According to Variety, Hayley Atwell has joined the cast of Christopher Robin, Disney’s live-action Winnie The Pooh movie about an adult Christopher Robin who has somehow lost his imagination. Luckily, Pooh and his wacky animal friends will show up and try to help Robin regain his missing love for whimsy, presumably while making a few stops here and there for a smackerel of honey. Ewan McGregor is set to play the boring, uncreative adult Christopher Robin, meaning he’ll get to spend most of the movie with cartoon/CG versions of the Winnie The Pooh gang. Atwell will play his wife, a woman who somehow had no problem marrying a man who has no imagination. Hopefully she’ll at least get a chance to bust out those Agent Carter skills and beat up some Hydra goons.

Atwell also played Cinderella’s mother in the 2015 Cinderella movie, so even if ABC isn’t keeping Agent Carter on TV anymore, Disney clearly intends on keeping Atwell around.
