Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey director wants to make a Teletubbies horror film

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey director wants to make a Teletubbies horror film

The director of the Winnie-the-Pooh horror film says that he'd love to make a Teletubbies horror movie if copyright wasn't an issue.

The Winnie-the-Pooh horror movie is finally upon us, and its director already has big ideas for permanently ruining other beloved childhood franchises.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who was expecting Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey to be awful, but many viewers have actually been pleasantly surprised by it. The film, which sees Pooh and the gang go feral after being abandoned by Christopher Robin, has been described as “absurdly entertaining”, a potential “cult hit”, and so bad that it’s good. It’s unlikely to receive any awards, but it sounds like a genuinely fun time. For those willing to see adorable characters from their childhood go on a murderous rampage, anyway.

Take a look at the trailer for Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey below.

In case you were unaware, director Rhys Frake-Waterfield is already hard at work on a sequel (which many are actually excited about now), as well as a horror adaptation of Peter Pan, which has been dubbed Neverland Nightmare. However, in a new interview with Collider, he revealed that if he had his way, even more childhood favourites would be at risk.

“I've really been excited by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lately because I think the story has a very kind of horrifying undertone anyway because it's these half-human, half-turtles who live in the sewer who have a rat king who they follow, and then they come out of the sewer with weapons,” he laughed. “It all just starts to link together to me. So I'd love to do that. I'd love to have them like down an alleyway cutting people up, feeding them to their rat king on pizza or something. I hope I can get the copyrights to that, but I don't know if I can.”

That’s not all, though - he added: “I want to do Teletubbies, too!”

Of course, both Teletubbies and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are still very much subject to copyright law - the only reason Frake-Waterfield could do what he did with Winnie-the-Pooh was because the characters had entered the public domain. However, if he could somehow get permission to make them, the films would be hilarious.
