Imagine a universe, like the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), for example, in which there are only classic children’s characters, like Winnie the Pooh, Bambi and Peter Pan. The only detail is: these characters are terrible and bloodthirsty killers. This could happen very soon, as after the horror movie Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honeythe classics Bambi and Peter Pan should also win productions of the genre.
- Winnie the Pooh: new horror movie of the character is confirmed
Scheduled to debut on February 15th of this year, blood and honey went viral even before it was officially released, as it turned the lovable Winnie the Pooh, created by Alan Alexander Milne in 1921, into a killing machine. Now, the creator of the horror work, Rhys Frake-Waterfield, has revealed that he intends to do the same with more children’s characters, creating a universe of deadly (once cute) creatures.
To the The Hollywood Reporter, Waterfield said he is already producing a horror film about Peter Pan, a character created by James Matthew Barrie, in 1902, in which Tinker Bell is obese and is trying to kick his drug addiction. Bambi also did not escape the director’s ideas and will win a long call Bambi: The Reckoningwhich will show the little animal on a murderous and revengeful journey.
New Pooh movie confirmed
The filmmaker is so excited, in fact, that he has already announced a sequel to Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. In a post on Twitter, a poster for the new film was released with the following sentence: “Friends will gather… to take revenge”. In addition, the official slogan of the work was also revealed: “More blood. More honey”.

“The idea is that we’re trying to imagine that they’re all in the same world, so we can have crossovers. People have been texting me saying they want to see Bambi versus Pooh,” said the artist about the encounter between the reimagined child characters.

He continued: “There are many, many, many other ideas that don’t depend on Disney, a lot of old fairy tales and urban legends, concepts that are synonymous with our youth, and those are the ones I want to turn into a crazy alternative reality.”
Remembering that these productions with classic children’s characters only became possible because there are no more copyright rules on them. That is, anyone can use the figures to create any type of work.
