Today is the day! Disney’s Christopher Robin is now available on Digital and Blu-ray! We loved this movie in the theater watching Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends back on the big screen and coming to the aid of their favorite boy, Christopher Robin, who is all grown up and in need of their help.
To celebrate Christopher Robin being available to watch at home, we have some super fun Christopher Robin movie night ideas, but first let's find out a little more about the movie….
In this heartwarming live action adventure, 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 beloved childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside of himself.
Now grown up, Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter. Christopher has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends.
But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, their friendship is rekindled, reminding Christopher of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing was considered the very best something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang – including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger – step out of the forest and venture into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.
