5 Things That I Want to See in Christopher Robin
Since last year, whenever I go to a theatre nowadays, Disney has kept making a lot of movies for us to see. For instance, you got the live-action movies like Beauty and the Beast, Jungle Book, and Cinderella. Marvel movies which are The Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Avengers Infinity War, Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War, and many other Marvel movies that came out and some that are in the making. There are also a lot of films that are just Disney movies like Moana and even Pixar movies such as Coco and Incredibles 2. Wow, they must be very busy, so I thought that since I am going to see Christopher Robin why not make an article about it.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but this is just a brief outline of what I expect because I was a huge Winnie the Pooh fan when I was a child like many of you were. What has drawn me to it was the warmth and innocence of these stories. Not a lot of cartoons like these do that today, so I am just going to list it and give a brief explanation.
Everybody at the Hundred Acre Wood - This one is pretty obvious. However, my not all the characters are in it. Companies like Disney don't always put every character into their first movie. I do expect them to put the main characters in, but I would also like to see Roo, Rabbit, Kanga, Owl, and Gopher in and see them. If we don't see all of them, maybe there is another chance for another movie. Who knows?
Christopher Robin - The title and one of the main characters of this movie, we know from the trailer that he has a family. job, and a change of clothing. However, what is he like? Is he the same Christopher Robin that we all know and love, but a little bit different? Where does he live? What type of job is he in? What company does he work for? All of these questions and more should be answered in Christopher Robin.
Who can't you wait to see in the Hundred Acre Wood?
The Story - Most of the Winnie the Pooh stories are about their mini adventures and tv shows at the Hundred Acre Wood. There have been countless other movies, but none of them live action. So what is the plot to this? Is it to save Christopher Robin from adulthood? When will take place? Is it set during the 1950s or another time period? Will anything happens to the Robin family? What is going to happen to our main characters Pooh, Tiger, Piglet, Eeyore, and of course Robin? Is there going to be a villain or is it just an idea of something awful happening that the creators made up?
The Setting - I already talked about the setting a little bit. Since this is a live action movie, the setting has to work with the animation. So when we get to the Hundred Acre Wood, what does it look like? How does it match up with the ones that we see in the books and in the animated shows? Is it cheerful or does it blend with our live-action animals? What does Christopher Robins work life look like? We do see them in the trailers a little bit, but are they a little bit darker than we think? What about his home? Is it warm in texture or not? What about the city that he lives in? Does it look like the streets in the mid-1900s or not?
Heartwarming - Being heartwarming is what all the characters are. The stories, setting, and the characters and actors that play there parts are creating a live-action story that we have never seen before. However, there are also a lot of other factors to consider like music and the animation.
When I usually sit down and listen to the commentary (because I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to that) they always emphasize music and animation. From an animation perceptive, they can take a long time, even when our technology is more advanced than in previous years, it can take a long time to get it just right. For example, on Pooh's fur, they have to get it just right before they put Pooh on the big screen.
Music is also important too. Some might say that music is also important as the characters themselves. Music conveys emotion so if someone was sad then the music would play a sad melody. If Piglet got scared, then the music could be scary or just play something light, but melancholy.
All are important when we watch the movie.
So, that is the end of my article. I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I wrote it. Leave a comment in the comment section and thanks for stopping by.
