Another R-Rated ‘Christopher Robin’ Adaptation In The Works

According to Variety, news has emerged that another R-rated adaptation of the beloved children’s story, Winnie the Pooh, is in the works from Boat Rocker Studios and Bay Mills Studios. The adaptation, titled Christopher Robin, will be a hybrid of live-action and animation, and promises to be a fresh and funny take on the public domain story.

The series will follow Christopher Robin, a disillusioned New Yorker navigating his quarter-life crisis with the help of the talking animals who live beyond a drug-induced portal outside his derelict apartment complex, the Hundred Acres. The pilot will be directed by Conrad Vernon, known for his work on Sausage Party, and will be executive produced by Charlie Kesslering, Nick Nantell, Shamier Anderson, and Stephan James.

Boat Rocker StudiosNick Nantell expressed his excitement about the project, saying, “There are few characters more iconic and known the world over for their adventures together than Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. 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.”

Shamier Anderson and Stephan James of Bay Mills Studios echoed Nantell’s sentiments, adding, “This project takes everything you think you know about Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh and creates something completely fresh and undeniably funny. We’re excited to partner with Boat Rocker, Charlie, and Conrad on this journey to a truly creative space where anything is possible for these characters.”

While Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey has already made waves as an adult adaptation of the classic story, Christopher Robin promises to be a whole new take on the beloved characters. Fans can’t wait to see what kind of unexpected twists and turns are in store for them.
