Fox Searchlight has revealed the first trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin, an endearing tribute film to the beginnings of Winnie-the-Pooh. The film is set in a world following World War II and follows the life of author A.A. Milne, played by Domhnall Gleeson, and his son, played by Will Tilston, as they create the truly wonderful world of Winnie-the-Pooh. Margot Robbie stars opposite Gleeson as his wife Daphne Milne.
I knew what this film was about going in, but had no idea how it would unfold as I watched it. After watching the trailer, it seems like it’s going to be a very touching and endearing tribute to the creation of one of the most beloved children franchises of all-time. I remember watching the show as a kid and loving the books, but to the people of this era, it meant so much more. The world was in chaos following the worst time in our history, and thanks to Christopher Robin and his family, a little bit of hope was brought back to England. It’s a story that will no doubt bring some tears to yours eyes.
