LONDON - Disney is set to bring back popular animated character Winnie the Pooh on the big screen.
The company’s officials said that it has started working on a new Winnie the Pooh feature film, and hopes to release it in spring 2011, reports the Telegraph.
They will weave together five unfilmed Winnie the Pooh stories and promise to bring in same humour found in the original A.A Milne books.
