I’ve been completely and totally useless for hours because I knew the teaser trailer for Christopher Robin was dropping today. I’ve already watched the Mary Poppins Returns trailer a few dozen times since its debut during the Oscars telecast.
There have been a lot of sequels and live-action adaptations over the last few years. Although I’ve been excited for all of them, these are special. Mary Poppins and Winnie The Pooh were a part of my childhood! I remember singing the songs from Mary Poppins in elementary school chorus. I still have a room full of Winnie The Pooh toys.
And it probably doesn’t need to be mentioned that I’m a little excited about Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ewan McGregor, does it? But enough about my feelings. Catch the new teaser trailers and posters for both below!
You can catch Christopher Robin in theaters on August 3, 2018 and Mary Poppins Returns on December 25, 2018.
