I received a copy of the Christopher Robin Blu-ray from Disney. This was because I had attended the Red Carpet for the Christopher Robin movie back in July. Opinions of the movie are 100% my own.

The movie, Christopher Robin, began to play in theaters last Friday. I had the privilege to speak with the main cast and also the director, Marc Forster about the movie.

I hope that you have enjoyed reading them and also my red carpet recap and Christopher Robin movie review. On that trip to California I was hosted by Disney to attend the Christopher Robin Premiere on the Walt Disney Studios Lot.

I may link to items on Amazon in this article, they are affiliate links for which I receive a small amount of money at no cost to you. What follows is my interview with Christopher Robin director, Marc Forster. It was Marc’s vision, attention to detail and careful reverence to the original works of A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard that shaped this movie into the very special thing that it is. Not to mention the care he took in selecting the cast.
