DIRECTOR Marc Foster
CAST/VOICES Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Jim Cummings, Peter Capaldi
Ewan McGregor plays an adult Christopher Robin who is visited by Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in this delightfully heart-warming tale.
Christopher Robin, the little boy from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, is now all grown up – an overworked businessman struggling to find time for his family. Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood decide it’s time to venture into his world to remind him of childhood joys and help him rekindle his imagination. A heart-warming delight with live action and CGI, featuring all of AA Milne’s much-loved characters.
(2018 USA 104 mins)
As always, the translation of a single man’s drawn line by an army of punctilious pixel-pushers risks the erasure or diminishment of the charm of the original illustrations, charm being of course one of the most essential items in any cartoonist’s arsenal. The trick is done here with considerable panache, and there are a few fine sight gags – I am partial to one involving an oblivious Pooh tracking honey through the Robin household – though the comedy is based more in malapropisms and other wordplay. Pooh Bear and Eeyore, voiced respectively by Jim Cummings and Brad Garrett, hoard most of the best lines, and together define the spirit of the movie, both amiably shuffling and endearingly glum.
