Winnie the Pooh has become public domain, and now he’s in a horror film

This is not a drill: Winnie the Pooh has officially embraced his dark side as he trades his honey dipper for a bloody mallet in the new Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey film poster.

On July 14, Dread Central dropped the first poster of the upcoming horror film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, which is pretty gruesome and far from the loving and adorable bear that we know from our childhood.

The new poster sees Pooh holding a mallet drenched with blood, while his close pal Piglet is in the forest, standing over his victim with a knife in his hand. What made this poster more terrifying is the accompanying tag line across the poster that reads, “This ain’t no bedtime story.”

The new Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey poster earned mixed reactions from Twitter users.

Horror fans expressed their excitement about the upcoming slasher horror movie.

Other users, on the other hand, aren’t too thrilled to see the honey-loving bear turned and his buddy transformed into a deadly duo that will cause mayhem.

This isn’t the first time that the film received reactions from the public. Earlier this year, stills from the film were released on the internet. One image showed Pooh and Piglet sneaking on a woman who’s relaxing in a jacuzzi, while another saw the bear stepping on a lady in the middle of the street with what seemed to be a sledgehammer in his hand.

In case you missed it: in January 2022, the original Winnie the Pooh stories by Milne, which were published in 1926, entered the public domain, making the re-imagined version of Pooh possible.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is a reimagined version of the classic children’s tale created by English author A.A. Milne. The film follows the story of Pooh and Piglet as they go on a murderous after being abandoned by Christopher Robin, who was bound to college.

The film will star Craig David Dowsett as the titular character, Nikolai Leon as Christopher Robin, and Chris Cordell as Piglet.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is directed and written by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, with Stuart Alson, Nicole Holland, Scott Jeffrey, and Frake-Waterfield producing the film.

As of writing, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey have yet to set a release date.
