Winnie the Pooh comes to life in the ‘Christopher Robin’ trailer

Walt Disney Pictures, via Ellen, today debuted the full trailer for director Marc Forster’s upcoming “Christopher Robin,” inspired by the works of A.A. Milne and his “Winnie the Pooh” books. Check it out in the player above!

Written by Tom McCarthy, Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder, “Christopher Robin” is officially described as follows:

In the heartwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter, and he has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, a spark is rekindled, and he is reminded of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing could be considered something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, step out of the forest and into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.

Golden Globe nominee Forster previously directed a left-field take of another iconic English story, “Peter Pan,” with “Finding Neverland.” Academy Award winner Tom McCarthy (“Spotlight”), Alex Ross Perry (“Golden Exits”) and Oscar nominee Allison Schroeder (“Hidden Figures”) share the writing credits. In addition to multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Ewan McGregor (“Fargo”) as Christopher Robin, Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell (“Agent Carter”) stars as his wife Evelyn, Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline, and Emmy winner Mark Gatiss (“Sherlock”) portrays Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. The film also features the voices of Jim Cummings (“Winnie the Pooh”) as Winnie the Pooh; Chris O’Dowd (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”) as Tigger, three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett (“Everybody Loves Raymond”) as Eeyore, Toby Jones (“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”) as Owl, Nick Mohammed (“The Martian”) as Piglet, Peter Capaldi (“Doctor Who”) as Rabbit, and Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo (“The Secret Life of Bees”) as Kanga.

“Christopher Robin” hits theaters August 3, 2018.
