Oh. My. Goodness. This is literally the cutest, most sweetest movie I have ever seen. It was so cute that I just wanted to cry the whole time. I LOVED IT. Ewan McGregor stars as grown up Christopher Robin who still lives with all the lovely and fun memories of the Hundred Acre wood. One day, Pooh shows up to London in hopes that he can once again save his friend from the Hefflelumps and the adventure. Hayley Atwell plays Mrs. Christopher Robin and I thought she was a perfect supporting actress in this movie.
This movie is so completely different than Goodbye, Christopher Robin as I’m sure most of you will have thought anyway. This one is definitely a family movie with tons of adventure and imagination. I just love how the film keep up the imagination throughout the plot and gears his wife and child into the adventure as well. Along with this, the grown up Christopher Robin learns to be a kid again and to have fun with what life has given him. There’s no need to be unhappy if you can find the little things in life – like Pooh carrying the balloon because it makes him happy. Just a simple balloon can remind you of the greater things in life and how easy some have it compared to others.
The animation in this movie is fantastic and I can see why it was nominated for a couple Oscars in this aspect. Just makes me want to squeeze each one of those “stuffed animals” they’re so adorable. Reminds me of my childhood, watching the animated series on Disney and always wanting a piglet or tigger or Eeyore or pooh bear stuffed animal (I think I just had Tigger, how sad). I recommend this movie to everyone, it’s so unbelievably adorable that I just want to watch it again and again. I actually got my best friend to watch it with her 2 year old and she had the same thoughts (it was a bit too adult for the 2 year old though when the stuffed animals weren’t talking). I’ll give this one a “Loved it” and it will be a part of my bluray collection one day soon. It’s currently on Netflix for anyone interested. (5/5).
