As the newly revamped take on Winnie the Pooh, director Marc Forster‘s Christopher Robin, gears up for its release next week, lead actor Ewan McGregor is hitting the press circuit to promote the film. This time, though, he’s not the interview subject on Ellen or some other talk show but rather the Scottish actor is doing his best James Lipton impersonation interviewing his co-stars from Christopher Robin.
Check out the short “Welcome to the Hundred Actor Wood” featurette, where McGregor speaks with his co-stars Winnie the Pooh (Jim Cummings), Piglet (Nick Mohammed), Tigger (Cummings), and Eeyore (Brad Garrett). Walt Disney Pictures will be releasing their new vision of Winnie the Pooh when Christopher Robin opens in theaters on August 3, 2018.
The official synopsis for Christopher Robin:
In Disney’s heartwarming live action adventure, the young boy who shared countless adventures with his stuffed animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood is now grown up, living in midcentury London and dealing with the stresses of adulthood. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasure in life once again.
