Winnie the Pooh, the classic Disney character many have grown up with made a live remake last year but wasn’t as successful as many thought.
The 2018 movie has hit an 83% audience score based on rotten tomatoes; this is a slightly lower percentage compared to some of Disney’s other live remakes. For example, The Lion King remake brought in an 88% audience score, and it has only been out since the middle of July.
Based on the New York Times, Disney had a 70 million dollar budget; this was a considerably low budget compared to Disney’s Lion King remake, which had approximately a 260 million dollar budget. Does this mean the lack of interest in making the movie resulted in the audience’s lack of interest?
However, numerous people have told me how spectacular the movie was and how amazing it was to see a remake. As a Disney lover, I was tremendously pleased and was not disappointed at all by this beautiful remake. All of the characters seemed to be very well displayed, and the overall story had brought me to tears. Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger were beautifully transformed into these semi-live action characters and were all adorably cute.
Christopher Robin is a highly underrated movie, and I highly recommend anyone who has not seen it, please consider this astounding film.
