L'univers de Star Wars est amorcé avec le conflit entre la République galactique et la Confédération des systèmes indépendants, alliance de planètes séparatistes. Cette confédération entraîne des dirigeants de la République dans des affaires ingérables à cause des manigances du Chancelier Suprême Palpatine, chef d'État de la République, qui dit servir la démocratie tout en visant secrètement à établir un empire. Pour rétablir la paix, les Jedi combattent les ennemis de la République, sans savoir que les deux camps sont manipulés par les Seigneurs Sith (Palpatine étant en réalité le Seigneur Sith Dark Sidious). Les Jedi, comme les Sith, sont sensibles à la Force, une capacité d'origine physiologique qui permet à leurs détenteurs d'acquérir certains pouvoirs surnaturels.

Le film commence durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, en 1941, quand Alan Alexander Milne – surnommé "Blue" par ses amis et sa famille – et sa femme, Daphne, reçoivent un télégramme chez eux. C'est à partir de ce moment que nous revenons quelques décennies en arrière, lorsque Blue est sur le front de la Bataille de la Somme. Ensuite, nous reprenons avec sa vie en Angleterre lorsque sa femme accouche de leur enfant et qu’il a un flash-back des souffrances et traumatismes vécu à la guerre. Daphne espérait une fille, et fut déçue d'avoir à la place un fils, qu'ils nommèrent Christopher Robin Milne, dit "Billy", et engagèrent une nourrice, Olive, qui eut pour tâche principal d’élever l’enfant.
