Last year, almost the very minute that the beloved children’s character went public domain, the world learned of the emergence of Winne the Pooh as a sadistic killer. Well, he is on the big screen anyway. This happened in Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, a low-budget horror film released with much fanfare in 2023. On a mere $100,000 dollar budget, it grossed $6 million, ensuring a sequel would arrive soon. And now, it’s here. The first trailer for Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2, from director Rhys Frake-Waterfield, has released, and you can watch it right here. The interested can also take note, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 will head to theaters, but only for three days.
Here is Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2’s official synopsis:
Deep within the 100-Acre-Wood, a destructive rage grows as Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Owl, and Tigger find their home and their lives endangered after Christopher Robin revealed their existence. Not wanting to live in the shadows any longer, the group decides to take the fight to the town of Ashdown, home of Christopher Robin, leaving a bloody trail of death and mayhem in their wake. Winnie and his savage friends will show everyone that they are deadlier, stronger and smarter than anyone could ever imagine and get their revenge on Christopher Robin, once and for all.
We must say, the budget looks significantly bigger for the second installment than for the first. Maybe Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 will create a Terrifier 2 situation, with the second one blowing up and just eclipsing the original low-budget entry entirely. Certainly, Pooh Pear started a trend last year. We’ve already seen the Steamboat Willie version of Mickey Mouse also head to the horror genre the second the character went public domain. And we imagine more will follow. Does anyone know when Popeye goes public domain?? Because we know he’d be terrifying.
