Director Marc Forster helmed this live action movie that features English author A. A. Milne’s best loved characters as walking and talking stuffed animals. Ewan McGregor stars as a middle-aged Christopher Robin, now burdened by an stultifying white collar job that prevents him from spending quality time with his family. Winne the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger venture from Hundred Acre Wood into London to turn his life around.~Augustine Chay
Christopher Robin, the character of the Winnie The Pooh books who entered the Hundred Acre Woods to visit his friends is grown up now, and he's left his childhood friends behind...until life presents a moment in Christopher's life where his friends can help him remember what is important.
Ewan MacGregor does a fabulous job as the grown up Christopher Robin, having survived WWII, married with a little daughter, and a stressful job that threatens to tear his marriage and home life apart. The story has all the feel of the original Winnie the Pooh films and cartoons and it is a film well worth watching with family.
This movie gave me all the feels and yesss— I laughed, I cried, and of course— I grew up to Winnie the Pooh so my expectations were high. I’m glad this live version shocked and awed me in the best possible way I highly recommend!
When I saw this movie in a theater last year, I enjoyed it very much. I like Ewan McGregor, and he was very good as the grown-up Christopher Robin who is so busy with his job that he's not enjoying his life and his family. The voice actors who portrayed Pooh, Eeyore, and the others did a fine job, especially for those of us who remember the Winnie the Pooh cartoons. I bought the Blu-ray rather than the DVD because it had some extra features that I knew I'd like about the making of the movie. With a movie like this that combines live actors with animated stuffed animals, it's interesting to find out how things were done so effectively. This is a sweet and fun movie. It reminded me a little of those other Disney films about Mary Poppins, who also straightens out fathers who need to lighten up and pay more attention to their children.
Great motion picture with lots of magic.
Chris Robin grows up to find out the
real world is not as a fairy tale.
Tries to raise daughter to face the real
world,however, special friends help in
Not easily found in tangible form for
a good price.
I always enjoyed the Winnie the Pooh characters as a kid. This movie tells the story of an adult Christopher Robin dealing with life's struggles. It is a sweet movie that makes you feel good at the end. I would recommend this movie for somebody looking for a sweet family film
Interesting return to the Pooh franchise. The spirit of the characters is all there, though it seems a touch out of place with Christopher Robin as an adult. But don't let that deter you from the movie.
I would recommend this to a friend
