The audacity of Disney!

I may be a little behind. While visiting my best friend,who is the father of a youngster....I discovered that Christopher Robin had been fired, dumped, thrown out! What is this about?

Shocking news. Disney is banishing Christopher Robin from
its new series of Pooh. Even the Bear of Little Brain will take
second billing in the new series, to be called, “My Friends
Tigger and Pooh.” Christopher Robin will be replaced by a
Tom-Boy girl.
“We got raised eyebrows, even in-house, but the feeling was
that these timeless characters really needed a breath of fresh
air that only the introduction of someone new could provide,”
Nancy Kanter, of the Disney Channel, told USA Today.

This is who Disney replaced Christopher with:

Why couldn't Disney simply introduce a new character along with Christopher Robin? The possibilities of a new friend could have been more imaginative than what they came up with!

As with the last post, Disney had an opportunity to present a new Pooh character who represented the not so simple world of today!

How could a 'timeless' character need a 'breat of freah air'? They contradict themselves!
