We already know that Disney is doing a live-action Winnie the Pooh movie titled Christopher Robin with Ewan McGregor playing the title character. But Fox Searchlight has their own Winnie the Pooh movie on the way, titled Goodbye Christopher Robin, and they’ve released an official trailer for it.
The movie is in the same vein as Finding Neverland, telling the story of author A.A. Milne and how his son Christopher Robin and his toys inspired his Winnie the Pooh stories.
You can read more about it and see the trailer and a poster below.
GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?
Goodbye Christopher Robin is set to be released in theaters on October 13th.
