“Christopher Robin” (2018)

Yes, this film has almost the exact same premise as Hook; but me personally, I prefer this version. This just feels like a natural story to tell with this familiar cast of characters, and they do a really good job of conveying the themes of growing up, loss of innocence, and the dangers of growing up too quickly rather effectively. The visual effects on the stuffed animals are simplistic and quaint, but also immersive. The biggest issue I have is that the film’s message about not being overworked isn’t handled very well. Still, the rest of the film is so charming and so sweet, that it can easily be overlooked. This is currently my favorite of the Disney Live Action remakes.
