Fun Facts About Disney's Christopher Robin & 'Legacy' featurette #ChristopherRobin

Now playing in theaters everywhere, Disney's CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is a heartwarming live-action adventure that gives families a look into the life of the character Christopher Robin, now all grown-up.


In Disney's Christopher Robin, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood is now grown up, living in midcentury London and dealing with the stresses of adulthood.

Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.

The film stars Golden Globe winner Ewan McGregor ("Fargo") as Christopher Robin; Golden Globe nominee Hayley Atwell ("Agent Carter") as his wife Evelyn; Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline; and Emmy winner Mark Gatiss ("Sherlock") as Giles Winslow, Robin's boss.

The film also features the voices of: Jim Cummings ("Winnie the Pooh") as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger; three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett ("Everybody Loves Raymond") as Eeyore; Golden Globe nominee Toby Jones ("Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets") as Owl; Nick Mohammed ("The Martian") as Piglet; Oscar winner Peter Capaldi ("Doctor Who") as Rabbit; and Oscar nominee Sophie Okonedo ("The Secret Life of Bees") as Kanga.

To celebrate the release of the film, I'm sharing this video featurette

The Christopher Robin "Legacy" featurette shares about the legacy of the beloved A.A. Milne characters.

I also want to share a few fun facts about making the film.

  • Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl make their first appearance in a live-action film as three-dimensional characters in “Christopher Robin.”
  • Cinematographer Matthias Königswieser chose to shoot the film with traditional handheld cameras to help the stuffed animals’ motions look more believable. They were then brought to life via photo-realistic computer animation in post-production, immersed in mid-century London as well as in nature.
  • Actual stuffed animals (or “stuffies,” as they were affectionately referred to on set), were physically created by the creature visual effects team at Animated Extras, the Oscar®-winning special effects shop at Shepperton Studios, for reference when blocking scenes and for interaction with the actors.
  • Special attention was paid to Winnie the Pooh’s tummy (to make sure it had the proper cuddle factor), to Tigger’s expressions (so he could effectively register surprise, anger and bewilderment) and to Eeyore (to make sure he had the proper amount of sag).

  • The Hundred Acre Wood from Milne’s books, an enchanting place where Christopher Robin’s animal friends reside and where imaginations thrive, is based on Ashdown Forest and, more specifically, an area in the forest known as the Five Hundred Acre Wood. Several scenes in the film, which take place in the Hundred Acre Wood, were filmed in Ashdown Forest. Other scenes were shot in Windsor Great Park which is home to Windsor Castle, one of Queen Elizabeth’s official residences, and the one in which she spends the most time.
  • The “Christopher Robin” production was particularly conscious of its ecological footprint at all the forest locations, using vehicles with very low tire pressure so as to not compact any root systems of the ancient trees or trample any of the protected ferns, and posting poles with hazard tape to direct the crew where to (and not to) walk.

Disney's "Christopher Robin" is directed by Golden Globe® nominee Marc Forster ("Finding Neverland") from a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry ("Golden Exits") and Oscar winner Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight," "Million Dollar Arm") and Oscar nominee Allison Schroeder ("Hidden Figures") and a story by Greg Brooker and Mark Steven Johnson based on characters created by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard.

The producers are Brigham Taylor and Kristin Burr with Renée Wolfe and Jeremy Johns serving as executive producers.
