There have been many animated adaptations of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, but this time we’re delving deeper into the life of Pooh’s friend, Christopher Robin. The movie, called Christopher Robin, will be produced by Brigham Taylor (The Jungle Book) and directed by Marc Forster (World War Z, Finding Neverland, The Kite Runner).

According to The Hollywood Reporter,
The story centers on Robin, the adult version of the boy who in the A.A. Milne books shares his adventures with the animals of the Hundred Acre Wood. Robin has grown out of the joyful imagination he had as a young boy and is now a businessman who prioritizes work over his wife and daughter. With his home life on the brink, the last thing his life needs is the return of Pooh, who requires his help in finding his friends again. Robin has to find a way to help both sides or risk losing everything he holds dear. The project is described as having strong elements of magical realism as it seeks to tell an emotional journey that is combined with a heartwarming adventure.
I’m interested to see the direction they’ll take with this one!
