Not even a week after Saturday Night Live brilliantly parodied Disney’s recent live-action remakes, the Mouse leaned right into it.
Joining the upcoming live action versions of The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and Tim Burton’s Dumbo (no joke) will be a live-action Winnie the Pooh. While people are naturally having terrifying flashbacks of the Alvin movies Fox crapped out, Disney has yet to stoop to that level of poop-humor. Likely they were looking at the recent (critical) success of the live-action Paddington Bear movie that recently came out.
Still, they should really do the Bambi/Fast and the Furious mash-up that SNL made.
