Christopher Robin Teaser #1 (2018) *Sooner or Later the Past Catches Up With You*

In the heartwarming live-action adventure Disney’s Christopher Robin, the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and lovable stuff animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

Joining McGregor in the film is Hayley Atwell (Marvel’s Agent Carter, Captain America: The First Avenger) as Robin’s wife Evelyn, Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madelin, and Mark Gatiss as Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. Voicing the characters from the hundred acre wood include Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh, Chris O’Dowd as Tigger, Brad Garrett as Eeyore, Toby Jones as Owl, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.

Disney’s Christopher Robin is directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder and a story by Perry based on characters created by A.A. Milne. The producers are Brigham Taylor and Kristin Burr with Renée Wolfe and Jeremy Johns serving as executive producers.

The film debuts in theaters on August 3.Christopher Robin Poster

  1. I like this teaser! Maybe they showed too much of the actual bear… would have been more magical and mysterious if they had left Pooh mostly to the imagination… but this shows the power of a good ad campaign. Moments ago I was feeling disgruntled about this whole movie. With today’s technology, why not just remake the old classics with style? Why try to put twists on them, especially since we’ve seen all the twists before? But now I want to see this. I never liked Disney’s versions of Milne, I never thought they captured the charm of the characters, but this looks like it might. Can’t wait for Eyore.

    1. I thought both this and Poppins were really well-done teasers that gave absolutely nothing away. Marc Forster has done some brilliant stuff (Stranger than Fiction, Finding Neverland) and If they can hit this right and showcase how brilliant the Pooh books are, then positioning it the first week of August when we had a complete dead-zone last year, is a brilliant move.

      1. What do you make of Disney shifting IW out of May? Is it possible that they have a LITTLE faith in Solo at this point, or at least that they have not given up? Keep in mind that a Deadpool 2 that matches the first one is not a sure thing. Quality sequels are a new phenomenon, and even today they hardly happen across the board. Also, Solo will be a non- R alternative. I’ve got to tell you, I am not feeling any hate in my day to day interactions with people. Folks are going to go see this movie, and I still say the trailer looks amazing on a big screen.

      2. Disney is realizing finally its problem in having so many different well-working parts as it’s having blockbusters from different parts of their empire slam into each other and resultingly stealing money from its own pockets. Moving Infinity War up a week is smart, but it has nothing to do with Star Wars. It has everything to do with Black Panther and Deadpool. With Black Panther the #9 film domestically in 3.5 weeks, they want to keep it in the public spotlight that another film with T’Challa is only 6 weeks away, hoping to bring in a lot of the crowd for whom Black Panther was their first MCU film. Deadpool 2 may not be as good as Deadpool, but while quality may not always go up on phenom sequels, the box office DOES. I expect Deadpool 2 to break the record for an R-Rated opening and knock Infinity War out of the top spot. This buys it three weeks on top instead of two. I don’t even know if Solo is going to win its opening weekend. In my circle, TLJ so deflated enthusiasm for Star Wars and its been so little time removed from it that I don’t even know if I’m going to a midnight showing. That’s how much damage one film did to that franchise for me, and for people I know. I will definitely see it, but I don’t have any enthusiasm for it going in, nor expectations, so hopefully it’ll surprise me. I don’t think Infinity War will be a better movie than Black Panther, but I think there will be unprecedented spectacle, and I think you can expect a full IW trailer with significant Wakanda in it after this weekend sometime before Tomb Raider finally takes BP off the top of the box office. Disney knows they may have just found their new Iron Man for the next generation of the MCU and they’re not letting him out of the spotlight any time soon (they’re already prepping an aggressive Oscar campaign for the film and the last ceremony is only 72 hours old).

      3. Yes. Yes. Yes. Sigh. Of course what you’re saying is true. I just don’t want to face that SW is an afterthought at this point in Disney’s strategy for the near future.

        However… I do not know what your circle is like, but while I know a lot of people who enjoy going to see SW movies, I don’t have a single friend or family member who is invested enough in the franchise that they would stop going to see the movies even if they viscerally HATED one. Most people are more relaxed about these things than us nerds.

        Also, I have described Deadpool to some people not in the know. “A violent movie filled with vulgar humor, about a disfigured superhero who has a Bugs Bunny-like personality.” That’s a fair description, is it not? I was looked at like I was nuts, and so was the world, for allowing the film to exist. I’m not saying it won’t be HUUUUGE, just that there is room for Han Solo too.

        Of course, the film might be terrible, and/or Disney might choose not to market. The release date does draw near.

        BP was almost too good. I’m not knocking the other MCU films, you know how much I love them and look forward to them, but I thought BP was miles beyond all the others. I’m sure this will cause Feige and the MCU people to up their game, but for now, people hooked solely by BP might go to IW expecting the same level of quality, and be disappointed. All I can say is that BP is the real deal. In my highly unscientific experience people of all races, ages, sexes, and political affiliations are loving the hell out of the movie. It brought me joy, Dave, sheer unadulterated joy. Does it deserve an Oscar? Probably not for best picture, or any other top award like that. I love this kind of movie, but I would probably not give a major award to one of my beloved SW movies (maybe ESB). Call me a snob if you like, but I tend to think that the filmmaking craft shines through most honestly and purely when a film is forced to get by on the nuts and bolts acting, writing and directing, sans CGI, sans paraphernalia. But who cares about the oscars? WAKANDA FOREVER!
