I received the movie for review. All opinions are my own. Today, Disney’s Christopher Robin is out to buy. This is one of my favorite movies this year, and I am so excited it is now available to own so I can watch it with my kids over and over again. It is heartwarming, funny and one your family will enjoy for many years to come.
Last week, while I was in L.A. for the red carpet premiere of Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, part of a day was spent in the “100 Acre Wood” (actually in the Arboretum) but we were able to meet and interview Jim Cummings, who does the voices of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger. This was a really fun experience. We also had a picnic and got to do a flower arranging class. It was such a fun morning!
I have already broken out our copy of the movie and we have enjoyed not only the film but also all of the bonus features. We also enjoy watching the behind the scenes stuff, seeing how it was made, and learning more about the history of the movie. I think it also creates a deeper appreciation for the film in my kids.
Today, Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.
This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories will transport parents back to the imaginative, carefree days of childhood and allow them to share their love of Pooh and friends with their own children. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says director Marc Forster. “We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.”
Bonus features provide a heartfelt look at the making of “Christopher Robin,” showcasing the magical artistry that brings the classic characters to life, the human actors’ techniques for interacting with stuffed animals, and the filmmakers’ passion for their project. Bronte Carmichael, who plays Christopher Robin’s daughter Madeline, takes viewers on an exciting journey from the drawing board to film locations throughout the United Kingdom. Features flash back to highlight Walt Disney’s fondness for Winnie the Pooh and recall the voice actors who lovingly portrayed the unforgettable voice of the iconic character. An exclusive digital bonus feature explores the actual teddy bear, given to Christopher Robin Milne 98 years ago, which inspired the original Pooh stories that have been shared and adored by families around the globe.
“Christopher Robin” is packaged and released in several different formats, giving families the flexibility to watch the film on a variety of different devices. Viewers can instantly watch the film in Digital HD and SD, and bring home a physical copy of the film as a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy) or a single DVD.
