nless you’ve been living under a rock buried somewhere deep in the Thousand Acre Wood, you have been freakin’ out over the new Goodbye Christopher Robin movie set to come out later this year. A take on the classic Winnie the Pooh tale, the new live-action flick is going to feature all of the old gang back together at last.
While much of the story is live-action, since it will involve an array of talking plush critters, Hollywood was tasked with casting the crew. And now, after much-delay, their choices are out!
But are they the right ones?
But who is going to voice the squad? A new report this week says that Brad Garrett has been tapped to play the lovably down-trodden Eeyore.
While that might end up going down as Hollywood’s greatest casting choice of all time, we couldn’t help but wonder who else could fill the roles?
Let’s start at the top with the titular character of young Christopher Robin.
The film is going to tell the young boy’s story and will show him growing up through the years, all the while bringing along his group of fluffy pals.
The role currently belongs to The Imitation Game’s Alex Lawther. He first caught steam playing a young Alan Turing.
While we aren’t hating on that choice, I can’t help but think that another amazing choice for the role would have been…
Jack McBreyer! The 30 Rock and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star would be perfect as the innocent and curious young man.
Sure he might be a little old for this particular film, but if they ever launch a sequel, I hope they give handsome Jack a call!
Now, for his beloved friend Winnie The Pooh.
The long-time voice of Pooh Bear Jim Cummings will reprise his duties, but who else screams the phrase “Chubby, little cubby all stuffed with fluff?”
