Ewan McGregor plays the titular Christopher Robin, who is now all grown up and haunted by traumas he endured during World War II.

Winnie the Pooh is coming back to the big screen this summer in Disney's Christopher Robin, and the first full-length trailer for the film has finally been released online.

The director and screenwriters Alex Ross Perry and Allison Schroeder have assembled a voice cast that includes Jim Cummings (Pooh), Chris O'Down (Tigger), Brad Garrett (Eeyore), and Toby Jones (Owl).

The trailer, posted exclusively today on Ellen DeGeneres' Ellentube, focuses more on the animals than previous teasers that set up the tale's starting-point dilemma: An adult Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) is an overworked London businessman who's apparently not been spending almost enough time with wife Evelyn (Hayley Atwell) and daughter Madeline (Bronte Carmichael). Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin rediscover the joys of family life, the value of friendship and to appreciate the simple pleasures in life once again.

Check out the new trailer below followed by some new images. In addition to McGregor, the film stars Hayley Atwell as wife Evelyn, Bronte Carmichael as daughter Madeline and Mark Gatiss as Giles Winslow, Christopher's boss. "The Jungle Book" producer Brigham Taylor is producing the live-action film.

Christopher Robin is slated to hit theaters on Friday, August 3.
