Christopher Robin: Winnie the Pooh film denied release in China


China's film authorities have denied a release to Disney's new Winnie the Pooh film.

No reason has been given for the decision, but it's believed to be part of a nationwide clampdown on references to the beloved children's character.

Chinese authorities have been blocking images of Pooh on social media since last year, after the AA Milne bear became a symbol of political dissent.

It's after the Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been compared to the bear.
