When Winnie the Pooh freaks out, it gives a new horror movie
The Forest of Blue Dreams turns into a nightmare in this new horror film that comes to torment our childhood memories.
Horror is a film genre that lends itself particularly well to the reinterpretation of rather childish licenses. A twist here, a twist there, and we quickly find ourselves with a sinister and terrifying version of mascots from our childhood. After the announcement a few weeks ago of a horrifying new version ofArthur and the Invisiblesit’s the turn of a very cute character from Disney to undergo a terrible facelift.
Winnie the Pooh and his friends will soon haunt our nights with the arrival of Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Goodbye sweet and quiet life in the forest, this time the little animals that we know well come back as serial killers thirsty for blood (and honey). But how can such a film be produced when the character of Winnie is as much associated with the image of Disney ?
When the public domain steps in
Originally, Winnie the Pooh is a work of children’s literature that was published in 1926 by Alan Alexander Milne. Until now, Disney was the only company with exclusive rights to use this character. However, the book has entered the public domain at the beginning of 2022, opening the doors to an infinity of rewrites and adaptations.
It didn’t take long for someone to seize the opportunity and produce a derivative work from the original. This is the London studio Jagged Edge Productions who is embarking on this preposterous adventure. This one has already got his hands on the horror film adaptation of children’s tales and will continue its momentum with this new project which promises to spoil the childhood memories of more than one.
As of now, no information has been shared as to the story of the film or even a possible release date. However, images have already been shared on the internet to arouse curiosity and launch the hype around this project which will probably satisfy fans of horror nanars. One thing is certain: Winnie and Piglet have changed a lot and have visibly been marked by time…
