Preview, Disney’s take on “Christopher Robin” promises a more “animated” approach

We’ve already had a perfectly serviceable film biography of A.A. Milne and the little boy who inspired his Winnie the Pooh books, “Goodbye, Christopher Robin.”

That one starred the omni-present Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie and came out a year or so ago.

“The Disney Version” features Ewan McGregor as the older, soured by business Christopher, Hayley Atwell and a talking bear who sounds exactly like Sterling Holloway, who voiced Pooh way back in the original cartoons in the ’60s.

It isn’t, of course, it’s legendary Holloway impersonator Jim Cummings. This “Robin” is due out in August.
