The fantastic Christopher Robin

Disney has been doing a lot of movies that have taken their older productions and, basically, slapped a glossy finish over them via live action resulting in… Mediocre films in my opinion. The retelling of their classics like “Beauty and the Beast”, “Cinderella”, “Sleeping Beauty”, and “The Jungle Book” have always left me with the thought that the originals were better and why not just release the originals again in movie theaters for the next generation to enjoy on the big screen.
“Christopher Robin” isn’t just a simple retelling of “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh”, since it is an elder Christopher finding his old friends again, but nostalgia plays a huge role in the movie. I wonder how good I would’ve considered the movie if I hadn’t seen the original animated classic. It does begin in right at the tail end 🎶 of Christopher’s childhood days 🎶 so we have some basis of the stuffed friends but without knowing the original classic, some jokes fall flat.
Either way, the movie was a warm hearted tale about a man rediscovering his childhood imagination and would actually be a great movie to take your child to if they’ve seen the original.
