As reported by Variety, it seems our favorite Christopher Robin from “Winnie-the-Pooh” is returning. However, it’s with a wild twist. Specifically, he’s coming back to us in an R-rated live-action/animation hybrid series.
“Christopher Robin is a disillusioned New Yorker navigating his quarter-life crisis with the help of the weird talking animals who live beyond a drug-induced portal outside his derelict apartment complex, the Hundred Acres,” the official logline reads.
The project is in development from Boat Rocker Studios and Shamier Anderson and Stephan James’ Bay Mills Studios.
The official logline for the project, currently titled “Christopher Robin,” states, “Christopher Robin is a disillusioned New Yorker navigating his quarter-life crisis with the help of the weird talking animals who live beyond a drug-induced portal outside his derelict apartment complex, the Hundred Acres.”
The script for the project was written by Charlie Kesslering. Additionally, he will serve as the project’s executive producer. Nick Nantell executive produces for Boat Rocker along with Anderson and James for Bay mills.
“There are few characters more iconic and known the world over for their adventures together than Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh,” said Nantell, executive vice president of creative affairs for Boat Rocker Studios, Scripted. “We’re grateful to be working with the Bay Mills team, Charlie Kesslering, and Conrad Vernon on a project that takes these characters to new, unexpected, and really funny places.”
“This project takes everything you think you know about Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh and creates something completely fresh and undeniably funny,” added Anderson and James. “We’re excited to partner with Boat Rocker, Charlie, and Conrad on this journey to a truly creative space where anything is possible for these characters.”
The copyright protection on the characters ran out in 2022, when the characters first entered the public domain. This is the latest project to be announced since the horror film “Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey.”
