Our favourite honey-loving tummy-rumbling bear is back on the big screen. Get excited for new movie Christopher Robin by revisiting Pooh and all his friends from the Hundre Acre Wood.
About the movie
Christopher Robin follows Pooh’s human friend Christopher, who is now all grown up with his own family. But just like Pooh Bear, he seems to be forgetting something… his imagination! Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore bring Christopher Robin back to the Hundred Acre Wood to help him find it again.
Did you know?
Christopher Robin was a real person! The author of the original Winnie the Pooh books named the character after his son, Christopher Milne, and Pooh and his friends are all based on Christopher’s real-life toys! The original toys are now all on display in the New York Public Library in the USA.
Grown-up Christopher Robin is played by super Scottish actor Ewan McGregor! You might remember Ewan from playing Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast or young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars flicks. Christopher Robin’s wife Evelyn is played by Hayley Atwell who first found fame as Peggy Carter in Captain America.
Pooh gets a makeover
Pooh won’t look like his usual yellow self in this movie – he’ll be computer animated to look just like a real-life teddy bear. He still has the same voice though, so you can be sure it’s him!
What a star!
Winnie the Pooh is so famous that he has his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Pooh received the honour in 2006, and his best pals came along to celebrate with him.
