3. Disney’s Christopher Robin
Winnie the Pooh and the rest of the gang are back to reignite the magic of your childhood, this time in live-action charm. We’re not just staying in Hundred Acre Wood, however, but taking the long trip to London, where we find an adult Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) who has long since lost his playful spirit. Stuck in a job where he is overworked and underpaid, Christopher Robin has little time for his family – his wife Evelyn (Hayley Atwell) and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). He’s also all but forgotten about the stuffed friends of his childhood, until Winnie the Pooh pays him an unexpected visit. Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore also return, looking worn but just as adorable as we remember them. And now it’s up to them to journey to our modern world and help Christopher Robin rediscover that childlike wonder inside him again. With Jim Cummings lending his iconic Pooh and Tigger voices to the film, this adventure will make you laugh while reaching for your tissues.
Release date: 2 August
