Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey 2 is officially happening! The unexpected success of the micro-budget slasher shocked everyone. This formula of transforming childhood characters into terrifying icons is overused. But it hits the spot every single time. Building on the hype of the first installment, the second chapter is coming to grace the screens this year. Furthermore, new pictures have revealed Pooh’s brand-new design and the return of a famous character. Without any further delay, let’s get right into it!
New Pictures of Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey 2
The wait is over! The latest visuals have revealed that the upcoming sequel will reunite the two traumatized close friends, Pooh and Christopher Robin. The images show Pooh (Ryan Oliva) and his ex-friend-turned-enemy, Christopher Robin (Scott Chambers).
Given that the budget for the sequel is higher than the first one, the makers have indeed given their all to make Pooh even scarier. Another key takeaway from these pictures is that the movie will entail much more gore.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the film’s writer and director, Rhys Frake-Waterfield, revealed that the second part is all set to give way to new creative ideas, an abyssal death count, and a new cast.
These recent pictures reflect that the movie will be much better than its predecessor in terms of visuals. Moreover, the fans are in for a surprise! The bloody adventures will soon leave the 100-acre wood. Their activities will now continue in the quiet community of Ashdown. A change of scenery will spike their murderous tendencies.
Homicidal and Honey-Loving Bear Is Back With a Thud
Other issued pictures teased the fans with the new visuals of Pooh. His personality has gotten ten times more dark and gritty.
Another image introduced Piglet (who was also a part of the franchise in the first season). We saw him crouching behind another horrifying feathered creature, which happened to be an owl.
A close-up shot of Chambers as Christopher Robin showed him teary-eyed. But now the question arises: why was he crying? Was it the unbearable pain of seeing his childhood pals turn into monsters? Or was it the guilt? We will find out once the movie premieres.
What is the Film About?
The sequel will primarily focus on Pooh as he chases down Christopher Robin. The Bear is still out for blood, trying to avenge the abandonment. After all, the boy’s decision prompted the animals to feed on Eeyore and transform into monsters.
It seems like Pooh Bear will use a new weapon on his victims. As seen in the picture, the titular character was armed with a chainsaw. Judging from this, one can easily assume how much gore the second part will entail.
It will be a blood-soaked follow-up movie that sticks to the original plot. Furthermore, we aim for a lot of fun with characters like Owl and Tigger in the picture!
Pooh Bear and his gang will terrorize the new town of Ashdown. The details of the plot are still pretty much concealed. So, the fans will have to wait until February 2024 for things to unfold completely.
Unraveling the Cast Members
Scott Chambers will play the character of Christopher Robin. In case you have forgotten, Robin was the owner and a reliable friend of Winnie the Pooh and the entirety of Hundred Acre Wood Creatures. Until one day when he decided to walk away!
Ryan Oliva will star as the murderous Winnie the Pooh. Joining him as a young Winnie is Peter DeSouza-Feighoney (The Pope’s Exorcist). Despite what we saw in the first movie, Piglet will return with Eddy McKenzie portraying the character.
Lewis Santer will feature as the fan-favorite Tigger. The fans already have issues with the color of the character. However, for a long time, Tigger has been portrayed as a black-and-white creature with a tinge of yellow.
Marcus Massey will bring back the original character of Owl, who is believed to be the wisest of the bunch. As Owl has made it to the final list of characters, finding out how he’ll affect the overall storyline will be interesting.
The most shocking actor to be a part of the sequel’s cast is Simon Callow (Shakespeare in Love) as Cavendish. Cavendish is a troubled character. He has a history of alcoholism, regret, and questioning life decisions. His character is bound to be integral to the main plot of the horror sequel.
Well, that was everything you needed to know about Winnie the Pooh Blood and Honey 2. We will update this site immediately if more information surfaces.
