This isn’t the Winnie the Pooh you grew up with.
In an interview with Variety, director Rhys Waterfield teased new
details about a new, twisted take on the beloved character in the
upcoming horror film “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.”
“No one is going to mistake this [for Disney],” Waterfield said. “When you see the cover for this and you see the trailers and the stills and
all that, there’s no way anyone is going to think this is a child’s
version of it.”
The formerly lovable yellow bear and his sidekick, Piglet, will now be
the “main villains … going on a rampage” after Christopher Robin leaves them behind for a college education.
“Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve
essentially become feral,” Waterfield continued. “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.”
A few of the stills Waterfield mentioned dropped on Thursday, including
a shot of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet creeping up behind a bikini-clad
woman in a hot tub.
“She’s having a good time and then Pooh and Piglet appear behind her, chloroform her, take her out of the jacuzzi and then kind of drive a
car over her head,” Waterfield said.
