Christopher Robin (based off of the Disney childhood stories in Winnie the Pooh) Is now a family man living in London. With adulting and life struggles at his doorstep, he receives a surprises visit from his old childhood pal, Winnie the Pooh. With the now adult Christophers help, Pooh embarks on a journey to find his friends: Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Piglet, Rabbit, Kanga, and Roo. Once reunited, the lovable bear and the gang travel to the big city to help Christopher rediscover the joy of life.
This movie really hits home for anyone who has grown up watching (or reading) Winnie the Pooh as a child. As an adult, you start to lose sight of the wonders of your imagination and really taking in how to live your life to the fullest. Hearing Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger as themselves really made this movie for me. Although piglet didn’t sound the same, I really enjoyed the person voicing his character as he was kept the same to his original self.
I was so in awe by Ewan McGregor’s performance. He really conveyed the adulthood of Christopher Robin and he really helped bring these lovable characters to life. The story with his daughter was also very touching. As parents, we forget what it was like to be kids, so this movie really shows us how to bring our selves to that kid/imagination level and really interact with our children.
Overall…such an amazing movie and I highly recommend it for kids and adults!
