Winnie The Pooh and Piglet are abandoned in the 100 Acre Woods by Christopher Robin and go feral. The result is Pooh and Piglet going on a killing spree.

It sucks that Eeyore was murdered.

This is the tip of the 95 year copyright expiration iceberg.

Does something like Pooh in public domain qualify him as being part of culture?

‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey' recasts beloved bear as butcher

Sinister old bear!

Winnie the Pooh has apparently gone to the dark side and is leaving his Disney persona in the dust.


The honey-loving Canadian-born bruin is now starring in an upcoming horror movie called Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. A turnaround from his typical absent-minded antics.

What’s changed is that early Pooh adventures penned by A.A. Milne have entered the public domain after the copyright — previously owned by Disney — has lapsed.


Now, producers have recast the bear as a serial killer who slices and dices his victims for laughs. According to Gizmondo, details on Pooh’s slasher star turn are scarce.

Director Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who also co-wrote and produced the film, says Pooh (Craig David-Dowsett) and Piglet (Chris Cordell) will be “going on a rampage” after being abandoned by a college-bound Christopher Robin.


“Because they’ve had to fend for themselves, they become quite feral,” he told Variety. “They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey.”

The film is being produced by British-based Jagged Edge (The Legend of Jack & Jill and The Curse of Humpty Dumpty).

Waterfield said he tried to be “extremely careful” with his film to avoid hitting a Disney corporate minefield.

But don’t expect the full cast from the Hundred Acre Wood. Pals like Tigger remain covered by copyright and are skipping the new Pooh.

The film has a distributor but no release date.
