The terrifying new poster for the highly-anticipated horror film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey puts a scary spin on the beloved character.
The first terrifying poster for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is here. The upcoming project from writer and director Rhys Frake-Waterfield will be the first time the classic children’s story gets reimagined as a horror film following its release into the public domain. Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will reimagine the iconic yellow bear and his sidekick, Piglet, as rampaging feral beasts ready for revenge after being abandoned by Christopher Robin. Craig David Dowsett plays Winnie the Pooh, and Chris Cordell stars as Piglet in the slasher-horror film.
The first images from Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey were met with an outpouring of both outrage and excitement online, as loyal fans of AA Milne’s beloved, innocent characters saw them as murderous beasts on the hunt for blood. Frake-Waterfield explained that he did not anticipate that level of interest and buzz around the movie, as it is an independent project that only took 10 days to film. However, it seems impossible to avoid attention at this point, as more intriguing Winnie the Pooh stills and terrifying plot details are revealed, grabbing the attention of fans. With Disney no longer owning the rights to Pooh and Piglet, the iconic characters are now being turned into the stuff of nightmares.
today, Dread Central unveiled the official poster art for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, and it is sure to ruin childhoods. The horrifying image sees Winnie the Pooh clasping a bloody mallet, with a mischievous, terrifying smirk gracing his famous yellow face. Below Pooh, he is joined by his friend Piglet, who stands holding a knife, appearing to finish the job on one of his victims. Check out the official poster for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey below:
Given the unprecedented response to Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey that flooded social media following the release of the film’s first images, post-production has reportedly been expedited. The release of the official poster further speaks to the growing excitement, as it looks like promotional efforts are really starting to kick off. However, a release date has yet to be announced, though it can be expected to hit theaters in either late 2022 or early 2023. Due to the initial mixed reactions to the concept of Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, it will be interesting to see how the film is received by fans and critics alike, as it has polarized both loyal fans of the series and horror fans. The overall vibe of the official poster is ominous and terrifying, and it likely won’t do much to win over those put off by a murderous Winnie the Pooh.
While an avid audience is excitedly awaiting the film to hit theaters, not everyone is on board with Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Those in favor of the horror-retelling of the charming children’s story have lauded Frake-Waterfield’s creativity and imagination in bringing back to life Pooh and Piglet. However, many have been skeptical of the idea, arguing it could result in a disrespectful rendition of one of film and television history’s best stories and characters. Only time will tell if Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey can both live up to the hype it has built and remain respectful to its origins.
