The working title for the film is ‘Christopher Robin.’ According to an exclusive, this would be produced by Boat Rocker Studios and Shamier Anderson and Stephan James’ Bay Mills Studios. The title is similar to what Walt Disney Pictures released in 2018.

The depiction of 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.’

Charlie Kesslering, Conrad Vernon, and Nick Nantell, alongside Anderson and James, will be the executive producers of the series. According to Nantell, he is grateful that their production now has a chance to tell the stories of the characters alongside Bay Mills Studios in new and unexpected ways.

“There are few characters more iconic and known the world over for their adventures together than Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh,” said Nantell, whose an 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 series would mark the second A.A. Milne project to be produced after the British author’s copyright protection had already lapsed for 100 years. The first project that depicted the character in ‘a different and unexpected way’ is the horror film ‘Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey,’ where the anthropomorphic characters such as ‘Winnie The Pooh’ resorts to cannibalism after the food-giving Christopher Robin left the Hundred Acre Woods for college, resulting in the said town’s desolation.
