Disney's Christopher Robin Won't Receive China Release

China has banned the live-action Disney movie "Christopher Robin", possibly because of its campaign against comparisons between the movie's character Winnie the Pooh and President Xi Jinping (習近平), according to the Hollywood Reporter. The first reason is simply that there are too many major Hollywood tentpoles already in the Chinese film market. Last summer, authorities began blocking pictures of Winnie the Pooh on social media given that the character has become a symbol of the resistance in China with foes of the ruling Communist Party, namely Chinese leader Xi Jinping. In June, Chinese authorities blocked HBO after Last Week Tonight host John Oliver mocked Xi's sensitivity over being compared to Winnie the Pooh.

"Christopher Robin" has the misfortune to come out the same year as "Paddington 2", one of the best stuffed animal movies ever made. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside. Marc Forster, who directed from a script by Alex Ross Perry, doesn't have an especially fanciful imagination, but he keeps things moving along at a fairly brisk pace. Now a grown man (Ewan McGregor), Christopher spends life as an adult trying, yet struggling, to balance his responsibilities at work while still carving out time for his wife Evelyn (Hayley Atwell) and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). Voicing the characters from the hundred acre wood include Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh, Chris O'Dowd as Tigger, Brad Garrett as Eeyore, Toby Jones as Owl, Nick Mohammed as Piglet, Peter Capaldi as Rabbit, and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.
