One of the most whimsical locations in Magic Kingdom Park is the Crystal Palace, a buffet with character where guests enjoy food, photos, laughs and autographs with Winnie the Pooh and his Pals. Just thinking about the Pooh’s Puffed French Toast served during breakfast makes me rumbly in my tumbly.

Fans of Winnie the Pooh have something special to look forward to this summer; the willy, nilly, silly old bear will return to the big screen in Disney’s “Christopher Robin.”

In the heartwarming live action adventure Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.

Now grown up, Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter. Christopher has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, their friendship is rekindled, reminding Christopher of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing was considered the very best something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, step out of the forest and venture into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.

Enjoy the brand new trailer below!

Disney’s “Christopher Robin” will release nationwide August 3, 2018.
