Horror and Winnie-The-Pooh Fans, REJOICE!
Rhys Frake-Waterfield and Scott Jeffrey’s first instalment was released just earlier this year in January, with the sequel scheduled to drop next February.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey pulled in $5 million at the global box office, impressive since its budget was considerably less than $100,000. Films with a budget of less than $2,000,000 are considered independent projects, with this cheaper-than-usual horror being as indie as it gets.
Its sequel on the other hand seems to be upping the ante, with the first look images proving where the profit from its predecessor has gone, into improving the visual design of your childhood favourites turned horror icons.

It’s clear how much the visual prosthetics have improved, looking far more believable as a horror-gore version of Tigger. Everything from the teeth to the little furry hairs on the skin, not to mention the bloodied-up mouth and costume.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 could potentially be set to bring some redemption to this new horror movie series. With Tigger being close to entering the public domain, it’s almost time for him to wreak havoc on Christopher Robin.
Lewis Santon stars as the blood-thirsty Tigger in Blood and Honey 2.
Scott Chambers stars as Christopher Robin, Ryan Olivia as Winnie-The-Pooh, Simon Callow as Cavendish, and Peter DeSouza-Feighouney as Young Winnie-The-Pooh, among others expected to be announced.
Olivia’s Pooh is more than expected to be joined by other friends on his hunt against Christopher Robin. Filming is currently underway.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 drops in February 2024.
