In case you weren't convinced that Disney were not all in when it comes to remaking their most beloved animated classics into live action movies then here is a timely reminder that you are greatly mistaken.
Winnie the Pooh is the latest animated Disney character that will be making a live action appearance in the not too distant future. Marc Foster will direct Christopher Robin, which will follow the little boy who befriends a lovable bear in the celebrated A.A. Milne books, as an adult. The report from Variety claims that the film will share similarities with Seth MacFarlane's Ted, though we doubt any of the lewd humour.
Christopher Robin joins the long list of projects in development at Disney alongside The Lion King, Aladdin, Snow White and Mulan.
Disney licensed the rights to Winnie the Pooh in 1961 and have produced several TV shows and four feature films starring the character.
It is the second Winnie the Pooh related film that will be on our screens in the coming years. There is also the A.A. Milne biopic, Goodbye Christopher Robin which will star our own Domhnall Gleeson alongside Margot Robbie.
