Knock, knock! Any fans of Winnie the Pooh out there? The honey-loving bear is back on the big screen, in Disney's latest live-action movie, Christopher Robin. And Winnie is not alone. He is joined by his old gang of friends, Iggy, Tigger and Piglet. Christopher Robin is directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace, Monster's Ball, The Kite Runner) and stars Ewan McGregor in the lead. Jim Cummings returns to voice Winnie the Pooh.
While the movie's main attraction is about Winnie the Pooh, the movie is about Christopher Robin, who as a child befriended Pooh at 100 Acre Wood. But Robin is all grown up now and is played by McGregor. The first official trailer has been launched during The Ellen Show, and it hints at a sweet movie that takes us back to the childhood joys. As an adult Robin reconnects with his old pal Winnie, it is a moment for all of us who have grown up watching Winnie the Pooh cartoons or read his books, to feel a sense of nostalgia. Check out the trailer here -

Christopher Robin also stars Hayley Atwell and Mark Gatiss, while Chris O'Dowd, Brad Garrett, Nick Mohammed, Peter Capaldi and Toby Jones voice Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Rabbit and Owl respectively. Here's the official synopsis - "Christopher Robin, the little boy from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, is now all grown up, and has lost all sense of imagination. Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood re-enter Christopher's life to help him find it again".
Christopher Robin is scheduled to release on August 3.
