The stars of Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael, Jim Cummings and Brad Garrett joined director Marc Forster and celebrity guests John Stamos, Alison Sweeney and Lesley Ann Warren at the world premiere of the film on the Disney studio lot earlier tonight.
Prior to the screening, legendary composer Richard M. Sherman was on hand for the dedication of the studio’s historic Orchestra Stage (where the music for the “Winnie the Pooh featurettes, “Mary Poppins” and “The Jungle Book” were recorded), which was renamed Sherman Brothers Stage A in honor of Richard and his late brother Robert B. Sherman.
In Disney’s heartwarming live-action adventure, 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.
“Christopher Robin” opens in U.S. theaters August 3, 2018.
