‘Winnie the Pooh’ Has a New Movie And It Is Nothing You Have Ever Seen From Him, Piglet, nor Christopher Robin

They say if you live long enough, you see everything. And once January 1, 2022 hit and Winnie the Pooh became part of public domain, it almost guaranteed that everything was going to be redefined.

Which brings us to the new Winnie the Pooh slasher film that just finished production. Read that again, a Winnie the Pooh slasher film.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will feature Pooh and Piglet as “the main villains going on a rampage,” according to director Rhys Waterfield.

The story line goes that Pooh and Piglet are abandoned by Christopher Robin, who’s headed off to college. So Toy Story 3, but without a support system for the abandon toys?

“Christopher Robin is pulled away from them, and he’s not [given] them food, it’s made Pooh and Piglet’s life quite difficult,” Waterfield continued in a recent interview with Variety. “Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral, So they’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey.”

Feral Winnie the Pooh. This is not a joke.

The film was shot in 10 days in England, not far from Ashdown Forest, the inspiration for A.A. Milne’s imaginary Hundred Acre Wood in the “Winnie the Pooh” stories.

Waterfield declined to reveal the budget for the film. But he did say audiences “shouldn’t be expecting this to be a Hollywood-level production.”

Or a Hollywood-level concept for that matter.

“When you try and do a film like this, and it’s a really wacky concept, it’s very easy to go down a route where nothing is scary and it’s just really ridiculous and really, like, stupid,” Waterfield said. “And we wanted to go between the two.”

Jagged Edge Productions, which Waterfield runs with co-producer Scott Jeffrey, made the film. ITN Studios will distribute it.

No release date has been announced.
