Disney's Christopher Robin

Quote:
Marc Forster will direct “Christopher Robin,” the live-action adaptation of Disney’s classic cartoon “Winnie the Pooh.”

Alex Ross Perry is set to write the script.

The film will follow Christopher Robin, the little boy who befriends a lovable bear in the celebrated A.A. Milne books, as an adult. According to sources, the film will share similarities with Seth MacFarlane’s fantasy-buddy film “Ted,” but center more on family fun than vulgarities.

The character of Winnie the Pooh was created by Milne for a collection of stories in the books “Winnie-the-Pooh” (1926) and “The House at Pooh Corner” (192. Disney licensed the rights to the bear in 1961, leading to TV shows and four feature films: “The Tigger Movie,” “Piglet’s Big Movie,” “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie,” and “Winnie the Pooh.”

Kristin Burr will oversee the project for the studio.

The film falls in line with Disney’s slate of live-action adaptations that include next year’s “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin” — which Guy Ritchie recently came on to direct — “Snow White,” “Lion King” — helmed by “The Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau — and “Mulan.”

Another Christopher Robin project, “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” is also in the works at Fox Searchlight starring Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson.

Forster — repped by WME — most recently directed “All I See Is You,” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and stars Blake Lively and Jason Clarke.

This could be the cutest Disney movie ever as long as Pooh and the gang look like plush toys.

I didn't see that. In fact, I hardly saw any of the 2015 films that were nominated at the 88th Academy Awards. The subject matter of most of them were too depressing and serious. I very much enjoyed his screen-writing work for Up though.

This will be a total tearjerker and the first Disney live action remake I'm interested to see.
