Disney’s latest adaptation of our favourite bear with a big heart will surely captivate every person in the theatre with its well-rounded plot, nostalgic scenes from the original animation to the good old days of childhood where all that matters is having fun.

Christopher Robin is a part live-action and part animated “sequel” to the classic story of Winnie the Pooh, wherein the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood, is now grown up, living in mid-century London and dealing with the stressors of adulthood. As an efficiency manager at Winslow Luggage, he juggles long hours in the office with his commitments at home and has all but forgotten the endless days of wonder and make-believe that defined his childhood.

After cancelling plans to go away with his wife, Evelyn, and daughter, Madeline, in order to work through the weekend, he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh and his old friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, remembering the times when doing nothing with a best friend was the very best kind of something. But as Christopher Robin returns to London to address financial problems at the company, some important work papers from his briefcase go missing, and the animals decide that it is up to them to save their friend.

Following a chance encounter with Madeline, Christopher’s young daughter, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet leave the forest and take an excursion into the city to hand-deliver the documents to the offices of Winslow Luggage, surprising Christopher Robin. As a result of their efforts, he begins to see things from a fresh perspective and comes up with a plan to save the company as well as his job, and in the process rediscovers the joys of family life, the value of friendship and remembers to appreciate the simple pleasures in life once again.

The film realistic designs of Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, Roo and the saddest donkey that ever graced the silver screen, Eeyore, may not be pleasing in the first glance but as the movie went on, it brought certain adorableness on all of the characters that definitely made sense for bringing the stuffed animals to life as three dimensional characters. It made the characters blend with different environment, may it be a muddy forest or a London flat – it brought new light to the characters we used to love as kids.

Ewan McGregor’s representation of the old Christopher Robin really pull us out from the seats and took us on a rollercoaster of laughs, sentimental longing and tear-jerking moments.

Christopher Robin is now showing in Philippine cinemas nationwide.
