Disney Planning Live Action Feature for Winnie the Pooh


With Disney’s live action adaptation of the Cinderella franchise proving to be a success, the House of Mouse seems to have found the confidence to give more of their properties an additional dimension. It has been reported by Deadline.com that the studio is in the planning stages of launching live-action film based on Winnie the Pooh.

According to the report, Disney has tapped indie filmmaker Alex Ross Perry in order to pen the script for the live action Winnie the Pooh film, which is said to focus on an adult Christopher Robin as he returns to Hundred Acre Woods.

With Cinderella reportedly grossing over $335 million worldwide, it is no surprise that Disney is experimenting more with live action adaptations. And Winnie the Pooh is not the only franchise on the horizon, as it has also been reported that a Mulan live action feature is in the works, while live action versions of the Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and Dumbo are planned.
