China's Internet crackdown on memes comparing President Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh is a major overreaction not worthy of even a bother ... according to the guy who gives Pooh a voice. Jim Cummings -- the voice of Pooh since the '80s -- told us China and Prez Xi are taking the comparison all wrong, because it's actually a good thing. [[tmz:video id="0_al1w4owy"]] The memes started with a side-by-side image of Pooh and Tigger with a »

Did Winnie the Pooh steal China’s honey? China is blocking all mentions of the popular fictional character on social media sites — which may seem strange to those in the West who view the friendly, honey-loving bear as being totally harmless. According to BBC News, the Chinese government is blocking the use of the iconic character to nip any comparisons to China president Xi Jinping in the bud. Users of the popular messaging app WeChat and on other social media sites discovered this over the weekend after realizing that gif images of Pooh and even his friends were removed. Users of the. »

Although they’re not quite as confusing as grown adults who wear Winnie the Pooh sweatshirts, people over the age of 12 or 13 who are really into the Despicable Me movies are their own breed. Even the people who share Minions memes ironically can be kind of baffling. But something about those movies just click with the people of China, who gave Despicable Me 3 the biggest-ever opening for an animated film in that country over the weekend with $20.1 million, according to Variety.
It should be noted that China has been setting a lot of domestic box-office records in recent decades, thanks to the rapid expansion of the country’s economy, and therefore, spending money for things like movie tickets. But the previous record was set by the last movie in the franchise, 2015’s Minions, with Despicable Me 3 topping that figure by 17.5 »

Domnhall Gleeson headlines the story of A A Milne. Here's the trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin...
Well, this looks like it could be really lovely. Goodbye Christopher Robin is an upcoming film that tells the story between the author A A Milne – creator, of course, of the Winnie The Pooh stories and his son. His son was called Christopher Robin, and it was Christopher’s toys that inspired the Winnie The Pooh stories in the first place.
Domnhall Gleeson takes on the role of Milne in the film, and he’s joined in the cast by Margot Robbie and Kelly Macdonald. Furthermore, the first trailer for the movie has arrived, along with an official synopsis. So let’s get on with that.
Here’s the trailer…
And here’s the synopsis…

Chris here, just imagining a Beatles / Winnie the Pooh crossover. You say goodbye, because I say hello to the first Goodbye Christopher Robin trailer. (Which Beatle matches which Pooh character? Ringo is such a Tigger.)
The film is chasing after our literary nostalgic tears in the vein of Finding Neverland, following A.A. Milne (played by the ever dashing Domnhall Gleeson) as his son inspires him to create the adventures of Winnie the Pooh during Wwi »

Disney is currently working on a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie called Christopher Robin that will focus on Pooh’s human friend growing up and losing touch with his imagination, but director Simon Curtis’ similarly titled film Goodbye Christopher Robin is far more straightforward. As seen in this trailer, Curtis’ movie is a biopic about Winnie The Pooh creator A.A. Milne, and what it lacks in magical nonsense about a man reconnecting with his imaginary bear buddy, it makes up for in pure, untainted brightness and optimism. The way this trailer tells it, Domhnall Gleeson’s Milne singlehandedly brought the world back from the brink of darkness after the first World War, and it was all because of his son’s collection of stuffed animal toys.

You can hardly expect you won’t have a good time with anything connected to Winnie the Pooh, but Goodbye Christopher Robin is a multi-faceted adventure that details the creation of the beloved stories, and the family and times that are behind that creative endeavor. The film has released a trailer, and the narration paints a picture of hope and happiness in a world gone made, but it apparently isn’t as simple as even that.
First off, the title is depressing. I mean, what kind of story starts with “Goodbye?”
More to the point, the official synopsis gives us – “Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War. But with the eyes of the world on Christopher Robin, what will the cost be to the family?”
What will the cost be to the family? »

Winnie the Pooh is a cherished literary character who exudes warmth, love, kindness and absurd amounts of cuddliness.

In January 2017, fans of A.A. Milne celebrated the anniversary of his birthday which has become Winnie the Pooh Day. Biography.com posted a list about the British author earlier this year which you can see here.
In 2006, Winnie the Pooh received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, marking the 80th birthday of Milne’s creation.
Milne is most famous for his two Pooh books about a boy named Christopher Robin after his son, Christopher Robin Milne, and various characters inspired by his son’s stuffed animals, most notably the bear named Winnie-the-Pooh. Christopher Robin Milne’s stuffed bear, originally named “Edward”, was renamed “Winnie-the-Pooh” after a Canadian black bear named Winnie (after Winnipeg), which was used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to London Zoo during the war. “The pooh” comes from a swan called “Pooh”. E. H. Shepard illustrated the original Pooh books, »
