London (Elisabetta Steri and Erica Atzeni) – The most known teddy bear “Winnie the Pooh” will return to the scene with the new Marc Forster’s movie “Christopher Robin”.
It will be released on 17th August in the UK’s cinemas, while in Italy will be out on 30th August. The Scottish actor Ewan McGregor has been chosen as the main protagonist who is Christopher Robin, son of A.A Milne (Winnie the Pooh’s English author), who was born in the same month of the movie realising.
The movie deals with the story of the famous kid Christopher Robin, who forgot his imagination over the years while he was becoming a man. So, we could see Christopher spending most of his life working and risking to totally forget the most important values: family and happiness.
That is why Winnie comes to life again with its friends by trying to bring him back to the right way and help him remembering the the happy adventures they lived together in the One hundred acred Wood.
Will Pooh and her friends reach their goal? Wait and see. Meanwhile we can take a look at the most curious aspects of the most famous teddy of the world.
The woods, in which the story takes place, is inspired by the country house where Milne used to live, in Ashdown forest, south est of England.
Winnie’s stuffed animal is incredibly successful in the whole world and it is in the second place of the “Most sold puppets for children” chart, after Mickey Mouse.
Just a few people know that the original peluche doesn’t look like the one we can see today on TV. The original Winnie was manufactured by Margarete Steiff in 1906-10 and a copy of it was exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum from 7th December 2017 to 18th April 2018 in London, where an entire exhibition about Milne and his teddy bear was attracting thousands of people.
Winnie the Pooh has got million of fans, starting from the Royal Family including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Harry. Before the Disney movie’s announcement, this year Prince Harry bought the first edition of Winnie The Pooh book by A.A. Milne spending about £8000.00 for his nephew’s (Prince Louis) christening last July.
Now will be again on the screen stealing children and adults’ hearts as it has kept doing it for a long time.
