Who is Ewan McGregor’s favorite 100 acre wood character?
He laughed at this question. He said they were all his favorite but he spent the most time with Pooh. Pooh taught him a lot and we can all learn from Pooh Bear.
What is it like acting with stuffed animals?
We learned that there were several actors who helped with the voicing of the stuffed animals in the Christopher Robin movie. These actors would say the lines and move grey stuffed objects around for Ewan to act with. This helped with where Ewan was looking. It also helped so that there was something for Ewan to converse with. He told us that by the end of the shoot these actors had embodied the personalities of the characters they voiced.
What is the message about fatherhood in the Christopher Robin film?
Ewan took away from the Christopher Robin film that fathers, and mothers, need to be present in their children’s lives. But he truly hopes that the individual viewer finds their own take away from the film.

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.
