TRAILER: ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ Tells the Story of How Winnie the Pooh Came to Be

I grew up with a Tigger stuffed toy by my side always, and I remember having books on Winnie the Pooh, too. We all know the story of this happy bunch of animal friends living in the Hundred Acre Wood, but do we know how this story came to be?

Upcoming drama film Goodbye Christopher Robin will tell us how, exactly. Following the story of A. A. Milne, the writer and creator of Winnie the Pooh, the film will take us into a behind-the-scenes look at the life of the author, and into the creation of the Winnie the Pooh stories which is inspired by his son, C.R. Milne. We all know “C.R. Milne”, of course. Christopher Robin plays a huge role in Winnie the Pooh’s life as his warm and kind-hearted human friend.

Goodbye Christopher Robin stars Domhnall Gleeson as A.A. Milne, Kelly Macdonald as the nanny, and Margot Robbie as Daphne de Sélincourt, A.

A. Milne’s wife. Watch the trailer for here:

We’ll uncover the story of Goodbye Christopher Robin when it hits theaters on October 2017.
