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 Nemo, Tangled, 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.
