Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been compared to the bear, Winnie the Pooh

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

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.

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

The comparisons began in 2013 when an image of Xi walking with President Barack Obama was posted alongside a picture of Pooh walking next to Tigger.
