Christopher Robin Movie Review
In the heartwarming live action adventure Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
Top 3 Reasons to see Christopher Robin
There are many reasons why families will choose to see Christopher Robin when it opens in theaters today, I certainly can’t list all of them. I am sharing my top 3 reasons to see Christopher Robin this weekend and whether Christopher Robin is appropriate for all kids.
1. Ewan McGregor
My number one reason to see Christoper Robin is Christopher Robin himself. Ewan McGregor was perfectly cast as the grown-up version of Christopher Robin. He is such a likable guy that even though you see his priorities are messed up, you still root for him. You want him to change his ways and reconnect with his family and his friends from the 100 Acre Wood.
2. Winnie the Pooh
My second top reason to see Christopher Robin is Winnie the Pooh. Obviously, Pooh is the man or the bear in this case. His sweetness and wisdom are really what the entire movie is about. He’s a character that every child loves and Pooh reminds every adult of their childhood.
My Favorite Winnie the Pooh Quotes
People say nothing is impossible but I do nothing every day.
Doing nothing often leads to the very best something
I always get to where I am going by walking away from where I’ve been.
Eeyore was my favorite character in the Christopher Robin. His constant down in the dumps attitude is so hilarious even when you know it’s coming. He is resigned to every terrible scenario coming true and lets you know. If you love Eeyore too, don’t miss my Eeyore inspired red carpet style.
Is there a Christopher Robin post-credit scene?
Don’t jump up and leave as soon as the movie is over, otherwise, you’ll miss a fun post-credit scene featuring the characters in beach chairs, a fun line from Eeyore and a new song from Disney legend, Richard Sherman.
Is Christopher Robin appropriate for kids?
Christopher Robin is rated PG which means its likely appropriate for most kids in most families. Even though it features Winnie the Pooh and his 100 Acre Wood friends, keep in mind it is a live action and not animated. I know live action movies didn’t start to hold my boys’ attention until they were 4 or 5 years old. If your little one loves live action movies or Winnie the Pooh, then Christopher Robin might hold their attention.
It is rated PG for a few action sequences. There are some initial scenes that reference Christopher Robin going to war but not much detail is shown. There is only one sequence that I think is scary and that’s when Christopher Robin is being chased by Heffalumps. It’s brief but if you kiddo scares easily or is particularly scared of Heffalumps, I’d consider watching the movie first and deciding for yourself.
Otherwise, it’s a perfect film for every family and anyone who loves Winnie the Pooh and friends. It has a sweet message that everyone should hear given the current climate in today’s society.
