NEWS - Jim Cummings Voices Tigger in Christopher Robin, Too
Reported by NCZ on Fri May 25 2018

A small change has been made to the voice cast of Christopher Robin that is sure to be a treat for voice actor fans. Although Tigger was originally announced to be voiced by screen actor Chris O'Dowd, an updated voice cast provided alongside the film's new trailer has announced that he will indeed be voiced by his longtime voice actor, Jim Cummings - on top of his role as Pooh.


Here is the current voice cast for the film, boasting a bevy of British bedfellows:



  • Jim Cummings as Pooh and Tigger

  • Brad Garrett as Eeyore

  • Toby Jones as Owl

  • Nick Mohammed as Piglet

  • Peter Capaldi as Rabbit

  • Sophie Okonedo as Kanga


The film's new trailer can be seen below, in anticipation of its release in cinemas on August 3.

The G rating is officially dead. Keep in mind that, just like My Little Pony, all previous Pooh movies were G rated while the cartoons are TV-Y.

Looks cute. Although I can't be the only one who thinks the way the animals move kinda looks off. Almost....Uncanny, even. I don't know. I kinda freaks me out.

I do like the change. Although I would have liked to see what Chris O'Dowd would do with the character. Especially when the rest of the recast is great. Brad Garrett as Eeyore, that's perfect!

Still, Always nice to see voice actors get more love and more roles in big budget movies. Especially when nowadays it seems like they lean heavy on star power and only hire big name actors who do nothing but read a script.
