GMB’s Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard shocked by upcoming live action horror Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey

Kate Garraway was left visibly horrified after hearing details about new slasher film ‘Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey’

Kate Garraway and co-host Ben Shephard were left horrified after learning about a chilling new slasher film.

The presenters of ITV’s Good Morning Britain were joined by entertainment expert Richard Arnold for a discussion about ‘Winnie-The-Pooh: Blood and Honey’.

The official trailer for the horror film, which is set to be released this year, was made public earlier this week.

Richard introduced the segment, titled ‘Horror in 100 Acre Woods’, while joking about Pooh and Piglet becoming mass murderers.

The trailer was not shown on the ITV breakfast show, as children may be watching.

Kate said: “What? Do we need Winnie-The-Pooh being evil?”

Ben questioned Richard about the appearance of the animals, as he seemed cautiously interested in the film.

The entertainment expert responded: “If you can imagine Piglet with tusks, and Eeyore not himself.”

“It’s a very, very grim watch,” Richard added.

Many people have taken to Twitter to voice concerns about the children’s cartoon being turned into a horror.

One person wrote: “I woke up to a trailer of a Winnie the Pooh horror film…let me be the one to say WE DIDN’T/DON’T NEED THIS”

Another said: “Who in their right mind decided to make Winnie the Pooh into a horror film?? That’s ruined my day “

A third added: “No way!!!! winnie the pooh is one of my favourite books why ruin it by making it a horror film”

The horror film was created by director Rhys Waterfield, after A A Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh characters entered the public domain in January.

The live action film sees Christopher Robin abandon his childhood friends Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore, who then go on a rampage as they begin to starve in the woods.

The cast includes Craig David Dowsett as Pooh, Chris Cordell as Piglet and Nikolai Leon as Christopher Robin.

The film has an R (restricted) rating, meaning that under 17’s have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
