While Christopher Robin hasn't set the world on fire in terms of box-office numbers, there is one metric where Disney's live-action Winnie the Pooh sequel has succeeded wildly: the world of memes. More specifically, the millennial phenomenon known as 'prequel memes,' an active internet community based around references to the critically-maligned Star Wars prequels directed by George Lucas. Obviously the connecting factor is the presence of actor Ewan McGregor, whose playful yet bizarrely sterile performance as Obi-Wan Kenobi made him a standout member of the prequel cast.

So while Christopher Robin failed to create a wave of nostalgia for the Disney versions of A. A. Milne's timeless characters, it has given us an excuse to reminisce on the movie series that gave us Jar Jar Binks and Dexter Jettster.
