Winnie the Pooh became public domain earlier this year, which means no one holds rights to say what can and cannot be used using these characters. But, dang.
The first trailer for Rhys Frake-Waterfield's film, “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey,” is out and Pooh and Piglet turned all kinds of crazy because Christopher Robin abandoned them. The merry mates slash and burn their way through several victims in the film. Getting stuck in a hunny jar is the least of ANYONE'S worries in this one. I didn't hear them talk in the trailer but I would love it if they kept their cartoon voices, so at least it would be tongue-in-cheek. There doesn't seem to be anything tongue-in-cheek. More like tongue-hacked-off-by-a-blade. There’s no release date yet.
If you care to, there's a trailer. It is age-restricted so I cannot embed it. Check it out if you must. It's on YouTube. As Pooh would say, "Oh bother."
