Disney recently released the official trailer for Disney’s Christopher Robin! The official trailer adds so much more to the last, starting with Christopher and Pooh.
The scenes of Pooh and young Christopher playing are almost heartbreaking when you remember that he’s older and miserable in his demanding job. We see an older Christopher asking Pooh what he’s doing in the city. Honestly, who wouldn’t be confused and shocked if their childhood stuffed animal friend joined them on a park bench!
Pooh tells him that he needs help finding his friends. Christopher ends up following the silly old bear through a tree trunk and into the Hundred Acre Wood. That’s when it happens: we get a first look at Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, and Roo! Although they’re a bit aged from years of play, our Hundred Acre Wood friends are in great shape. They sound like their old selves, and they’re also still incredibly adorable!
Christopher picks up Eeyore and soon all of his old friends greet him with excitement. It’s a major “aww!” moment. Once Christopher leaves, Pooh and his friends realize he needs them now more than ever. What’s the best way to help their oldest friend? Go back to the city of course!
When they arrive, Madeline, Christopher’s daughter, stumbles upon them. She recognizes her father’s old friends immediately and wonders why they’re there. Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet let her know about their mission, and Madeline eagerly tells them that she knows where to find her dad. They’re off to find Christopher together. But will Christopher be able to find himself?
The Hundred Acre Wood looks so peaceful, and the trailer makes it seem like the perfect place to let go of all the problems that come with adulting. If you’re overworked like Christopher, it might be time for you to relax. Take a moment, or two minutes, and head back to the Wood with Christopher Robin.
