Live-Action ‘Winnie the Pooh’ to star Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin?


Ewan McGregor is in talks to play an adult Christopher Robin in Disney’s upcoming live-action Winnie the Pooh.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the film will center on an adult Christopher Robin who is now more focused on business than he is on imagination.

An adult man reconnecting with a talking teddy bear from his youth? It sounds to me like a kinder, gentler Ted.

McGregor is certainly doing a lot with Disney these days. McGregor was recently in the mega-hit Beauty and the Beast as Lumiere, and is perhaps best known to audiences as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars prequel trilogy. There’s been a rumor that McGregor might even land his own Obi-Wan spinoff movie, as his voice was heard during Rey’s Force vision in The Force Awakens.

There is currently no release date set for Disney’s live-action Winnie the Pooh. Oh, bother!

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
