Christopher Robin Trailer Brings Winnie The Pooh To The Real World

Get your tissues ready: the first full trailer for Ewan McGregor's Christopher Robin is here, and it will bring tears to your eyes. The film features McGregor as a grown-up Christopher Robin, who has lost his imagination and prioritizes his work over his family. That all changes when his old friend Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings) reenters his life, helping him find his happiness once again. 

The trailer starts with a young Christopher, who promises Pooh that he'll never forget about him, "not even when I'm 100." Flash forward to the future, though, and it seems that Christopher has broken his promise, as he ditches a planned weekend with his family to stay at work. "Your life is happening now, right in front of you," his wife, Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), tells him. 

Christopher's life is thrown for a loop when Pooh shows up. As it turns out, the bear needs his help, having lost all of his friends. Christopher rejoins Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood, although he nearly gets stuck in the tree traveling there. "Have you just eaten honey?" Pooh asks him. "I have not just eaten honey," Christopher replies.

"I wonder which way," Christopher wonders as they get into the Wood. "I always get to where I'm going by walking away from where I have been," Pooh replies. Eventually, the group finds Eeyore (Brad Garrett), Piglet (Nick Mohammed), Tigger (Chris O'Dowd), and the rest of the gang. "I was wrong about work, I was wrong about everything," Christopher realizes. However, as much as he'd like to stay, he realizes that he has to get back to his family. 

"I wish it could have gone on for a while longer," Pooh says. "Perhaps it's our turn to save Christopher." That adventure brings Pooh and his friends out into the real world, where they team up with Christopher's daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael) to help Christopher find the fun in life again. "People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day," Pooh says. "Pooh, that's not the... never mind," replies Christopher.

Christopher Robin is directed by Marc Forster (World War Z) based on a script from Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), Alex Ross Perry (Queen of Earth), and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures). Mark Gatiss, Toby Jones, Peter Capaldi, and Sophie Okonedo also star in the film, which is set to hit theaters on August 3.
