Are you ready for a trip back to the Hundred Acre Wood? If your name is Christopher Robin, probably not — even though out of us all, he’s the one who most desperately needs a trip back to his roots.
Disney’s latest live-action movie isn’t a remake of an animated classic, or even a retelling. Rather, we’re picking up with Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, and the rest of the gang some time after adult Christopher Robin has moved on with his life and seems to only be doing (boring) adult things. In dire need of a break from the stress of the real world, and in search of some new direction, Christopher Robin and Pooh embark on a journey to once again bring a bit of wonder into both of their lives. We’re invited along too, of course — that is, if you can handle all the intense childhood #feels.
Crying already? Christopher Robin is sure to be a tearjerker, but there’s no time for tears right now. Ahead of the movie’s release, HelloGiggles has an exclusive video of Christopher Robin himself, Ewan McGregor, answering some beary important about his friends and heffalumps.
You (and whatever friends you decide to bring along — real or stuffed) can find out for yourself what makes the movie so special when Christopher Robin hits theaters on August 3rd.
