    Christopher Robin | In-home Trailer | Available on Digital & Blu-ray Nov 6
    BURBANK, Calif. (October 10, 2018) — On Nov. 6, Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.

    This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories will transport parents back to the imaginative, carefree days of childhood and allow them to share their love of Pooh and friends with their own children. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says director Marc Forster. “We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.”

    Bonus features provide a heartfelt look at the making of “Christopher Robin,” showcasing the magical artistry that brings the classic characters to life, the human actors’ techniques for interacting with stuffed animals, and the filmmakers’ passion for their project. Bronte Carmichael, who plays Christopher Robin’s daughter Madeline, takes viewers on an exciting journey from the drawing board to film locations throughout the United Kingdom. Features flash back to highlight Walt Disney’s fondness for Winnie the Pooh and recall the voice actors who lovingly portrayed the unforgettable voice of the iconic character. An exclusive digital bonus feature explores the actual teddy bear, given to Christopher Robin Milne 98 years ago, which inspired the original Pooh stories that have been shared and adored by families around the globe.

    “Christopher Robin” will be packaged and released in several different formats, giving families the flexibility to watch the film on a variety of different devices. Viewers can instantly watch the film in Digital HD and SD, and bring home a physical copy of the film as a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy) or a single DVD.

    I absolutely loved this movie.

    If I were to put on my critical hat, I could point out a number of flaws in the execution, and areas for improvement. But none of that actually mattered when I watched the movie. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it gave me all the feelings, and I loved it for that. I will happily be picking up a copy of this when it's released.

    I liked this far more than I expected to, but the November 6 date likely means I will get it farther down the line. That's the same day as Incredibles 2, and if they both street at $22.99 for release day price, which has been Disney's usual standard, I won't be able to get both simultaneously. Maybe some stores will offer a combined purchase discount. That I would consider doing at the right price, but if I have to choose one, Incredibles is first.

    That's going to be a terribly expensive day for a lot of us. Superman 4k, Air Force One 4k, incredibles 2, Wreck it Ralph 4k...more than one thing is going to have to wait.
