Disney released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming, live-action "Christopher Robin" film and people shed tears of joy all over social media upon hearing the voice of their old bear friend.
Clearly, the world needs a little Pooh right now.
Christopher is a man now dealing with grown-up problems, and when his beloved Winnie finds him, Christopher, played by Ewan McGregor, is sitting on a park bench, despondent, his head in his hands.
"What to do, what to do?" he moans.
Never miss a local story.
"What to do, indeed," says a little voice from behind the bench, the voice of longtime Pooh actor Jim Cummings.
Christopher turns to see his little buddy.
And thus a new adventure is about to begin as Pooh helps the now-beleaguered Christopher rediscover the charm and magic of his younger days.
The movie is slated to hit theaters on Aug. 3.
"Christopher Robin" is described as a whimsical fantasy set in the late 1940s as adult Christopher, returned from World War II, lives in London with his wife (Hayley Atwell) and their young daughter. He makes a living at a luggage company and in the trailer it is apparent that business is not going well. People are about to lose their jobs.
This first trailer shows only Christopher and Pooh, but yes, the whole gang from the Hundred Acre Wood is coming along for the ride, according to EW.
Watch for Tigger (voiced by Chris O’Dowd), Eeyore (Brad Garrett), Owl (Toby Jones), Piglet (Nick Mohammed), Rabbit (Peter Capaldi) and Kanga (Sophie Okonedo).
“The movie is so full of joy and emotion and also of scenes that I think are very timely,” director Marc Forster told EW.
Pooh, he said, "is still as relevant today as he’s ever been. Perhaps even more so."
He's right, if social media's warm embrace of the trailer is any indication.
We're going to need a bigger tissue box.
