Not satisfied with turning every Disney princess ever into a live action film star, Disney is now going after the animals!

Relative unknown writer-director Alex Ross Perry has been hired on for the film, which will focus on an adult Christopher Robin returning to the Hundred Acre Wood. I imagine it'll be like that time a grizzly ate a GoPro, pictured above.
The Rock's Bambi reboot is also looking more and more real with every passing day.

Dwayne Johnson has announced his role as the male lead in Disney's upcoming Polynesian mythology inspired film, Moana. His role has not been officially announced, but he will likely play the god Maui, travel companion and guide of Disney's first Polynesian princess, Moana. Not only is he acting in the movie, but he's singing too. Wondering if he's got the pipes? Yeah, he totally does:
