This Christopher Robin Special Feature is presented in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company...

The Walt Disney Studios lot in sunny Burbank, California is a magical place as-is... a place where the power of imagination has been harnessed to shape and realize timeless stories that will continue to inspire audiences until the end of time. But on Monday night, something truly unique happened as that magic manifested itself in new ways. To celebrate the release of Disney's Christopher Robin, the lot was transformed into a wondrous place that had not only been ripped from the pages, but had leaped from the screen. For the World Premiere and red carpet, cast, crew and invited guests were welcomed not just onto the Studio lot, but into The Hundred Acre Wood.

Winnie the Pooh is a very important character around these parts. Sure, my wife and I grew up on the famous stories from A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard, but there's also a connection that's a little more recent. Back in August of 2009, we were living in a one-bedroom apartment in northern Illinois when the birth of our first daughter took place on the exact date of our 10th wedding anniversary. That bedroom was unusually spacious, the same length as our living room and kitchen combined, and thus it became half-nursery, with the decor themed as "Classic Pooh." Nine months later, we bought the house that would become "Rock Father HQ," and soon after little Addie would discover a particular depiction of that silly little bear in the form of a stuffed animal that I'd bought for my wife many years before... Poopsie Bear. Nine years later, we have two daughters who love the stories from the Hundred Acre Wood, but it's still Addie who's been enchanted by them. Poopsie is still her most prized possession and companion, and above her bed hangs one reminder of that nursery in the apartment where it all began: a picture of Piglet and Pooh. This is why my next adventure in Los Angeles is so special, and why walking the red carpet at the World Premiere of Disney's Christopher Robin is something that I'd quietly hoped for since the film was first announced.

This week, I will embark on my latest adventure with The Walt Disney Company - my 10th trip on Mickey's dime (disclosure and all) - as part of a that will work on promotion for the theatrical launch of Christopher Robin (#ChristopherRobinEvent), along with the in-home release of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War (#InfintyWarBluRay) while gearing-up for the November release of Ralph Breaks the Internet (#RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent), the 57th feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios

With Walt Disney Studios' Christopher Robin headed for theaters on August 3 (see the latest trailer here), the folks over at Funko are giving some characters from the film a Pop! Vinyl treatment. For the first wave, they're bringing Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore into the format, capturing the cinematic look, which itself is inspired both by Classic Pooh and Disney's previous designs on the animated versions. All of these are available for pre-order now from my friends at Entertainment Earth, while a special edition flocked Pooh Bear with a red balloon is available exclusively at Box Lunch stores.

Later this month, I will be back on the ground in Los Angeles, working alongside my friends at Walt Disney Studios for the launch of their new film, Christopher Robin. Today, tickets for the film went on-sale (get 'em via my affiliate, Fandango) and families will get their first look into the Hundred Acre Wood on the night of August 2, for preview showings ahead of its August 3 release. As those tickets went on-sale, Disney also just released a new "Adventure" sneak-peek and an all-new featurette about the legacy of the famous characters created by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard. Take a look!

I will preface this by saying that I have an overwhelming love for Winnie the Pooh. Our oldest daughter's first nursery (we were in an apartment before moving into our house) was decked-out in "Classic Pooh," and her all-time favorite and most cherished toy is a plush "Poopsie Bear." While I loved Pooh as a child, as a parent I will always have fond memories of sharing the Disney Winnie the Pooh tales with our girls, and this summer a new one will hit theaters. Christopher Robin is a live-action film that will open the world of The Hundred Acre Wood as characters from that world enter ours. See the teaser below...
