First look at Christopher Robin


After an extensive open casting search, young newcomer Will Tilston, was found to play the part of Christopher Robin, in the feature film biopic of Winnie The Pooh author A.A Milne.

With a working title of Goodbye Christopher Robin, he stars alongside Domhnall Gleeson as his father, the author, Margot Robbie as his mother Daphne, with Kelly Macdonald, Stephen Campbell Moore, Alex Lawther, Richard McCabe, Nico Mirallegro, Geraldine Somerville and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The film gives a rare glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh. Along with his mother Daphne, and his nanny Olive, Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?

"I'm thrilled to finally see this fascinating story be realized with such an array of fresh and exciting talent," said producer Damian Jones, while his co-producer Steve Christian added: "It's such a joy to be able to share the long held passion that I've felt for this story and to see it all come together with a team that I could never have dreamt possible."

Written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Simon Vaughn, the film is directed by Simon Curtis, with as yet no release date announced.
