Fans can rewatch the sweetness of Disney’s Christopher Robin come November 6, 2018, when the live-action Winnie the Pooh starring Ewan McGregor is released on Digital, Movies Anywhere, Blu-ray, and DVD. The upcoming home release will include many extras.
Christopher Robin is an “entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories” which “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.”
The film stars Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin; Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell as his wife, Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael as his daughter, Madeline; and Emmy winner Mark Gatiss as Giles Winslow, Robin’s boss.
Christopher Robin also features the voices of Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett as Eeyore, Golden Globe nominee Toby Jones as Owl, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Oscar winner Peter Capaldi as Rabbit and Oscar nominee and Tony Award winner Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
The bonus features offer fans “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.”
Furthermore, 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.
On November 6, 2018, 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.
