The upcoming film, reportedly titled Bambi: The Reckoning, will begin production in January, and has no current plot details as of now, although if Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey is anything to go by, then it will be another shocking, horror-based take on the classic Disney animated film.

The upcoming movie is set to be directed by Scott Jeffrey, who will be joined by producer Rhys Frake-Waterfield, who also worked on Blood and Honey.

While not too much is known about the upcoming film, Jeffrey did reveal a bit about what to expect from the film. In a statement, Jeffrey said that the film will be a “dark retelling of the 1928 story,” and draw inspiration from Netflix’s film The Ritual.

“The film will be an incredibly dark retelling of the 1928 story we all know and love,” said Jeffrey. “Finding inspiration from the design used in Netflix’s The Ritual, Bambi will be a vicious killing machine that lurks in the wilderness. Prepare for Bambi on rabies!”

Similar to Blood and Honey, Bambi: The Reckoning will only come about thanks to the Bambi character falling back into the public domain. Thanks to the ability to now make other stories about the character, ITN and Jagged Edge are moving fast to bring a scarier take of the beloved character to the screens.
