This is the best argument I've seen for copyright protection ever. And I'm really not a fan of Disney. But doing this with one of the most charming, innocent, and wonderful children's books ever written is a cheap fucking dick move. Sure - someone's going to do it, but I can only hate the massive twat who got there first.

Don't worry, it'll vanish to the depths of Amazon Prime's horror category very quickly.

I tried to read Winnie the Pooh to my daughter and it's not a book for kids is it? It's a guy writing pretty nicely but smugly about stuff that kids won't get. 

 

At least that's my hot take as a judgemental illiterate dad.

Yeah it’s quite difficult to read, I found and quite dull. Neither of my boys liked the books but like the various Disney adaptations.

Indeed.

 

My daughter has a box set thing of 30 stories and I used to pick one up now and then but could never finish even the shortest of books.

 

However we recently made a conscious effort to read through them all, in order, and it’s made a world of difference - or maybe it’s just cost she’s a bit older now (still only 4, mind) but she seems more interested.

 

There’s a lot that goes straight over her head though, plus far too much dialogue and I’m usually too tired to differentiate voices so it’s hard to understand anyway, before you even factor in all the charming quips that kids simply won’t get.

 

Eeyore is class though. I’ve a lot of time for Eeyore.

 

Also Tigger might as well not be in it, he features so little. I remember him being quite prominent when watching it. Surprised me.

I absolutely adored reading it. I genuinely think it's one of my favourite books - simple, charming, and beautifully written. But I did first read it when I was about 35. And I think I'd read The Tao Of Pooh beforehand, which might have helped (it's well worth giving The Tao Of Pooh a go - also very good).

It's definitely beautifully written. But not in a way that kids will appreciate. Personally think stuff like the Gruffalo is better for kids as it's lyrical and understandable. It's like a lot of older kids' books. Written by a old well educated person mainly for themselves or the money.

It's getting a 1 day cinema release in the US in February

 

 

 

And the same team are to make Bambi: The Reckoning, shooting in January. No plot details, but safe to assume it's a Bambi revenge flick.

 

The people who make these things must be massive weirdos.

In 2023, the first Hardy Boys books enter public domain in the US. And in 2024, at long last, Steamboat Willie and Plane Crazy (but not Mickey Mouse™ as a trademarked brand, or the bit that Disney uses as a logo at the start of their features).

 

So that'll sort out their production s schedule for the next few years.

 

Can't see any famous children's books due to go into US public domain in '25 or '26. But they will be free to do horror reimaginings of Lady Chatterley's Lover and The Maltese Falcon. :eyebrows:
