‘Christopher Robin’ trailer teases Ewan McGregor’s character meeting Winnie the Pooh

Disney’s new live-action project, adapting a classic animated property, will be centered on Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin.

“Sooner or later, your past catches up to you” is the tagline for the live-action/CGI film based on characters from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh book series.

The studio released the first trailer, giving fans of all ages their first look at Ewan McGregor starring as the adult Christopher Robin. Check out the teaser below.

No longer “the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals,” Christopher Robin “has grown up and lost his way,” the studio’s logline teases. “Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.”

If this is all sounds eerily similar to Hook, it’s because it kind of is.

This project actually originated with acclaimed indie filmmaker Alex Ross Perry writing and directing, but he departed the director’s chair and the screenplay is now credited to Perry and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures) with a story by Perry.

The film also stars Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) as Christopher’s wife Evelyn, Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline, and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) as Christopher’s boss Keith Winslow and features the voices of Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh; Chris O’Dowd as Tigger; Brad Garrett as Eeyore; Toby Jones as Owl; Nick Mohammed as Piglet; Peter Capaldi as Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.

Christopher Robin opens in theaters on August 3rd.
