Certainly, filmmaker and producer Rhys Waterfield is in the process of destroying little by little; small our childhood. The director is indeed in the process of specializing in an astonishing genre: the horror film with a twist. from mainstream Disney characters. After Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan, he will hijack another iconic character from Disney animated films.
Rhys Waterfield : a name you will soon have to remember
While he had until then nothing achieved or product, Rhys Waterfield came out of the shadows a few months ago with a totally crazy project. While some iconic Disney characters such as Winnie the Pooh or Peter Pan have just fallen into the public domain (100 years after their creation), this clever little guy had the idea to create it. e to use these characters for the youth to agrave; horrific purposes. He has written, produced and directed; Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey. A horror feature film where Winnie the Pooh and Piglet become serial killers. If the film does not have a release date in France, it has been widely talked about, thanks to; this unique and original concept. A project that is now possible, because Disney no longer has the exclusivity; on these characters that have fallen into the public domain.
Currently, Rhys Waterfield is already working; on a sequel to Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey. This time, taking up the same idea, he attacks another iconic character from Disney studios: Peter Pan. Indeed, the famous lost child was created; in 1902. Today, the work of J.M. Barrie is therefore adaptable without prior authorization. Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare has just started filming.
It won't stop anymore
< p>And Rhys Waterfield is obviously not planning to stop there. The Dread Central site reports that Bambi will also be switching to Rhys Waterfield's mixer. Indeed, the companies ITN Studios and Jagged Edge Productions are currently developing the horror film Bambi : The Reckoning.
This project, which will be a continuation of from Winnie-the-Pooh : Blood and Honey and from Peter Pan : Neverland Nightmare, will therefore be a loose adaptation of the novel Bambi, a Life in the Woods by Austrian Felix Salten. A published classic in 1923, which will therefore fall into the public domain from January 2023.
A project that will put Scott Jeffrey behind the camera, while Rhys Waterfield will serve as producer. Scott Jeffrey notably declared; to Dread Central that:
The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the original story that we all know and love. Inspired by the design used in Netflix's The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious machine. kill who roams in nature. Get ready to see Enraged Bambi; !
A short synopsis which refers to the recent horror film produced by Netflix: The Ritual. It must be said that the feature film by David Bruckner offered a terrifying and aesthetically amazing demon-deer. In any case, we hope that all these horror films adapted from Disney classics will be released in France. We are very curious to see the result of Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey. One thing is certain, with this totally delirious concept, Rhys Waterfield is making a name for himself in the middle of the seventh art.
