Disney's CHRISTOPHER ROBIN Comes Home on Digital and Blu-ray 11/6! #ChristopherRobin

Paid promotion for Christopher Robin on behalf of Walt Disney Studios 

On Nov. 6, Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.

This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories will transport parents back to the imaginative, carefree days of childhood and allow them to share their love of Pooh and friends with their own children. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says director Marc Forster. “We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.”

Bonus features provide a heartfelt look at the making of “Christopher Robin,” showcasing the magical artistry that brings the classic characters to life, the human actors’ techniques for interacting with stuffed animals, and the filmmakers’ passion for their project. Bronte Carmichael, who plays Christopher Robin’s daughter Madeline, takes viewers on an exciting journey from the drawing board to film locations throughout the United Kingdom. Features flash back to highlight Walt Disney’s fondness for Winnie the Pooh and recall the voice actors who lovingly portrayed the unforgettable voice of the iconic character. An exclusive digital bonus feature explores the actual teddy bear, given to Christopher Robin Milne 98 years ago, which inspired the original Pooh stories that have been shared and adored by families around the globe.

Friends are like family and that is true with Pooh and his friends.  Pooh has been part of my family for years and now a part of my children's lives and their families someday.  That silly old bear and his friends can bring a smile to your face.   This Thanksgiving, why not remember your friends and have a Friendsgiving.    

Friendsgiving is an unofficial holiday that allows friends to gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving together. When you can't go home to be with family, gather your friends like Pooh and Tigger and join together to feast.    Then afterwards watch the Disney's Christopher Robin!  Let me for warn you, there will be tears.  I got teary eyed in the first few minutes of the film!   There will be laughs...and there will be memories of your childhood brought up!
