Christopher Robin

For the kid (i.e. me) who grew up being decked out in all Pooh things in school out of sheer love for the pants-less bear, this A.A. Milne piece is still something clearly remembered:

“Wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
There's always Pooh and Me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
'Where are you going today?' says Pooh:
'Well, that's very odd 'cos I was too.
Let's go together,' says Pooh, says he.
'Let's go together,' says Pooh.”

So sue me for crying a little while watching the trailer. I can't wait to cry in the theater for real.

It'll always seem like a cheat when a film plays the 'nostalgia' card, but I am hopeful for this because of its promising character design (which can make or break this movie), and with Ewan Mcgregor in it. For some reason, I've always seen him as someone stuck in a time period, so it kind of does feel apt for me to see him in this. 😂
