Ewan McGregor reveals the horror show of puppets required to shoot ‘Christopher Robin’

Ready to have nightmares about Winnie The Pooh?

Ewan McGregor appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers as a guest to talk about his upcoming film, Christopher Robin, which follows the grown-up protagonist as he gets a visit from his childhood friends, Winnie the Pooh and the gang.

The toys, of course, had to be digitally added to the film, but to make life easier for the animators, real-life puppets were made and used during filming.

However, McGregor revealed the surprising and pretty horrific truth about these puppets – a truth which has us certain children wouldn’t have been allowed to enter this particular film set!
