Peter Pan is getting his own horror movie called Neverland Nightmare

Peter Pan is getting his own horror movie called Neverland Nightmare

Another one of our beloved kids' films is being turned into a horror

If the news that Winnie the Pooh is being turned into a horror film wasn't disturbing enough, it's now been revealed that beloved kids' film Peter Pan is getting an overhaul, too.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Rhys Frake-Waterfield has decided not only take on a Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey sequel, but he's also planning Peter Pan: Neverland Nightmare as well.

Created by J.M. Barrie way back in 1902, the original Disney movie was released in 1953, and tells the story of a young boy who can fly.

Living in Neverland with the Lost Boys, fairies, pirates, and mermaids, Peter can never grow up and spends his days with best friend and sidekick Tinker Bell.

When Peter meets Wendy and her brothers - John and Michael - the four head off to Neverland where they take on evil pirate Captain Hook - Peter's long time nemesis.

That's the kids' version, but the upcoming horror will certainly not be for children. It's unclear what the plot of the film will be, or even when production will begin, but in the meantime, Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is set to drop in cinemas on 15 February, followed by a release in the UK at a later date.

In an interview with Variety, Frake-Waterfield said Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey will see Pooh and Piglet as 'the main villains…going on a rampage' after being abandoned by a college-bound Christopher Robin.

“Christopher Robin is pulled away from them, and he’s not [given] them food, it’s made Pooh and Piglet’s life quite difficult," he explained.

“Because they’ve had to fend for themselves so much, they’ve essentially become feral.

“So they’ve gone back to their animal roots. They’re no longer tame: they’re like a vicious bear and pig who want to go around and try and find prey."

The cast includes Craig David Dowsett who plays Winnie the Pooh and Chris Cordell who plays Piglet. The dynamic duo are accompanied by Amber Doig-Thorne, Danielle Scott, Maria Taylor, Danielle Ronald, Natasha Tosini, May Kelly, Paula Coiz, and Natasha Rose Mills.

Speaking to UNILAD earlier this year, Dowsett said the film is not for the 'faint-hearted'.

"Viewers can expect a serious storyline with lots of violence and gore, not for the faint-hearted," he said.

"When I first read the script I knew this was going to be special! It left me stunned, amazed, and excited."

Our childhoods are officially ruined!
