Winnie The Pooh: Blood And Honey - Is Piglet Really Dead?

The viral sensation "Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey" hit theaters through Fathom Events in early 2023 and swiftly cleaned house at the box office, setting the stage for an inevitable sequel and more carnage to come. In the film, after dispelling Christopher Robin for abandoning them as he grew up, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet go on a killing spree as a group of women arrive for a getaway vacation near Pooh's hundred acre woods.

After the slaughter, not many are left standing except for the silly-old-bear who's sure to have just begun quelling his appetite for destruction. One of the women at the cabin, Alice (Amber Doig-Thorne), is able to get the upper hand on Piglet at one point, and she seemingly destroys him with a sledgehammer. Fans are wondering if they can count on seeing Pooh's swine sidekick in the sequel.

In an interview with the film's director Rhys Frake-Waterfield at Collider, he assured fans, "Piglet's not dead ... You can't kill Piglet. Him and Pooh are kind of the original two. And then in the sequel [I'm] going to add a few more characters in with them. So they're gonna go around and they'll be as a group killing people."

The director explains what Piglet really is since he's immortal

The popular theory is that Tigger will be joining the murder crew in "Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey 2." Tigger will fall into the public domain in 2024, when the sequel is aiming to be released, meaning anyone can use the character in media as long as it doesn't resemble a version of the character that's owned by someone, a la the Disney version of the springy animal.

Speaking of animals, since Piglet and Pooh can't seem to die, the filmmaker behind the mayhem, Rhys Frake-Waterfield, explained what exactly they are in his film series. He said what they were in the film, "I hate this word and I might not be able to say it — anthropomorphic. Basically hybrids." He said he wanted to give them hands so they could hold weapons.

Beyond that, they have blood and guts inside them like animals, but they also have fluff stuffing inside them because they are, at the end of the day, stuffed animals come to life. He said, "There's actually a moment in the film ... after [Pooh's] been hit by the car and he's slumped over it ... and then [Pooh] coughs ... if you look carefully, fluff's coming out." It sounds like fans haven't seen the last of bloodthirsty Pooh, and the director has confirmed Piglet is still alive. The duo look to get up to more hellish shenanigans in 2024.
