Christopher Robin posters are so nostalgia-filled it’s disgusting

What happens when Winnie The Pooh’s best friend, Christopher Robin, grows up and hits the rocks?

We don’t know… be we will in a few weeks when Christopher Robin arrives.

In the meantime, check out these new posters and tell us they don’t hit you right in the childhood.

The story is set in the year is 1949, and Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) is “an efficiency manager at a luggage company, tasked with finding the resources to prevent many of his workers from being laid off. That will mean missing the vacation he has planned with his wife, Evelyn (Hayley Atwell), and young daughter, Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). They’re heading to the Hundred Acre Wood while he’s stuck in London with work, when he gets a visit from his old friend Pooh. But he’s not the same person Pooh remembers.”

Christopher Robin was directed by Marc Forster (World War Z) and it also stars Mark Gatiss as Keith Winslow, Robin’s boss. As far as the voices of the characters go Jim Cummings plays Winnie the Pooh; Chris O’Dowd plays Tigger; Brad Garrett plays Eeyore; Toby Jones plays Owl; Nick Mohammed plays Piglet; Peter Capaldi plays Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo plays Kanga.

The movie will be released in theaters on August 3rd.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
