Christopher Robin Blu-ray review

Nov 07, 2018- Permalink

In Christopher Robin, Ewan McGregor is the adult version of the titular character. Now a manager at a company facing layoffs, Christopher is dealing with a great amount of stress when he gets visited by his honey-loving childhood friend, Winnie the Pooh. Pooh helps him reconnect with his inner child and, more importantly, his family. The story is now available to take home in a Blu-ray combo pack, which includes a DVD and digital download code.

The AVC-encoded 1080p transfer is presented in the movie’s original 2.39:1 aspect ratio. The video presentation is very good and Winnie the Pooh and the gang blend perfectly with their live action surroundings. The detail on these characters is excellent and the fur fabric hairs move independently and realistically. The colour palette is muted, but again details are very clear and the movie just looks charming.

On the audio side, we get an English 7.1 DTS-HDMA soundtrack as well as a 2.0 descriptive audio track and French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks. Subtitles are available for English SDH, French and Spanish.

Besides coming with a DVD and digital download code, the extras include looks at how the characters are brought to life, a history of the voice actors who have played Pooh, and a look at the love Walt Disney had for this iconic character.

Great for families, and with good video and audio presentations, Christopher Robin is a good addition to your Disney home library.
