As well as live-action movies based on their feature-length animated classics, Disney has been working on a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie. Now that film has found its Christopher Robin, with THR reporting that Ewan McGregor is in talks to star.
As you may have guessed, this is planned as a movie about Chrisopher Robin as an adult, having left the hundred-acre wood behind many years before. He is now an adult who ‘has lost his sense of imagination and is a businessman focused on work and success.’ As you might expect, things begin to change when Winnie, Piglet and co. come back into his life.
Marc Forster (World War Z, Finding Neverland) is set to direct, with Disney having just brought in Hidden Figures’ Allison Schroeder to rewrite the script. It’s not known yet when we might get to see the movie.
