Looks like Winnie the Pooh horror movie is about to happen. When beloved characters enter the public domain, strange things can begin to occur. Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, an upcoming horror film about Winnie the Pooh, represents just that.
How can they make a Winnie the Pooh horror movie?
In the upcoming Winnie the Pooh horror film, which is of course not connected to Disney in any way, form or manner, the anthropomorphic yellow teddy bear turns into a bloodthirsty killer. You’re probably wondering how this is even allowed, right?
That’s true, the classic tale became public domain at the start of this year, giving people all over the world license to do whatever they want with Pooh. Winnie the Pooh was not based on a Disney character, as is the case with many other versions. The copyrighted Disney character who is associated with wearing a red shirt is not to be confused with this version of Winnie the Pooh.
On January 1, Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh universe except for Tigger entered the public domain, allowing anybody to work on their “original iterations of Pooh” and include them “into any of your creative work,” according to Jennifer Jenkins, director of Duke University’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain. Considering old Disney property rights are expiring, you may want to delete your Disney+ account and watch all the old Disney characters on cheaper or free platforms.
Would you say no to a serious wartime movie featuring Goofy and Donald Duck? It may happen… Rhys Frake-Waterfield handled Winnie the Pooh horror movie, subtitled Blood and Honey, according to Dread Central, and several early look images offer a dark and twisted vision. Rhys Frake-Waterfield and features Craig David Dowsett as the protagonist of the film, Maria Taylor as Maria, Danielle Ronald as Zoe, May Kelly as Tina, Natasha Tosini as Lara, Amber Doig-Thorne as Alice, Chris Cordell as Piglet are just a few of the talents behind Blood and Honey. It’s uncertain whether Christopher Robin, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo will appear.
There is no further information available about this project, but it appears to be about a killer who wears a Winnie the Pooh mask. Perhaps the creature is a hybrid of a man and a bear. A twisted version of Piglet appears in these first look photos, so prepare for a full-on perversion of the classic story. This one was produced by Jagged Edge Productions and will be released sometime later this year. In the following article, there are countless options you can check out before the release of this movie, Disney Plus: Every movie and show you can watch right now.
Only on the film’s IMDb page does it state simply that it’s a “horror retelling of the famous legend of Winnie the Pooh,” and we’ll be keeping an eye on it.
Disney has been lobbying the U.S. government for years to lengthen the duration of copyrights. In fact, people nicknamed their efforts “Mickey Mouse Protection Act” as a joke. I’m not saying they are funding this project secretly to make a point, but they’ll surely milk the opportunity and tell the U.S. politicians “how this feature film can impact children’s perception about their intellectual properties.”
We can’t wait for the Mickey Mouse detective movie where he hunts for the Blood and Honey killer. Until then, you might want to check new Marvel movies in 2022. Did you know that Netflix is entering the live streaming market?
