In the forthcoming horror film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, the titular character is not at all like the lovable old bear you remember.
Even more so than previous depictions of Christopher Robin’s best friend, the maniacally grinning, the sledgehammer-wielding beast is confirmed by a recently released poster.
To be fair, Piglet isn’t exactly radiating warmth either. After word of the existence of the film written and directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield spread earlier this year, it went viral.
Recently, Frake-Waterfield acknowledged that his film depicts a rampage by Pooh and Piglet, two iconic characters who joined the public domain earlier this year, during an appearance on Dread Central’s Development Hell podcast.
Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey Storyline
The first official poster features a threatening Pooh Bear in a red top and holding a bloodstained ax in front of the moon with the tagline “THIS AIN’T NO BEDTIME STORY” surrounding the image.
Below, Piglet is shown brandishing a knife while erecting atop a forest-dwelling body. Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey looks to be a classic story with distinct gruesome adult undertones, as suggested by the poster.
The Studios Jagged Edge Productions and In Studios Worked Together on The Film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. the Film’s Producers Are Rhys Frake-Waterfield and Scott Jeffrey, and It’s Stuart Alson Is the Executive Producer.
When can we expect to see Winnie the Pooh and the release of Blood and Honey?
Production on Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey reportedly ended in September of this year, but the movie has yet to receive a release date.
Waterfield assured the media that they would rush the edit and post-production work because of all the attention the film was receiving. “Nonetheless, checking to see if it’s still edible. This will be one of our top priorities.”
There are a number of talented women in the cast of “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey,” including Amber Doig-Thorne and Danielle Scott.
Amber Doig-Thorne, already a successful actress, writer, and producer, is set to add the character of Alice to her repertoire in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.
Star of such films as “Prototype” and “Spider from the Attic” as well as “Mauled Women” Danielle Scott plays one of the women with enticing roles. On the other hand, Maria Taylor plays Maria, Danielle Ronald plays Zoe, and Chris Cordell plays a scary Piglet.
Based on the promotional images, Piglet appears to be given a new identity as a warped character that may or may not is bothered by the idea of ethics.
The characters in LADbible’s Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey are said to be very different from those in Milne’s books for children.
A group of young women go on a weekend retreat and are eventually forced to face their worst fears; this is suggested by a still of Piglet and Pooh watching a scantily clad Lara (Natasha Tosini) float away in a brightly illuminated pool at night.
This is all supposition, as the producers have not revealed any additional information regarding the story.
