Now Disney Plans Live-Action WINNIE THE POOH!

Disney Upcoming Live-Action

A few days before, I have named a few more live-action remakes that could be in the works at Disney, but Winnie the Pooh didn’t come to my mind.

According to Deadline.com, the Mouse House will turn the animated classic Winnie the Pooh into a live-action feature film as well. Listen Up Philip director Alex Ross Perry will bring the project – which reimagines Christopher Robin as an adult – to fruition.

There are no details available about the plot, but it’s safe to assume that Robin returns to Hundred Acre Wood to reunite with his animal pals: a honey-obsessed bear, a clinically depressed donkey, and a bumbling pig.

I dunno. Likely they were looking at the recent success of the live-action Paddington Bear movie and wondering whether their own beloved bear could enjoy similar CG life in theaters. I don’t know about you guys, but I have a headache.

David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) is already in production on a Pete’s Dragon remake, slated for an August 12, 2016 release. Disney is also developing a live-action Mulan adaptation, as well as Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book, set for release on April 15, 2016, Bill Condon‘s Beauty and the Beast, set for release on March 17, 2017 and Tim Burton’s Dumbo likely for a 2018 release.

“The line must be drawn here! This far, no further!”
