(2018) (Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Fantasy: A grown-up Christopher Robin, mired in the pressures of adulthood, is re-taught the value of play and wonder by his childhood friends.
- Christopher Robin (EWAN McGREGOR) has fond memories of playing with his childhood pals in the Hundred Acre Wood, which he would travel to through a magic tree portal at his parents' English countryside cottage. Among his old friends were Winnie the Pooh (voice of JIM CUMMINGS); Tigger (also CUMMINGS), the excitable tiger; Eeyore (voice of BRAD GARRETT), the depressed donkey; Piglet (voice of NICK MOHAMMED), the anxious swine; and the frequently squabbling Owl (voice of TOBY JONES) and Rabbit (voice of PETER CAPALDI).
But it's been many years since Christopher was a boy. In that time, he has attended boarding school, grieved the passing of his father, married a kind woman named Evelyn (HAYLEY ATWELL), become a father to precocious Madeline (BRONTE CARMICHAEL), fought in World War II, and obtained work as an efficiency expert at a major British luggage company.
The company, though, has had its struggles turning a profit in post-WWII England. The boss, Giles (MARK GATISS), assigns Christopher the task of cutting 20 percent of the business -- i.e. trimming payroll -- and present the report to the company's chairman, Old Man Winslow (OLIVER FORD DAVIES). Feeling the pressure, consumed with work, and eager to send Madeline to bordering school to prepare her for a career, Christopher has lost his way. Then, Pooh shows up one day in a London park and tells Christopher he needs his help finding all of their old friends, who have gone missing back in the Hundred Acre Wood.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Young children will definitely be drawn to it, along with any tweens or teens who still hold these beloved characters close to their heart.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some action.
