Vestige of the Vox Populi # 64
Remember Winnie the Pooh and The Hundred Acre Wood?
I love those characters and that world created by Milne; with an uncorrupted innocence and a vibrant spirit of youth.
But I also love re-imaginings in retellings of stories.
For example, Sci-Fi Channel is doing their Wizard of OZ reinterpreted mini-series this weekend. Plus the Battlestar Galactica remake. And the way Romeo and Juliet was reconceptualized as a modernized drama featuring DiCaprio and Danes. And sorta how Adam West portrayed a campy Batman. We know that show does not depict the genuine Batman of the comics, but suppose... what if?
What if... Winnie the Pooh was re-formatted as a live action representation using people in a contemporary setting?
It might look something like this:
I'd totally watch that!
