Trailer for slasher film based on popular children’s character Winnie the Pooh titled Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. The independent film is directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield who has a large number of producing credits. The iconic characters are adapted from a series of children’s books written by A A Milne and illustrated by E H Shepard.
The film was greenlit after rights for the characters have recently expired and entered the public domain. Before the rights became public, Walt Disney Company were holding the rights to the character until 2021.
The film follows Winnie the Pooh and Piglet as they go on a bloodthirsty rampage to kill Christopher Robin after he abandons them to go to college. The film stars Craig David Dowsett, Chris Cordell, and Nikolai Leon as Winnie the Pooh, Piglet and Christopher Robin respectively.
Talking about the film in an interview, the director said “The slasher will balance the absurdity of the premise with genuine terror as the legendary stuffed animals embark on their rampage.”
