I recently got to see Christopher Robin in the cinema with my friend and I loved it. But, it did lead me to getting two McDonald’s in one day – I’m ashamed of myself. I got a McChicken Sandwich and fries as snacks and then a 5 select meal afterwards for dinner. Not good! But, the film somehow made me hungry and tired.
It was like going back in time to my childhood when I used to read the books and watch the films. The real-life animals were amazing and I’d love a Winnie-The-Pooh bear. If they’re available to buy can someone please let me know?
The voices for the characters worked perfectly and it felt just like the old films.
I thought the whole storyline was great but it seemed to go really quickly – a lost faster than other films. But as they say, time flies when you’re having fun. It really magnifies the difference between childhood and adulthood and how you should never lose your fun side no matter how serious life gets. It also conveyed to me how important family is and that you choose your family. These are hugely important messages so I’m glad that they are being portrayed to children (and big children like me).
It was also super interesting how the employees at Christopher Robin’s workplace seemed to be just like the characters of Winnie-The-Pooh and so he never really left them behind, he just grew up. Basically, CR was always a born leader and people were always going to follow him in life.
The one thing that hit me most in the film was when Christopher Robin, as a grown man, was speaking about the future to his wife, Evelyn, and said “If I work really hard now, in the future our lives will be…” and Evelyn replies with “Impressive? Worse? We don’t care. We want you.” She then goes on to say that she is his wife and she’s there right in front of him and that he should live in the moment and not for the future because life is happening right in front of his eyes. His little girl is growing older and he’s missing it because he’s so focussed on work. It took his childhood ‘friends’ to help him realise that she was right and this is often what I try to tell people in my life. To stop wishing their lives away and to just live in the moment and enjoy life before it’s gone. That. That right there is important.
Have you seen Christopher Robin?
