I get particularly tickled when things I like in different realms come together, and that’s the case with the new sneak peek of the Christopher Robin movie, which arrives in theaters everywhere on August 3rd!
I’ve already explained that I’ve loved Winnie the Pooh since before I could talk. While I haven’t loved Ewan McGregor for as long nor in nearly the same way, love him I do. I’ve also been loving the song “One Foot in Front of the Other” by Walk the Moon since March, and I was surprised when it started playing 45 seconds into the sneak peek.
See for yourself here:
If you think that’s as cute as I do and you’ll be in Chicago, head to Kids Eat Chicago this Saturday and Sunday where you can take advantage of a cute photo op that looks awfully familiar (and adorable)! Kids Eat Chicago is held by Chicago Parent (which I’m proud to say is another of my writing homes) in partnership with Taste of Chicago. Amazing food, fun with Chicago Parent and a Winnie the Pooh photo? So many good things coming together!
And if you’re wondering more about the movie, here’s the scoop from Disney Studios:
