A minute into the trailer, Christopher Robin gets introduced to a unique situation many adults might desire: He gets help from a childhood friend. From a child’s perspective, the movie is a story about the bear, but for an adult who is still in touch with their inner child, it is a lot more. When one faces life struggles, it is the memory of the childhood adventure that can trigger a strong emotional response. This is when some adults resort to watching their favorite children’s shows or visiting long-forgotten places. The similar happens to Christopher Robin, only his childhood stuffed toy is very much alive, causing all sorts of trouble along the way. Here’s where inclusion, a very hot mainstream topic, comes into play. Winnie, who is alive, talking, stuffed bear, is struck with the realization he must hide his true nature for the sake of his safety among people.

What’s noticeable before the movie even airs, is that plenty of adults aren’t ashamed to talk about how much they look forward to watching it. This shows that the video sparked the interest of both young and adult audience and might gain much more attention than it initially expected.
