Goodbye Christopher Robin Trailer

Following the end of World War I, the globe was in a state of recovery, looking for hope wherever they could find it. That’s where author A.A. Milne comes in as his creation of the honey-loving bear called Winnie the Pooh became a literary phenomenon and gave the world the pick-me-up it needed to endure.

Goodbye Christopher Robin recounts how author A.A. Milne was inspired by his son, whose real name was Christopher Robin, to write this story, influenced by the child’s imagination and his signature stuffed animals that just so happened to include a bear, a little pig, a donkey and a tiger. But once Winnie the Pooh becomes a global sensation, it has a more devastating impact on the family than you might think.

Goodbye Christopher Robin Trailer

These days, it feels like there are facets of the world at war at all times and we just accept this as the way things are. But in decades and centuries past, a nation at war was all-consumed by this fact. People didn’t have high tech gadgets to distract them or an advanced military to give us a sense of security. But one man came up with a story that gave hope to a nation torn apart by World War I.

Goodbye Christopher Robin tells the story of children’s author A. A. Milne and how his son Christopher Robin helped inspire the classic children’s character Winnie the Pooh and all his adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood. Now the first trailer has arrived to show us how this heartwarming true story is coming to life.

National Lampoon Movie Cast

Just last month we found out Netflix was developing a film about Doug Kenney, the co-founder of National Lampoon, the humor magazine that eventually evolved into creating comedy records and movies in the 1970s and 1980s. The film is called A Futile & Stupid Gesture and shines a light on the history of National Lampoon through the eyes of Kenney, who will be played by Saturday Night Live veteran and Last Man on Earth star Will Forte.

Earlier this week the cast filled out with the addition of Joel McHale taking on the role of his Community co-star Chevy Chase, before he made it big on Saturday Night Live, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Domhnall Gleeson playing another National Lampoon co-founder, Henry Beard.

Now the cast has gotten even bigger with additional actors being brought on to play National Lampoon comedians and future comedy superstars Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and John Belushi, as well as a couple other key roles.
