We're so excited we can bear-ly contain ourselves!
Disney is reportedly turning beloved children's lit character Winnie The Pooh into a live action movie star!
[ Related: Disney Has A Live-Action Mulan Remake In The Works! ]
Up-and-coming filmmaker Alex Ross Perry — who recently had a film festival favorite movie called Listen Up Philip — is already working on a screenplay!
The film will reportedly focus more on the human character Christopher Robin, who has become an adult and returns to meet his ol' friend Winnie and all of the woodland creatures at The Hundred Acre Wood.
We can't wait to see how they translate to live action!
We're sure whatever story they go with, it will involve lots of honey for Winnie! And lots of money for Disney!!

Shots of honey on the house! We're celebrating!
Brett Ratner (remember that guy who said rehearsing was for "f*gs?) and his firm RatPac Entertainment have purchased the film rights to the book Finding Winnie, which tells the actual story of the creation of Winnie the Pooh and about how one actual bear inspired a literary masterpiece!
Hmm good thing we don't see any Heffalumps or Woozles, because now at least we know we're not dreaming!
Unfortunately, the BOOK isn't even set to hit shelves until 2015! Oh bother! We have to wait until then to read it?!
Brett and his partners are already on the hunt for others to develop this story right, so it might be a while until we see Finding Winnie up on the screen.
This news totally gives us some 100 Acre Wood in our pants!

Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood where Christopher Robin KILLS!
A man from Port Neches, Texas with the same name as Winnie the Pooh's boyish ward just got convicted for the 2007 murder of his roommate, Wayne Beavers.
He was just sentenced to 56 years (talk about a little black rain cloud), which might give him some time to read the works of A. A. Milne.
Poor Pooh bear though. First, Eeyore has to go to rehab for an addiction to tranquilizers, and now this? Okay, so maybe THAT didn't happen, but it's still a possibility.
Maybe Gopher will try to Shawshank Christopher out of the big
house honey pot?!

It turns out binge drinking played a HUGE part in Snooki discovering a teeny-tiny
pizza sea bass baking in her Sicilian Chilean oven!!
Pr-Pr-Press play on the clip (above) to watch the Snooki & JWoww star share a surprising story of New Year's shenanigans!
Hint: It involves binge drinking, puking up guts, six different pregnancy tests, and a brooding stuffed donkey!!
Hmmm. Scratch that last one. We were thinking of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh!!

pooh black bear is back in the woods in Tennessee after getting help with a problem – a jar stuck on its head.
State wildlife officers looked for the bear for three weeks after reports he was caught in the jug. The Knoxville News Sentinel said the male bear was roaming around Newport, in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
On July 17, a wildlife officer was checking another report of the bear when the animal ran in front of her vehicle. Hammonds fired a tranquillizer dart and the bear collapsed in downtown Newport.
The bear weighed just 115 pounds, about half its expected weight. It was released into the Cherokee National Forest.
Wildlife officials believe the bear got into the jar while foraging through

After it became known that the Navy SEALs group responsible for killing Osama bin Laden was called SEAL Team 6, it was inevitable that SOMEONE would try to turn that information into profit.
Looks like Disney beat everyone else to the punch, because "three trademark applications" have been discovered, which were made by the Walt Disney Company in early May in an effort to secure the rights to "SEAL Team 6."
The trademark covers "'entertainment and education services,' 'toys, games and playthings' and 'clothing, footwear and headwear.'"
Who ever thought that the same company responsible for Winnie the Pooh would take on Osama Bin Laden's death?!?!? Crazy…
Do U think it's okay for Disney to profit from this? Or do U take issue with it?

Oh, man! We have a feeling that she's going to be giving Jack Johnson's Curious George album a run for its money!
Zooey Deschanel will apparently be contributing a few original songs for the upcoming reboot of Winnie The Pooh, and spoke out a bit about what drew her to the classic Disney animation!
Check out her comments, as well as a preview of the new song So Long (above)!
Goodness, her voice is just so lovely and soothing! We have a feeling it's going to be a perfect fit for the tone of this movie!
We're so excited!
What do U think??
