Fun Facts about Christopher Robin

The characters Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh first appeared in a collection of verses written by A.A. Milne entitled “When We Were Very Young” in 1924. Milne’s book of short stories, “Winnie-the-Pooh” published in 1926, is still considered one of the most popular children’s books of all time.

E.H. Shepard’s original watercolor drawings from the A.A. Milne books are housed at the New York Public Library.

Madeline Robin (Bronte Carmichael) and her father Christopher’s longtime friends Tigger, Piglet and Winnie the Pooh go on an adventure in Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.

Principal photography on “Christopher Robin” took place at Shepperton Studios outside London and on locations throughout the U.K. Seventeen main unit locations in the U.K. were used during filming, many of which were London streets and U.K. thoroughfares, including: the intersection of Great Smith Street and Great College Street; Inner and Middle Temple Lanes; Lambeth Bridge and County Durham’s Hownsgill Viaduct.

The Hundred Acre Wood from Milne’s books, an enchanting place where Christopher Robin’s animal friends reside and where imaginations thrive, is based on Ashdown Forest and, more specifically, an area in the forest known as the Five Hundred Acre Wood. Located in the lush Sussex countryside about 30 miles south of London, the woods are still visited by thousands of tourists every year, all eager to walk the areas featured in the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. Several scenes in the film which take place in the Hundred Acre Wood were filmed in Ashdown Forest. Other scenes were shot in Windsor Great Park which is home to Windsor Castle, one of Queen Elizabeth’s official residences, and the one in which she spends the most time.

The “Christopher Robin” production was particularly conscious of its ecological footprint at all the forest locations, using vehicles with very low tire pressure so as to not compact any root systems of the ancient trees or trample any of the protected ferns, and posting poles with hazard tape to direct the crew where to (and not to) walk.

Eeyore, Pooh and Piglet in Disney’s live-action adventure CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.

Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl make their first appearance in a live-action film as three-dimensional characters in “Christopher Robin.”

Cinematographer Matthias Königswieser chose to shoot the film with traditional handheld cameras to help the stuffed animals’ motions look more believable. They were then brought to life via photo-realistic computer animation in post-production, immersed in mid-century London as well as in nature.

Actual stuffed animals (or “stuffies,” as they were affectionately referred to on set), were physically created by the creature visual effects team at Animated Extras, the Oscar®-winning special effects shop at Shepperton Studios, for reference when blocking scenes and for interaction with the actors. A great deal of care went into their creation, with special attention being paid to Winnie the Pooh’s tummy (to make sure it had the proper cuddle factor), to Tigger’s expressions (so he could effectively register surprise, anger and bewilderment) and to Eeyore (to make sure he had the proper amount of sag).

The Royal Hospital Chelsea and its magnificent front entrance doubled for the exterior of Christopher Robin’s boarding school. The Royal Hospital Chelsea is where the iconic Chelsea Pensioners, retired soldiers of the British Army, reside, so the production was especially considerate to ensure they could go about their daily routine unhindered. Filming took place over one day, but took 10 days to prep.

Over 400 extras dressed in period attire, hair and make-up were used for the scenes in the film taking place at the London train station (where Winnie the Pooh gets his red balloon). The scenes were filmed at a cruise terminal in the Port of Dover, a former train station shut down in 1994, which is situated at the end of a pier that extends 1,000 feet into the harbor.
