I didn’t realize that Winnie the Pooh fell into the public domain. As such, anyone with a story could publish something, and sure enough, here we are. Thanks to writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey takes A.A. Milne’s classic characters and makes them feral. Pooh Bear and Piglet are on a rampage, seemingly slaughtering anyone in their path. Will anyone survive? We’ll have to see. No date is given for a release.
Also, this opens up new doors. I can’t wait for Charlotte’s Web: Wilbur’s Requiem (a title I just came up with), where Charlotte’s other children return to Zuckerman’s Farm to avenge their mother under the belief that Wilbur forced her to write for him. Can the Cavatica sisters (Joy, Aranea and Nellie) defend the farm? That’s a story for another universe, I suppose.
