In the heartwarming live-action adventure Christopher Robin, the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and lovable stuff 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. (Coming Soon)
When we’re younger, it’s impossible impossible to conceive of losing our way in life.
Everything seems so clearcut and certain, and insulated by the coundless optimism of youth from life’s vagaries and contrariness, it’s almost impossible to imagine not following through on each and every aspirational decision we make.
But life goes, gets in the way, trips over hazards and falls down a hole, and suddenly we find ourselves miles from home and unable to get back.
That’s when you need friends, well, if you’re a grown-up Christopher Robin at least, like Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit and Kanga to return the many favours given to them and come and help you find your way back to who you were and what matters most to you now.
The trailer to Christopher Robin is loaded with poignancy, joy and melancholic regret … and quite happily, and heartwarmingly, the possibility that it’s possible to retrace your steps and get back to what it was that made life such a sweet and lovely place way back when.
Christopher Robin opens 3 August. UK 17 August and Australia 20 September.
