What’d You Think?
The first trailer for Christopher Robin gives every indication that this will be another Disney film that is both heartwarming and also plays to the nostalgia factor. Initially watching the trailer I was reminded of Saving Mr. Banks and also the most recent trailer for Mary Poppins Returns. Sometimes life gets in the way of having a life and remembering what is important. My hunch is that this film will be focused on the themes of living life with those you love. After seeing this trailer, I’m actually quite excited to see this movie and am looking forward to August for it to be in theaters! I think they nailed the setup, Pooh was perfect, the cast looks great, and I can’t wait to see this one! What do you think?
