There’s a new face in the Hundred Acre Wood. According to Variety, Hayley Atwell has joined the Christopher Robin film. She joins Ewan McGregor, cast as Robin, and director Marc Forester.

Christopher Robin sees the young boy from the stories all grown-up. Unfortunately, because of life’s difficulties and stresses, Robin has lost all his imagination. Because of this, the animals from the Hundred Acre Wood re-enter his life and try to help bring it back. Atwell has been cast as his wife. It is not currently known how extensive her role will be in the film.
