Christopher Robin Trailer Is A Much-Needed Shot Right In The Nostalgia

Oh, bother.


Are you ready to revisit your childhood? The first trailer for Christopher Robin--Disney's latest live-action take on its animated universe--has arrived, as the studio puts a Hook-like spin on Winnie the Pooh and his animal friends that were created by AA Milne.

In the trailer, a grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) has become so dedicated to his work that his family is suffering. "What to do?" he wonders to himself before Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings) appears behind him. While Christopher questions whether he's gone insane, a peek at the movie's official synopsis confirms he is not.
