Trailer Round Up: The Grinch, Mary Poppins Returns, and Christopher Robin

A few new trailers have come out over the last couple weeks and you can check them out below.

The Grinch

Yes, it’s another remake of this Dr Seuss classic, this time with Benedict Cumberbatch voicing the vile green meanie. I feel like this story has been retold more than enough, but I guess there’s always a new generation of kids to cash in on. Cumberbatch is a good choice for the role, though.

The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

Mary Poppins Returns

The sequel to another classic movie…that no one really asked for. That may not be a bad thing as the trailer looks promising. Emily Blunt looks great as Poppins but its going to be difficult to fill Julie Andrews shoes for sure.

In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Christopher Robin

Ewan McGregor plays as an adult Christopher Robin who is visited by his childhood friend, Winnie the Pooh. Seems like an interesting concept that should make for a heartwarming, Disney tale. I can’t help but think of this as a Disney version of Ted. Don’t lie, you did too.
