Winnie-the-Pooh’s origin story began with a war?
Reality and fantasy are opposite points of view, each clamoring for our allegiance in a myriad of situations throughout our lives. Which branch on this tree should we reach for? There are rational reasonings for leaning towards both reality and fantasy, given certain circumstances and moments.
But what if the two were interlinked?
For the British author A.A. Milne (who died on January 31, 1956), he discovered a moment in his life when he didn’t have to choose between reality and fantasy.
The second trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin was recently released.
Goodbye Christopher Robin arrives in theaters on October 13, 2017.
It’s still surreal that A.A. Milne made the jump from the lasting effects of war to talking stuffed animals.
Surreal, yet very real.
Or, in other words: Fantastical, yet firmly rooted in reality.
