    ...

    The story will pick up with Christopher Robin, now all grown up. Something or other leads him back to his beloved Winnie the Pooh and the Hundred Acre Wood.

    I don't see HOW this can work. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

      I'm guessing it'll go down the route that Paddington Bear did.

      I hope I'm wrong.

        It's a reeeely long-handled shovel Disney is using to scrape the bottom of their creative barrel.

          ^Its when they lift the barrel up to scrape underneath, that's the time to worry.

          I have to admit though, you do have to wonder why. OK, I get the live-action princess adaptations, but Dumbo, Rescue Rangers and Pooh?

          It does seem like a quick cash-in on their older characters. And its not like they need it.. two of the three studio acquisitions have probably paid off their purchase price and Lucasfilm is bound to achieve that soon.

          It makes you wonder, are they just not liking up coming new and original pitches or have they just hitched their wagon to this live-action-remake and ran with it?

            ^ Exactly. "New and original" is an oxymoron for Disney. They're all about brand acquisition and marketing. To Disney, there's no essential difference between George Lucas' Star Wars and Disney's animated Winnie the Pooh. Both are brands to be mined and marketed to their respective demographics. Both are brands that today's Disney had no hand in creating.

            The fact that one of those brands came from a company called "Disney" is irrelevant -- today's conglomeration of Disney marketeers is as far from the creative soul of Walt's Disney Company as a flock of hawks from the moon.

                The Winnie the Pooh characters are like family to me. So this decision is very upsetting. I can tolerate Disney remaking The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, and Mulan. But Pooh...? I feel like they are stretching it thin with their over saturation of "live action adaptations of animated classics". Disney is very bad at starting trends and milking them dry.

                Let's just say if they do anything to compromise the characters childlike charm, to put it lightly, I will not be pleased.
