Hide your children! This is not the Winnie the Pooh we are used to, but a horror movie where the bear is the killer.
Since 1926, the books about the little bear Winnie the Pooh by A. A Milne have captivated both children and adults around the world. After Disney made its first film adaptation in 1966 (“Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree”), the character became perhaps even more famous and loved.
Almost a hundred years after the first book was published, the film “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” comes out, which makes a slightly different rendition of the pensive bear.
Of course, the film has nothing to do with Disney, but one can of course wonder how this is possible. The books recently became so-called “public domain” (or public property), which means that the brand is in practice not owned by anyone. The figure may be used freely and changed by anyone for any purpose, without the user even stating who is originally behind the work.
There is not much information about the plot in the film, other than that it seems to revolve around a killer who wears a mask depicting Winnie the Pooh. In the pictures (see below) you can also see a pig mask, representing Nasse. IMDB reports that it is a “horror film that retells the famous legend of Winnie the Pooh”, which remains to be seen.
“Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” is directed in any case by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who has never sat in that chair before. In the roles we see Amber Doig-Thorne, Maria Taylor and Danielle Scott.
