Ewan McGregor’s heartwarming ‘Christopher Robin’ movie is out now – watch the trailer!

Christopher Robin arrives in cinemas this month, from the director of Finding Neverland.

Disney’s new fantasy comedy-drama film is inspired by A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh books.

Not to be confused with last year’s Goodbye Christopher Robin, the movie is set in 1940s England and tells the story of an adult Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor).

Christopher Robin is out now in the US and is released in the UK on Friday 17 August.

Watch the trailer:

The official synopsis reads: “In the heartwarming live action adventure, 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.”

The film also stars Hayley Atwell (Howards End) as Christopher Robin’s wife, and features the voices of Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh, Chris O’Dowd as Tigger, Brad Garrett as Eeyore, Toby Jones as Owl, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
