Fox Searchlight recently dropped a couple of promo photos for its upcoming biopic, “Goodbye Christopher Robin” (formerly known as the “Untitled A.A. Milne Project”).
Starring Domhnall Gleeson (“About Time”) as “Winnie The Pooh” author A.A. Milne, the highly anticipated biopic is set to release on 10th November 2017, just in time for awards season.
“Goodbye Christopher Robin” offers a rare glimpse into the relationship between Milne (played by Domhnall Gleeson) and his son, Christopher Robin (played by Will Tilston), whose stuffed animals inspired the magical world of “Winnie the Pooh”.
Along with his mother Daphne (played by Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (played by Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?
The teaser images feature the movie’s main characters in full costume. In one of the photos, Gleeson can be seen teaching Tilston to shoot an arrow. Meanwhile, another photo shows Robbie laying her head on Gleeson’s shoulders.
Although Robbie’s new role is less action-packed than usual, we’re excited to see her play a mother and wife.
See the teaser photos in the gallery below:
Directed by Simon Curtis (“My Week With Marilyn”), “Goodbye Christopher Robin” also stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Mary Brown, Geraldine Somerville as Lady O, Alex Lawther as the Older Christopher Robin, and Stephen Campbell Moore as Ernest.
