Disney's cartoon-to-live-action machine just keeps on running, with "Winnie the Pooh" becoming the latest of the studio's animated classics in line to get the live-action treatment, according to online reports. It joins a handful of other in-development projects including "The Jungle Book," "Beauty and the Beast," Dumbo" and -- revealed just this week -- "Mulan."

It also follows the in-theater success of such similar live-action adaptations of "Alice in Wonderland, which is getting a sequel, "Through the Looking Glass," next year; "Maleficent," based on the villain from "Sleeping Beauty"; and "Cinderella," which is still playing in theaters.
