Are y’all ready to re-enter the magical world of “Winnie the Pooh”?
Inspired by real life events, “Winnie the Pooh” creator A.A. Milne’s upcoming movie, “Goodbye Christopher Robin“, shines the spotlight on the author’s relationship with son and his love for toys.
The official poster, which was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, exudes a sense of nostalgia. Both parent and child are shown walking hand in hand, but in this case, it’s the son who is holding Winnie the Pooh in one hand. On the right side is the familiar London scenery while the left side holds a hint of Hundred Acre Wood.
The official synopsis for “Goodbye Christopher Robin” reads:
“The movie gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (played by Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (played by Will Tilston), whose toys 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?”
Joining the aforementioned cast are Phoebe Waller-Bridge as Mary Brown, Geraldine Somerville as Lady O, Alex Lawther as the Older Christopher Robin, Stephen Campbell Moore as Ernest, Nico Mirallegro as Cooper, Vicki Pepperdine as Betty, Richard McCabe as Rupert, and Shaun Dingwall as Alfred.
“Goodbye Christopher Robin” will hit UK cinemas on 29th September and US cinemas on 10th November.
