Get ready to take a trip to the Hundred Acre Wood---Disney is set to release a live-action adaptation of the animated classic Winnie The Pooh, Deadline reports. The studio has tapped Alex Ross Perry to re-imagine the story, which will focus on Christopher Robin as an adult as he returns to the home of A.A. Milne’s famous teddy bear and his furry pals. No further details on the movie have been released.
It seems like Disney is on a roll. Winnie the Pooh is just the latest in a long line of their cartoon favorites getting the live-action treatment. Earlier this week they announced that a Mulan remake was in the early stages of development, and a star-studded version of Beauty and the Beast will hit theaters in 2017. We can't wait to see how everyone's favorite willy, nilly, silly old bear comes to life on the big screen.
