Winnie the Pooh is coming back to the big screen this summer in Disney’s Christopher Robin, and the first full length trailer for the film has finally been released online.
Christopher Robin stars Ewan McGregor as the titular character, who has grown up and grown apart from his friends in the 100 Acre Wood. Now that he’s been bogged down with the stresses of life and the real world, Christopher’s old pals have returned to help remind him of who he once was.
This means that Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, and many other characters from the animated franchise will be making their way to our world in the film. Instead of remaining cartoons in the real life, like in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, these characters will be walking, talking stuffed animals when they appear to Christopher.
