For anyone who grew up reading and watching Winnie the Pooh, it turns out we were lied to the WHOLE time.

Yep, Winnie the Pooh is actually a female bear. Who knew, right?! And to really confuse things, she is from Canada, not England.

In a new picture book called Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear, we find out that Winnie is actually named after a Canadian black bear from London Zoo called Winnie (real name Winnipeg).

The new book was written by ​​Lindsay Mattick​, who is the granddaughter of the soldier who brought Winnie to England.

Lieutenant Harry Colebourn​ bought the bear for just $20 during the First World War.

The soldier and his bear became inseparable, until he was called away to France for army duties and had to leave Winnie at London Zoo.

There's a happy ending though because Winnie made a new friend very quickly; a boy who always visited her at the zoo, Christopher Robin.

It's starting to make sense now, right? Because Christopher was so fond of the bear, he named his own toy bear after Winnie. And who was Christopher's dad? Author ​AA Milne​, who went on to write the classic Winnie books.

Mystery solved, folks!

We all know Channing Tatum as the Hollywood heart throb, right? 

He's played several movie roles as the fit and hot young man stealing EVERYONE'S heart. 

But this weekend, Channing enacted a very different part than his usual muscle-bearing, shirtless hunk. He took on the role of Winnie the Pooh. 

Yep, you heard that right. And the snap of him is brilliant.

Mr Tatum uploaded a picture on Instagram of him dressed in a Winnie costume (along with a big belly) and shades.

He captioned the photo, "Pretty sure I terrified all the children at our daughter's Halloween carnival today. Btw – I'm pooh bear in case anyone can't tell."

He certainly doesn't look like our beloved Magic Mike anymore, but we think the real question is if his daughter went as Piglet? Because that would be the cutest daddy-daughter costume EVER.

The live-action remake of Winnie-the-Pooh is coming, it has been confirmed.

Unlike the children’s classic, the movie will be centres around the character Christopher Robin as a grown man rather than a boy with writer/direction Alex Ross Perry taking on the project.

It has been reported that the storyline will Christopher coming back to Hundred Acre Wood and back to his best friend, Pooh Bear.

Winne-the-Pooh is just another in a long list of Disney classics that are being remade with the release of Cinderella just last week.

Beauty and the Beast is also being recreated, with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens taking on the star roles. There is also an ongoing fan-based debate about who will take on the role of Mulan after it was announced that too would undergo the live-action treatment.

We won’t Disney by the time all of these recreations are finished.
