If You Love Winnie The Pooh You’ll Want To See This

Published On August 4, 2017 | By Carrie Buchanan |

I don’t know anybody that doesn’t know or love Winnie the Pooh.  And Tigger and Piglet, Eeyore and Christopher Robin – the whole crew.  It’s a story that has touched many hearts, young and old alike.

It’s a story I grew up with, and I’ve passed the love on to my kids.   If I’m being honest Tigger is my favourite. But the story is a popular one for sure. Which is why so many people are going to love this new movie.

Goodbye Christopher Robin is the story behind the story.  The relationship between a boy and his father. The story of the man who created Winnie The Pooh. The story of how so much success impacted the family and one little boy who didn’t want the spotlight on him.

A.A. Milne, legendary and beloved author found his inspiration for his two Winnie the Pooh books “Winnie the Pooh” in 1926 and “The House at Pooh Corner” in 1928 — from his son Christopher Robin Milne and his stuffed animals, like that Canadian black bear named Winnie used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to the London Zoo during the war.  Other toys were responsible for the creation of the Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet characters too.

The family lived near the Five Hundred Acre Wood in Ashdown Forest, which served as the inspiration for the Hundred Acre Wood in the Pooh books.

The story of Winnie the Pooh and his friends brought hope and comfort to England after the First World War.  I don’t think anybody expected that level of success and fame.
