Tigger is ready to join Pooh and friends for a bloodbath in the upcoming sequel, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2.
T-I-double-Guh-Er is about to tear you to S-H-R-E-D-S, as the first images of Tigger in the upcoming sequel, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2, have bounced to the internet…and this is one bloodthirsty feline!
While Tigger was missing from the first Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey, these new images (courtesy of IGN) promise that his debut in the series will be a nasty one. As producer Scott Jeffrey put it, “Tigger is incredibly violent. He loves to torture his victims before killing them.”
As for what fans of Blood and Honey can expect from the sequel – which will arrive sometime early next year – director Rhys Frake-Waterfield recently told The Hollywood Reporter, Blood and Honey 2 will be “Bigger and Badder. The sequel will feature new creature designs, a new cast, and a high death count. However, this time Pooh and friends will be leaving the 100 Acre Wood to take their fight to the quiet community of Ashdown!”
Not only has Tigger joined Winnie-the-Pooh and the rest of the Hundred Acre Wood gang – chiefly Piglet, who teamed up to cause a lot of chaos in the first outing – but the budget for Blood and Honey 2 has been upped from the first, which cost just $100,000. The final budget hasn’t been unveiled but one can see the filmmakers doing a lot with even just another $10,000.
While the original movie initially felt like a joke with the premise of childhood favorites going on a spree, that a sequel even got greenlit – and why wouldn’t it, considering it grossed over $5 million on such a shoestring? – shows the commitment of the filmmakers. Hey, if it’s still a gag at least they’re seeing it through…Blood and Honey of course was able to get made due to A.A. Milne’s characters going into the public domain, thus popularizing a mini trend with beloved intellectual property being turned into horror leads.
