The familiar face of Ewan McGregor will return to the big screen for people of all ages to enjoy. If you aren't familiar with the name, you'd all know Ewan as one of the most cherished characters from the Star Wars prequels, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan is set to play the role of Christopher Robin from Disney's "Winnie The Pooh." However, unlike the past live-action Disney films, this one will consist of a completely original plot.

A businessman, deep in the Hundred Acre Woods

Christopher Robin is all grown up, and all the child-like imagination that kept his forest friends alive is gone. Christopher is simply trying to make his way in the world as a simple businessman.

The plot of the film will follow Christopher as his old forest friends try to recreate that child-like wonder within his independent adult life.

What adventures wait for the whole gang isn't clear as of now, but this does raise the question of what sort of film we could expect. Will it be engrossed in reality? Or will we be thrown back, deep into the hundred acre woods?

Ewan McGregor has been keeping busy

Ewan has been back in the movie spotlight for the past year or so. He reprised his role in the "Trainspotting" sequel ("T2 Trainspotting") which came out in January of this year. Ewan also was Lumiere (the candelabra) in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.

"American Pastoral" was directed by Ewan, who also starred in the 2016 film. And lastly, he's become two leading roles in the 3rd, and newest, season of FX's popular show, "Fargo" in which he plays two twin brothers, Emmit and Ray, with a sibling rivalry.

Not to mention the confirmed Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off film, which won't come out for some time. However, it makes sense for Ewan to step into other Disney films, seeing as he's already got his foot firmly in the door.

Other anticipated Disney projects

In addition to the live-action "Winnie the Pooh" adaptation, Disney has announced other old animated films it will resurrect to the big screens. Over a dozen classic titles are expected to come to theaters.

However, most do not have a release date. So, while we're waiting, we'll just have to see what more exciting news Disney can announce. I think I speak for all of us when I say that I'll be glad to see Pooh and the gang back in the Hundred Acre Woods. The film will no doubt create new memories, while tapping into old nostalgia.
