Teaser Trailer for Disney's 'Christopher Robin' Starring Ewan McGregor
"I've cracked…" Disney has unveiled the teaser trailer for their new take on Winnie the Pooh, titled simply Christopher Robin, from director Marc Forster. Ewan McGregor stars in this as a working-class family man in London. He re-encounters his childhood friend Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life. The main cast includes Hayley Atwell, Mark Gatiss, Adrian Scarborough, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, and Paul Chahidi. For the voices: Jim Cummings as Winnie-the-Pooh, Chris O'Dowd as Tigger, Toby Jones as Owl, Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, Sophie Okonedo as Kanga, and Nick Mohammed as Piglet. This teaser only introduces us to Pooh, with more characters to come. This comparison is going to upset a few of you, but this kind of reminds me of Hook - a grumpy guy revisits his past to discover happiness again.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Marc Forster's Christopher Robin, direct from YouTube:
