Christopher Robin

Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin team up in international poster

Today we saw the reveal of a new international poster (via Imp Awards) for The Walt Disney Studios‘ upcoming movie Disney’s Christopher Robin.

Once again, I can’t help but be hit by pangs of nostalgia. Maybe it’s because I’m slowly reaching that point where adulthood is finally taking me away from a lot of the things I enjoyed as a child or maybe it is for another reason. All I know is watching Winnie the Pooh hand a grown up Christopher Robin a balloon makes me want to tear up. Do you feel similarly?

The official synopsis for the movie is below:

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.
