The Horror Villain is Back

Everyone’s favorite pants-less childhood hero is hitting the big screen once again. While in author A.A. Milne’s 1920s-era stories, Winnie-the-Pooh was sweet and caring, his personality has morphed to be on the bloodthirsty side in director Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s horror film adaptations. Moreover, the popular villain is coming back for a third stroke of vengeance.

Third Time’s The Charm

According to Variety, Jagged Edge Productions led by producer Scott Chambers, alongside Frake-Waterfield, will take viewers on the harrowing third journey. Moreover, Variety reports that the film incorporates a larger budget as well as twisted versions of timeless Milne characters like “Rabbit,” “the Heffalumps,” and “the Woozles.”

Recently, at the end of March, the sequel did a short theatrical run, which demonstrated that the trilogy is improving with each new installation. Moreover, critics are singing the second film’s praises, such as Paul Le who reviewed the film for Bloody Disgusting. According to the reviewer, it boasts more realistic character designs and set-pieces, as well as a nail-biting chainsaw scene.

The New Monsterverse

For those with an insatiable desire to watch once beloved characters become creepy as all hell, they can look forward to news that other Disney movies will get a disturbing makeover as well, including: Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Bambi, and Sleeping Beauty. In addition, expect an ensemble film set to debut in 2025: Poohniverse: Monsters Assemble.

This new monsterverse does beg the question of what other childhood classics will be turned into terrifying films, such as transforming Charlotte’s Web’s titular spider into a bloodthirsty creature who entraps victims in her web. 

On second thought, she did do exactly that in E.B. White’s classic novel, so it probably wouldn’t be controversial enough to capture on film. Never mind.

Watch the original Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, now streaming on Peacock and Roku.
