An old buddy of mine is a little conflicted about this.
Basically, it’s the commercialization of Pooh vs. his desire to see something exactly like this. I think: I’ll have to ask him. But I’m interested in something else. To wit, The Mary Poppins Returns trailer:
Kind of the same movie, isn’t it? An update of a children’s classic, written with adults in mind — a magical entity comes back and helps a broken-down adult revisit the magic of his childhood. Which sounds a lot like Hook, come to think of it. Which I liked, almost in spite of itself.
Anyhow, I assume Disney has a reason for making movies like this at this time. They usually do. It is, as they say, their jam.
PS: ‘Protean’ because that Christopher Robin trailer absolutely works as the story of a man having a psychotic break and descending into a hallucinatory madness. Which isn’t going to happen here solely because it’s Disney.
