    The character designs are okay. The new trailer has me less skeptical but still in the mixed bag if I want to see this movie!
