Prolific writer A. A. Milne first introduced us to Winnie the Pooh when he wrote When We Were Young. Our first iteration of our beloved character was in the year 1926 where Winnie the Pooh was named Mr. Edward Bear. Throughout the years, Winnie the Pooh has changed and developed into someone very special.
In a twist of events, in January 2022, Winnie the Pooh became a part of the public domain. People were quick to create their own iteration of this character in comical and humorous ways. Will this dilute the IP in any way?
Winnie The Pooh On Disney+
At launch, Disney+ had about 15 titles ranging from early 90’s to 2000’s favorites. Our last two visits with a Hundred Acre Wood character were on September 11, 2020, where viewers could watch Christopher Robin (2018) and then February 2022 when A Valentine For You began streaming.. What title will be next? Is there a new iteration in the works?
