Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Movie Cast, Release date, Villain, Plot

Only five months have passed since A.A. Milne's original "Winnie the Pooh" tales entered the public domain, yet the chubby little cubby has already entered the world of slasher movies.

The film "Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey" was completed earlier this month, and the first stills from the movie, which depict a demonic Piglet and Pooh poised to attack a young woman who is unclothed and resting in a hot tub, have already ignited the internet.

Director Rhys Waterfield described the reaction to the stills as "absolutely wild" in an interview with Variety. Waterfield is now wrapping up post-production on four other movies, including "Firenado" and "Demonic Christmas Tree."

We're basically going to start accelerating the edit and getting it through post-production as quickly as we can, said Waterfield, due to all the publicity and other things. And checking to see whether it's still good. It will be given top consideration.

According to Waterfield, who also scripted and co-produced the film, Pooh and Piglet will be the main enemies on a rampage in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. This is because they were abandoned by a college-bound Christopher Robin. Pooh and Piglet's lives have become very tough as a result of Christopher Robin being yanked away from them and not providing them with food.

They've effectively turned savage because they've had to fend for themselves so much, said Waterfield. In a sense, they have gone back to being animals. They are no longer domesticated; instead, they resemble savage bear and pig that roams about looking for victims.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Film Release Date

The movie was filmed in England over the course of ten days, not far from Ashdown Forest, which served as Milne's model for his fictional Hundred Acre Wood in his "Winnie the Pooh" tales. Waterfield refused to specify how much the horror movie cost, but he did warn spectators not to "expect this to be a Hollywood-level production." Jagged Edge Productions was the film's producer. ITN Studios has already committed to releasing the film, which was made by Jagged Edge Productions, which Waterfield co-owns with co-producer Scott Jeffrey. The exact date of release is still to be determined.

The hardest issue, according to Waterfield, was striking a balance between comedy and terror given the subject. When you attempt to create an image like this, it's really easy to go down a path where nothing is frightening and it's just incredibly ludicrous and just, like, dumb. It's also a pretty bizarre idea. Between the two is where we wanted to go.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Plot

Waterfield used the scene behind the still (above) of a female unwinding in a jacuzzi with Pooh and Piglet menacingly lurking close as an illustration. She is enjoying herself when Pooh and Piglet suddenly appear behind her, chloroform her, remove her from the jacuzzi, and then essentially drive a vehicle over her head, according to Waterfield. It's frightening, but there are also humorous parts because there are pictures of Winnie the Pooh driving a car and having his tiny ears on the wheel as he slowly approaches the target to murder her.

The main uncertainty is whether Disney will have anything to say about "Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey," especially with all the recent press. Disney has the only right to use its adaptations of Pooh Bear and his companions, even though the first Milne stories are no longer protected by copyright. Waterfield stated that extreme caution has been sought. We were aware of what they had done as well as the difference between that and their copyright. Therefore, we made every effort to ensure that [the movie] was solely based on the 1926 version of it.

Because of this, Piglet is wearing a black outfit and Waterfield's Pooh Bear is sporting a lumberjack suit instead of the little red t-shirt. It's also the reason why other characters that are still protected by copyright, like Tigger, won't make an appearance. However, there is a scene with Eeyore's gravestone, the poor donkey having been eaten by a hungry Pooh and Piglet.

Nobody will mistake this for Disney, according to Waterfield. When you see the cover for this and you see the teasers and the stills and all that, there's no way anyone is going to assume this is a kid's version of it.
