Variety reports that busy-bees Domhnall Gleeson (The Force Awakens) and Margot Robbie (The Legend of Tarzan, Suicide Squad) are both now slated to star in Goodbye Christopher Robin, a movie about Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne.

The movie charts the difficult relationship between the writer and his son Robin, from his birth in 1920 through the creation of Pooh, who was inspired by one of Robin’s teddy bears, to the 1930s, when the publication of the books meant Robin had to deal with being a sudden celebrity.

He himself was the basis for the character Christopher Robin, while his toys lent their names to most of the other characters in the Pooh world, including Tigger, Eyeore, Piglet, and Roo.

It marks the first time Domhnall and Margot have shared a screen since 2013’s About Time, when Margot’s character Charlotte cruelly turned down Domhnall’s Tim, twice, one of the many drawbacks of time travel. In this one, however, Domhnall will play A.A. Milne, and Margot his wife.

We love a happy ending.
