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 Disneys 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 Robins life to help him find it once again. Atwell will play Robins wife.
Marc Forster (World War Z) will direct from Allison Schroeder’s script while Brigham Taylor( Hidden Figures) will produce.
