Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is an upcoming slasher horror film directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield based on A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories. The film started production after Winnie The Pooh became public domain material in January 2022. Several stills from the film were released that May, sparking interest online after media coverage and discussions about the movie trended.


On January 1st, 2022, A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories entered the public domain.[1] On May 24th, 2022, Dread Central[2] reported on the film, sharing the IMDB[3] page, which describes the film: "It follows Pooh and Piglet as they go on a rampage after Christopher Robin abandons them." The tagline for the movie is, "A horror retelling of the famous legend of Winnie the Poo." Several stills from the movie were made available that day (examples shown below).

On May 26th, Variety[4] published an interview with the film's director, Rhys Frake-Waterfield. The article claims that Blood and Honey wrapped production that month and the director said he's "expediting the edit and getting it through post production" as fast as possible due to the increase in press attention. He said the plot of the film sees Piglet and Pooh seek out revenge on Christopher Robin after he abandoned them, adding, "They’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame."

The movie gained widespread media attention after it was announced, including articles from IGN,[5] NME,[6] Independent[7] and Bloody Disgusting[8] in late May 2022. It also inspired mixed reactions from people, some excited for the film and others confused as to why Winnie the Pooh needs a horror adaptation. For example, on May 25th, Twitter[9] user @wholelottatr3y posted a meme about the movie, gaining over 700 likes in a day (shown below, left). On the same day, Twitter[10] user @Crimson_Mayhem_ showed excitement for the movie, gaining over 31,000 likes in a day (shown below, right).

The cast of the film also received attention online, particularly Natasha Tosini. We Got This Covered[11] wrote an article on this topic that listed Craig David Dowsett as Winnie the Pooh, Chris Cordell as Piglet, Amber Doig-Thorne as Alice, Maria Taylor as Maria, Danielle Ronald as Zoe, May Kelly as Tina, Natasha Tosini as Lara and Paula Coiz as Mary. HITC[12] also wrote a piece on Tosini after images of the film went viral on May 26th, describing her as "a model and actress based in the UK … who has over 65,000 Instagram followers and is also a published FHM model." Tosini shared the article on her Instagram[13] account that same day.

Considering that Mickey Mouse’s copyrights expires in 2024, and with Florida conservatives also threading to revoke Disney’s control on copyright extensions, I bet they’ll make a Mickey Mouse horror flick too.
