Relaxed Screening: Christopher Robin

Marc Foster

Disney have been busy revamping their classic animations for live action over the past few years to great success, with the likes of The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, but rather than a straightforward adaptation of a previous film, Christopher Robin comes with a twist: the titular character is all grown up and it’s up to Winnie the Pooh and the gang to bring some wonder and imagination back into his life.

"We defy you not to be charmed by Pooh and his friends.” 

Winnie the Pooh’s best friend Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) is struggling to balance working life with spending time with his wife Evelyn (Hayley Atwell) and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). Suddenly, when he is least expecting it, he is reunited with a certain honey-loving stuffed bear who urges him to venture once again into the idyllic Hundred Acre Wood. Things don’t go exactly according to plan, and soon, Pooh and his friends leave the forest and find themselves in bustling London. With Jim Cummings (who’s voiced Pooh for Disney since 1988) returning as the iconic bear, as well as Tigger, we feel just like Christopher Robin meeting our old friends again.

Despite looking a little tattered, the whole gang is back, with some spiffy new voice actors to boot, from Piglet (Nick Mohammed) and Rabbit (Peter Capaldi) to Owl (Toby Jones) and everyone’s favourite down in the dumps donkey, Eeyore (Brad Garrett). We defy you not to be charmed by Pooh and his friends as they remind Christopher Robin of the adventures they had together, and the importance of having fun.
