‘Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey’ Franchise to Launch Crossover Event ‘Poohniverse’

The makers of Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey 1 & 2 are at work on another twisted take on A.A. Milne’s children’s story.

The prolific low-budget genre labels Jagged Edge Productions and ITN Films have unveiled plans to swing their bloody axe again with Poohniverse: Monsters Assemble, a slasher horror pic set to shoot this year ahead of a 2025 release.

“It will be complete carnage. We are heavily influenced by Freddy Vs Jason and The Avengers. We would love to see a horror movie where the villains group together and are going after their survivors. We have some incredible set pieces in mind and some sequences I think will truly shock people,” Jagged Edge producer Rhys Frake-Waterfield said in a statement.

The original creature slasher Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey movie featured a 6-foot Pooh and his sidekick Piglet going on a murderous rampage through the Hundred Acre Wood after being left to fend for themselves by Christopher Robin, only to go to feral.

That was followed by a sequel, and now, Poohniverse: Monsters Assemble, which Frake-Waterfield will direct and with a higher budget as Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl, Piglet, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Bambi, The Mad Hatter, Peter Pan and Tinkerbell join forces to wreak havoc.

“When you see the stand alone movies you will see the easter eggs hinting toward the crossover. Some of the villains also will not see eye to eye which will allow for some carnage within the group in some epic sequence of monster vs monster,” said fellow Jagged Edge producer Scott Chambers, who will also return to play Christopher Robin in the latest film.

The ensemble cast will also include Megan Plactio as Wendy Darling, Roxanne Mckee as Xana, Lewis Santer as Tigger. Stuart Alson and Nicole Holland will executive produce, while Premiere Entertainment will handle sales on Poohniverse: Monsters Assemble.

Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 will hit theaters starting on March 26, via Fathom Events.
