Since 1stJanuary, 2022, some of the most famous works have become public domain, this is becausethere is a law according to which after 96 years from the creation and publication of a certain work, all copyright rightsdecay, which means that that specific work becomes public domain and everyone can use it to produce new content about it.
Since the beginning of this year, one of the most famous works that has lost copyright rights is Winnie the Pooh(but it is not the only one, for example Bambi also lost copyright rights, and in 2024 it will be up to Mickey Mouse and Tiger) which means that we can all develop a story about the character, but the important thing is that visually it doesn’t look like Disney’s designs, because those are still copyrighted.
Disney is trying to find a solution about it by creating live-action versions of the classic stories hoping that it can get them into the collective imagination, trying to "forget" the stories drawn with also new merchandise dedicated to new products, as in a few years they will all become public domain and Disney will not be able to make as much money as today, as they will no longer be his property.
In all this, the creatives have wasted no time and have immediately exploited Winnie the Pooh creating a new 'universe' that is totally detached from the original, as we talk about Horror.
The Director and Writer of the film will be Rhys Frake-Waterfield, as for the actors instead there are:
Amber Doig-Thorne as Alice,Danielle Scott as Mauled Women,Maria Taylor as Maria,Danielle Ronald as Zoe,Bao Tieu as Caged man,May Kelly as Tina,Chris Cordell as Piglet,Natasha Tosini as Lara, Marcus Massey as James Anderson (News Reporter),Gillian Broderick as Therapist,Richard Harfst as BarnOwner,Natasha RoseMills as Jess, Paula Coiz as Mary,Craig DavidDowsett as Winnie.
Nothing is yet known about the plot of the film, but as soon as there is new information about it I will update you.
Would you like Dead by Daylight to collaborate with this film to bring this horror version of Winnie the Pooh as new killer of the game?
