Disney Plans Live-Action “Winnie the Pooh”

Disney Pictures is reportedly planning a live action feature adaptation of the animated classic “Winnie The Pooh”.

Alex Ross Perry, who helmed Sundance indie feature “Listen Up Philip,” will direct the project which reimagines Christopher Robin as an adult.

It’s as an adult that he is brought back in touch with the famous bear and the Hundred Acre Wood, all created by author A. A. Milne.

This comes on top of Disney’s other live-action remakes and reimaginings of their classic animated and live-action films in the works including “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pete’s Dragon” and “Dumbo”.
