The trailer begins with Christopher Robin, now a young adult who left Pooh and Piglet behind for college, returning to Hundred Acre Wood with his new girlfriend.
As the duo set out to look for Pooh and Piglet, Christopher’s girlfriend insists on leaving after getting spooked by the creepy settings.
‘I really need to find out what’s happened to them, okay?’ he insists.
Eventually, they come across Pooh, who twists Christopher’s girlfriend’s neck. Screams are heard before the scene changes to a quaint cottage, where a group of young women are now vacationing.

The film was directed by Rhys Waterfield and stars Nikolai Leon as Christopher Robin.
Waterfield previously revealed to Variety that the flick was filmed near the actual forest which inspired Hundred Acre Wood, Ashdown Forest in England. Shooting took place over the span of 10 days.

A.A. Milne’s original Winnie The Pooh stories came into the public domain earlier this year after its copyright expired in January, but care was taken to avoid getting into any trouble with Disney, which still has copyright over its own version of the bear, as well as all films and images associated with them, according to Variety.
In order to achieve this, filmmakers traded the red shirt Pooh wears in the Disney films for a lumberjack outfit. They also did not include various characters still under copyright, such as Tigger.
‘Christopher Robin is pulled away from them, and he’s not [given] them food, it’s made Pooh and Piglet’s life quite difficult,’ Waterfield told Variety of the film’s plot.

‘Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral,’ he said. ‘So they’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey.’
Twitter had a thing or two to say about the trailer following it’s release.
‘Me going to ruin my childhood by seeing ‘Winnie the Pooh: Blood and honey”, tweeted one Twitter user.
‘Winnie the Pooh will forever haunt children’s nightmares. My god,’ tweeted another.
The film currently has no release date though Waterfield told Variety he was attempting to finish the movie as fast as possible to capitalize on the momentum.
‘Because of all the press and stuff, we’re just going to start expediting the edit and getting it through post production as fast as we can,’ he said. ‘But also, making sure it’s still good. It’s gonna be a high priority.’
