Disney’s ‘Christopher Robin’ reintroduces an adult with a childhood friend.

As we grow up, we shed pieces of our childhood away. The child grows up into an adult, taking on responsibilities and, sometimes, forgetting the purity and joy of running around the playground or talking to imaginary friends. There are some cases where our inner child is contained and protected deep inside our soul, shielded from the harsh realities of life and adulthood.

Then there are some times where we need to be reconnected with that child we have forgotten so long ago.
