EWAN MCGREGOR: Plays the titular character, a grown-up Christopher who once spent his childhood playing with his friends. He clearly brought out the true character in all the emotions & frustrations & delivered strong characterisation in the balance roles.
BRAD GARETT: Excels as the pessimistic Eeyore.
STORY: The story is an adaptation from the 1928 book The House at Pooh Corner by author A.A. Milne. The story takes off from the end of that book when young Christopher is about to leave for boarding school and his childhood friends Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore throws a parting party. Christopher grows up gets too busy with work forgets his friends, young daughter and wife regret his actions.
DIRECTION: Marc Forster has stamped his own trademark on a nostalgic very familiar story.
CHRISTOPHER ROBIN (2018): The film is an attempt by Disney to display most loved animated characters of yesteryear’s into live-action riffs with great dedication. The film depicts true regret and longing and conveys the importance of friends and family and wish we cherish those who are very close to our heart. The feel-good movie with a feel-good ending is more or less with an eye on sub-genre expectations.
