Variety confirms Hayley Atwell has been cast in Disney’s Christopher Robin. She’s set to join Ewan McGregor.
You can read the synopsis of the film below:
“Christopher Robin” follows Disney’s ongoing model of taking animated classics from its archives and giving them a live-action spin, centering on Robin (McGregor), the little boy from the “Winnie the Pooh” series, who is now all-grown-up and lost all sense of imagination. Pooh and his friends reenter Robin’s life to help him find it once again. Atwell will play Robin’s wife.
Marc Forster (World War Z) will direct from Allison Schroeder’s script while Brigham Taylor( Hidden Figures) will produce.
