Winnie-the-Pooh is a beloved anthropomorphic teddy bear that was first conceived by author A. A. Milne and illustrator E. H. Shepard. He has a particular place in many people's hearts.
Despite Milne's 1924 poem being the first to mention Winnie-the-Pooh, it wasn't until 1961 that Disney purchased the licencing rights to the character, launching one of their most lucrative brands to date.
In order to save everyone valuable time when writing about Winnie the Pooh, Disney also eliminated the hyphens from the title.
Once Winnie-the-Pooh by Milne entered the public domain in January 2022, Disney would no longer have sole control over how this "silly old bear" was portrayed in the media.
This was the perfect opportunity for writer and filmmaker Rhys Waterfield to create Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, a live-action slasher movie.
As a producer of movies like The Legend of Jack and Jill, Spider in the Attic, The Curse of Bloody Mary, and Wrath of Van Helsing, Waterfield is well known for his fondness for campy horror-comedies.
Because he wants it to be apparent that this is based on Milne's "Winnie-the-Pooh" from the 1920s and should not be confused with a Disney feature aimed at children, Waterfield expressly brought the hyphens back for the movie's title.
ITN Studios and Jagged Edge Productions are in charge of producing and distributing this film. There will undoubtedly be many questions, so make sure to keep reading to find out everything we currently know about this new movie about childhood nightmares. Oh, no, no.
