Horrifying images show first look at Tigger in Winnie the Pooh horror film sequel
| Last updated
People said their childhoods were ruined when a horror film about Winnie the Pooh was released.
Blood and Honey delivered on all expectations as it showed the iconic and adorable bear in a very sinister light.
The film was based on the beloved children’s characters by author A.A Milne however they are portrayed very differently.
The bear still had its red and yellow outfit but it had become feral and was seeking revenge on his former owner, Christopher Robin, for abandoning him.
As the young man gathers with friends at a remote house, Pooh and Piglet enact their bloody revenge.
It wasn't long before a sequel was announced and now we've been given our first look at Tigger.
IGN was the first to publish photos of the horrifying reimagining of the character.
In the books, Tigger was an affable tiger that could bounce around on his springy tail.
However, in Blood and Honey 2, he has blood surrounding his mouth as if he's just had a murderous feed.
Producer Scott Jeffrey told IGN that Tigger is 'incredibly violent' in the sequel and 'he loves to torture his victims before killing them'.
But you might be asking why we didn't get to see the character in the first film.
Well, the only reason why the horror film was able to be made in the first place was because Winnie the Pooh's copyright ended in January last year.
Once the iconic bear entered the public domain, he was free to be used by anyone in any capacity.
The same thing has happened with Tigger.
His copyright will end in January 2024 and Blood and Honey 2 is set to premiere just one month later.
Jeffrey explained to IGN that the sequel has a much higher budget than the first after the OG became such a huge success.
Blood and Honey was made on a measly budget of $100,000, which is minuscule when compared to other Hollywood blockbusters.
When pictures of the film went viral on the internet, it was decided the movie would get a theatrical run.
It raked in an impressive $5.2 million at the box office, which has clearly given the team behind the sequel a lot of financial ammunition to up the ante.
Jeffrey said their bigger budget has helped them 'create a shocking, explosive and gore-filled movie'.
"I truly think people will really dig what we are creating," he told the outlet.
