Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2 has received a much warmer response than its predecessor, and with plans for a shared “Poohniverse” being put in place, you’d best believe this sequel sets the stage for that in a big way. 

The movie sees the former inhabitants of Hundred Acre Wood go on yet another rampage, this time laying waste to the people of Ashdown. Standing in their way is Christopher Robin, though no one is buying his story about his talking animal childhood friends becoming bloodthirsty beasts! 

Ultimately, Pooh and his pals catch up with Chris and things soon escalate…

Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2‘s Ending/Post-Credits Scene Explained

During the movie’s final act, Pooh and Christopher Robin once again come face-to-face. With Pooh distracted by the gravesite he dug himself out of in his youth (more on that later), Chris buries an axe in his former friend’s head and makes his escape alongside Lexy. 

That appears to be it for Pooh (Tigger and Piglet are killed earlier in the movie), but in a mid-credits scene, we learn that Owl has recovered the bodies of his old friends. 

He vows to bring them back, but it turns out they all have healing factors, setting the stage for them all to rise from the dead. We’re guessing that Eeyore being cannibalised means he was too far gone to return, though a resurrection may well happen down the line. 

The Movie’s Big Twist

This is bound to be divisive, but during the course of Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey 2, we learn that Pooh and his friends were all created by a twisted scientist called Dr. Gallup. He kidnapped children and fused their DNA with that of animals, creating these monstrous hybrids.

Among them was Billy, Christopher Robin’s brother, who was fused with DNA to create Pooh. 

Gallup took his own life after his experiments failed, but they dug themselves out of shallow graves and fled into Hundred Acre Wood. The reason Pooh tracked Chris down as a child is because of their familial connection, something which fully seems to come back to the monster during the final battle. 

What About The Poohniverse?

We recently learned of plans for a shared world revolving around these and other characters no longer owned solely by Disney and, during the credits, we see artwork depicting the likes of Peter Pan, Pinnochio, and Bambi.

They too were seemingly Gallups’ experiments and a crossover, titled Poohniverse: Monsters Assemble, is expected to arrive in theaters next year.

Before that, standalone projects are on the way which include Bambi: The ReckoningPeter Pan’s Neverland Nightmare, and Pinocchio Unstrung. All of these are part of “The Twisted Childhood Universe.”
