Winnie the Pooh and his Hundred Acre Wood friends.

4 Apr – Disney is on a roll; after churning out animation-to-live-action successes such as "Alice in Wonderland", "Maleficent" and the recently-released "Cinderella", the studio is trudging forward with turning more of its many classic animations into live-action versions.

After "The Jungle Book", "Beauty and the Beast", "Dumbo" and the newly-announced "Mulan", Deadline reports that a certain honey-loving bear from "Winnie the Pooh" along with the other Hundred Acre Wood adorable residents are next in line to come to life with a touch of the Disney magic.

"Listen Up Philip" writer-director, Alex Ross Perry, will helm the upcoming movie, which will focus on a now-adult Christopher Robin returning to the Hundred Acre Wood.

The titular bear from "Winnie the Pooh" is an anthropomorphic teddy bear created by A. A. Milne. Disney acquired the rights to it in 1961 and five years later, started producing what came to be one of its most successful franchises.

No release date, plot or cast details for the movie have been revealed at the time of writing.
