Then, like a guardian angel, Pooh Bear arrives. With his wise words and often misunderstood sayings, Pooh is as charming as ever as the walking, talking, teddy bear reminds Christopher that love is really all you need.
After getting himself lost in the big city, Christopher’s childhood pal needs to get home. While returning Pooh and reuniting with his childhood friends, Tigger, Piglet, Kanga, Eyore and many more, Christopher recalls his fond childhood memories.
But it’s not over there – the whole gang then return to London to inspire Madeline’s childhood and share their love with the next generation.
