Disney is developing a live-action retelling of its animated children’s favorite, Winnie-the-Pooh, according to Deadline.

They hired Alex Ross Perry to write the screenplay, which will focus on a grownup Christopher Robin, the owner of Pooh and the rest of his stuffed animal friends.

Disney bought the rights to Winnie-the-Pooh in 1961, turning it into TV shows and four feature films. Naturally, the studio completely sterilized the original twin books written by A.A. Milne, “Winnie-the-Pooh” (1926) and “The House at Pooh Corner” (1928).

Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh for a teddy bear owned by his son, Christopher Robin Milne, who was the basis for the character Christopher Robin. Christopher’s toys also lent their names to most of the other characters, except for Owl and Rabbit.

Alex Ross Perry graduated from NYU’s film program in 2006. He worked at an East Village video store , where he met many of the cast and crew members who would later work on his films. To date, he has produced “Impolex” (2009), “The Color Wheel” (2011), “Listen Up Philip” (2014), and “Queen of Earth” (2015).
