In the photos, Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings) chills on the beach with Piglet (The Job Lot‘s Nick Mohammed) and the mopey donkey Eeyore (Brad Garrett)… before being bustled through London by the grown-up Christopher (Ewan McGregor).

Winnie the Pooh reappears in his old friend’s life just as Christopher is at risk of losing his wife Evelyn (Hayley Atwell) and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael) due to his slavish devotion to his work.

“In those older stories, [Christopher] purveys a lot of wisdom through the way he deals with Pooh. Pooh and Eeyore run through a lot of philosophical questions, and Christopher Robin is there to answer them somehow,” McGregor has explained.

“And I think, largely, he’s just lost any of that childish wisdom and he’s a bit stuck. He’s just very work-minded and doesn’t have any time for play. I suppose that’s what the film is about: finding his relationship with his younger self again.”

This off-kilter adaptation of A. A. Milne’s children’s stories comes from director Marc Forster, who is best known for decidedly more adult fare like Quantum of Solace and World War Z.

Disney’s Christopher Robin — which also features the voices of Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, Sophie Okonedo as Kanga and Chris O’Dowd as Tigger — opens on August 3 in US cinemas and August 17 in the UK.
