Disney's Christopher Robin is a heartwarming, live-action adventure for the whole family. And it is coming home just in time for the holidays on Digital and Blu-ray November 6. Embark on a spirited adventure with grown-up Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, and friends, and go behind the scenes to discover how Disney's beloved characters are brought to life.
Disney's Christopher Robin, the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne's timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl, making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.
This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories 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. Says director Marc Forster.
"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. We could all use a little bit of Pooh's heart and wisdom right now."
Bonus features provide 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.
