Disney continues its line of live action remakes with Christopher Robin. Ewan McGregor stars as a grown-up, stressed-out Christopher working in the city and distracted from his family, until a visit from an old friend sets him on a new path. Foregoing the brightly coloured look of the old Disney cartoons and taking influence from the style of EH Shepard’s illustrations from the AA Milne books, Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and friends look heart-meltingly adorable as scruffy, well-loved toys. With a trip back to 100 Acre Wood for Christopher, and in return a visit to the real world – that being post-war London – for Pooh and friends, there’s plenty of family-friendly adventure here, and certainly less darkness than some of Disney’s other live action remakes.

However the full movie turns out it will most likely produce warm, fuzzy, nostalgic childhood feelings at some point, although for older viewers more familiar with Peter Dennis’s audio books there may be a slight jar. Pooh is voiced by Jim Cummings, the original voice actor from the Disney cartoons. Some fans online do have a problem with the American-voiced Winnie over the British version, but as others pointed out, it could be worse – it could have been James Corden.
