‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey’ Sets U.S. Theatrical Release Date
While there have been many excellent horror films released in 2022, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey stands out as one of the forthcoming slashers that have lovers of the genre throughout the world excited. The gruesome reimagining of A.A. Milne’s beloved children’s fable is on the way, and it’s likely that it may be available to stream in 2022. Now, however, we know that there will be a theatrical release of some type for this bloody visit to the Hundred Acre Woods. The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively that Fathom Events will play Blood and Honey in theatres for one day only on February 15, 2023.
Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Release Date
The movie will also open in theatres in the UK, Mexico, and Canada. Distributors Altitude in the United Kingdom, Cinemax in “several hundred” Mexican theatres, and Cineplex in Canada have all purchased rights to screen the movie. This slasher film is set to premiere in theatres in a number of other countries whose names remain unknown.
When the Winnie-the-Pooh intellectual property enters the public domain in January 2022, the bloody-demon offspring of that symbiotic relationship will be known as Blood and Honey. The film, directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield, is a huge hit among horror fans thanks to the portrayal of a humanoid Pooh Bear and Piglet murdering their way through the Hundred Acre Woods when Christopher Robin leaves them. This traumatic experience drove them completely wild.
The trailer for this fairy tale turned horrible nightmare was published over the summer, and it has only stoked the fires of expectation. It’s been hysterically disorienting to watch Disney’s typically endearing characters commit atrocities like drowning a woman in a hot tub, but that’s exactly what draws viewers to this picture.
Once upon a time, we believed that Disney‘s live-action Christopher Robin would be the darkest point in this franchise’s history, but those days are long gone. This version of Winnie-the-Pooh is not the one you remember from your youth. Even while this bear hasn’t lost his taste for honey, it’s his insatiable need for human blood that’s sure to draw crowds to the movies. The fact that the release date in the United States comes exactly one day after Valentine’s Day is hilarious. Witnessing Pooh’s homicidal spree as a couple is the ultimate expression of affection.

And if that weren’t enough to make horror aficionados drool, Frake-Waterfield is also working on a follow-up to Blood and Honey and a dark retelling of the Peter Pan narrative dubbed Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare. While we wait to learn if the film will debut on VOD before its Fathom Events one-day theatrical run on February 15, 2023, we can only imagine the destruction that Pooh would cause.
