    Disney is making a name for itself in wringing life out of existing franchises, creating sequels to much-loved classics no-one knows they need.

    By clashing harsh reality with nostalgic fantasy without fully committing to a target audience, Christopher Robin tells a story that goes somewhere but nowhere at the same time – it’s a cute diversion that is missing something: a concept looking for a genre.

    As Pooh himself observes, “When you are a Bear of Very Little brain, and you Think Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.”

    “Bother.”

    An odd movie which doesn't seem sure whether it's aimed primarily at kids or adults, Christopher Robin doesn't quite hit either mark. It's a nice-ish movie and it's hard not to love Pooh Bear but so much of the promise of the trailer is missing.
