Irene MckinneyMar 07, 2018

After releasing the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel Mary Poppins Returns earlier this week, Disney is back again with the first teaser trailer for the live-action Christopher Robin starring Ewan McGregor as the title character who reunites with his childhood friends, including Winne the Pooh, as an adult. Past year also saw the release of a different adaptation of Pooh, with Goodbye Christopher Robin starring Dohmnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie. This time, however, that boy is all grown up and played by Ewan McGregor, and it's been a very long time since he's seen his old friend Winnie the Pooh.

Disney's live-action tale of the adorable stuffed bear and the now grown-up man who loved him just debuted the first teaser trailer.

Disney has had tremendous success remaking and reimagining some of their animated classics, with movies like Cinderella, Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast dominating at the box office. The name "Winnie" came about because when young Christopher visited London Zoo, there was a Canadian bear named Winnipeg.

"Disney's Christopher Robin" is directed by Golden Globe® nominee Marc Forster ("Finding Neverland") and written by Oscar® victor Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight"), Alex Ross Perry ("Golden Exits") and Oscar nominee Allison Schroeder ("Hidden Figures") based on characters created by A.A. Milne.

Christopher Robin is due for United Kingdom release on August 2018. Brigham Taylor and Kristin Burr will produce with Renee Wolfe and Jeremy Johns executive producing.

Jim Cummings voices Winnie the Pooh, Chris O'Dowd voices Tigger, Brad Garrett voices Eeyore, Toby Jones voices Owl, Nick Mohammed voices Piglet, Peter Capaldi voices Rabbit and Sophie Okonedo voices Kanga.
