Bringing down the Bear....
An article in USA Today outlines The Disney Company's plans to replace Christopher Robin with a "Tomboyish 6 year old girl" :wow:
Read the whole article here...
With the success of the Winnie the Pooh franchise, why on earth would they want to do this?
Not to mention that boy friendly characters and stories at Disney are few and far between. Little girls already love Pooh and Friends, why must they change the basics of this 80 year old classic piece of literature.
One of the best things about Winnie the Pooh is that a Grandmother, Mother and child can all sit down together and know the characters of this age old tale and its off spring. Now, as in so much of the other programming children watch, they will have to explain the show to the adults, or worse yet, the adults will have a "reason" to bow out of watching along with the children.
Nancy Kanter of the Disney Channel is quoted as saying "We hope people will fall for this new tomboyish girl. The last thing we want to be is the ones who brought the franchise down."
Good Luck with that.
Sad. Very sad. :no:
