Disney has been making bank with the live-action remakes for classics like Beauty and the Beast and Maleficent. This year will see the release of the live-action film called Christopher Robin, which is based on the classic Winnie the Pooh series; and we now have an official synopsis for the movie.

Check it out:


In the heartwarming live action adventure Disney's Christopher Robin, the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

The film gas actually assembled an impressive live-action cast. Star Wars' Ewan McGregor is set to play the adult Christopher Robin while Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) looks to be playing a love interest in the form of Evelyn. Sherlock's Mark Gatiss is also attached to appear.

All the characters from the series like Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, and Kanga are also expected to make an appearance. It could only be a matter of time before we get to see what they look like onscreen. I have a feeling it's going to be all in CG, but I would also be interested if the characters were 2D animated.

Honestly, I don't know what to expect from this movie, but that just makes it all the more exciting. I may have a more solid opinion once we get the first trailer.


Christopher Robin is set for a release on Aug. 3.
