‘winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey’ Director Teases Slasher Film Plot: ‘pooh And Piglet Cross On A Rampage’

A.A. Milne’s unique “Winnie the Pooh” memories handiest lapsed into the public area 5 months ago, however the tubby little cubby has already made his foray into slasher movies.

“Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” wrapped in advance this month, and the first stills displaying a demonic Pooh and Piglet approximately to pounce on a scantily-clad younger woman relaxing in a hot tub have already set the internet on hearth.

In an interview with Variety, director Rhys Waterfield, who is in publish-production on 4 other films inclusive of “Firenado” and “Demonic Christmas Tree,” said the reaction to the stills has been “really crazy.”

“Because of all of the press and stuff, we’re simply going to start expediting the edit and getting it via put up manufacturing as speedy as we will,” said Waterfield. “But additionally, ensuring it’s nevertheless precise. It’s gonna be a excessive priority.”

According to Waterfield, who additionally wrote and co-produced the movie, “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey” will see Pooh and Piglet as “the principle villains…going on a rampage” after being deserted through a university-sure Christopher Robin. “Christopher Robin is pulled far from them, and he’s not [given] them meals, it’s made Pooh and Piglet’s existence pretty hard.”

“Because they’ve needed to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral,” Waterfield persisted. “So they’ve long gone lower back to their animal roots. They’re now not tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who need to move around and attempt to discover prey.”

The film become shot in 10 days in England, no longer far from Ashdown Forest, the foundation for Milne’s imaginary Hundred Acre Wood within the “Winnie the Pooh” memories. Although Waterfield declined to show the budget for the slasher flick, he stated audiences “shouldn’t expect this to be a Hollywood-degree production.” Jagged Edge Productions, which Waterfield runs with co-producer Scott Jeffrey, made the movie, and ITN Studios have already signed directly to distribute it (a launch date is TBD).

Given the idea, the largest mission, Waterfield said, become balancing the line among horror and comedy. “When you try and do a film like this, and it’s a certainly wacky idea, it’s very smooth to head down a direction where not anything is scary and it’s simply truly ridiculous and virtually, like, stupid. And we desired to go among the 2.”

As an example, Waterfield explained the set-up in the back of the nonetheless (above) of a girl enjoyable in a jacuzzi with Pooh and Piglet ominously standing nearby. “She’s having a great time and then Pooh and Piglet appear in the back of her, chloroform her, take her out of the jacuzzi after which kind of drive a vehicle over her head,” Waterfield said. “It’s frightening but there’s also funny bits because there’s shots of Winnie the Pooh in a vehicle and seeing him together with his little ears in the back of the wheel and prefer slowly going over there [to kill her.]”

The simplest fear, especially with all of the new-observed exposure, is whether or not Disney can have something to say approximately “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.” Although Milne’s earliest stories are actually out of copyright, Disney keeps special use in their interpretations of Pooh Bear and his buddies. “We’ve attempted to be extraordinarily cautious,” stated Waterfield. “We knew there has been this line among that, and we knew what their copyright turned into and what they’ve performed. So we did as a lot as we should to make certain [the movie] become most effective based on the 1926 version of it.”

Which is why Waterfield’s Pooh Bear has swapped the little crimson t-blouse for a lumberjack fit and Piglet is clad in black. It’s also why other characters still in copyright, which include Tigger, will no longer appear — even though there may be a scene offering Eeyore’s tombstone, the miserable donkey having been eaten by using a ravenous Pooh and Piglet.

“No one goes to mistake this [for Disney],” Waterfield stated. “When you spot the duvet for this and also you see the trailers and the stills and all that, there’s no way all and sundry goes to assume that is a infant’s version of it.”
