Disney Looks Back in the Enchanting Christopher Robin Teaser

Disney Looks Back in the Enchanting Christopher Robin Teaser

On Monday, Walt Disney Studios tweeted out the first poster for Christopher Robin, and announced that the debut trailer would be released online on Tuesday.

Next up in Disney's baffling - but undeniably successful at the box office - live-action remakes of their classic animated film library is Christopher Robin. However, Christopher Robin isn't an actual remake, so it may not be expected to do quite as much business as something like Beauty and the Beast.

Here's the official synopsis: "In the heartwarming 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".

McGregor plays a now-adult Christopher Robin with some very grown-up problems when he meets a familiar friend.

In the teaser, we see Christopher Robin working at a luggage company in postwar London under a demanding boss (Mark Gatiss) that forces him to cancel his weekend outing with his wife and daughter (Hayley Atwell and Bronte Carmichael). The voice cast includes Jim Cummings (Winnie the Pooh), Nick Mohammed (Piglet), Brad Garrett (Eeyore), Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Kanga) and Wyatt Hall (Roo). Christopher Robin is directed by Finding Neverland helmer Marc Forster with a screenplay written by Spotlight's Oscar-winning Tom McCarthy, Hidden Figures' Oscar-nominated co-writer Allison Schroeder, and Alex Ross Perry. Still, Disney has proved that they know how to churn out a hit in recent years and there's no reason to think that Christopher Robin is going to be any different. The producers are Brigham Taylor ("The Jungle Book") and Kristin Burr ("Ice Princess") with Reneé Wolfe and Jeremy Johns serving as executive producers.
