The sweet story about Frog and Toad laughing at Toad Hall, riding around hilariously in a car, and generally being ridiculous must have been thrown right out the window into the bog.

RG Entertainment (powered by WETA) plan on delivering what looks like the tale of when Toad had terminal cancer and decided to test the people around him who didn’t appreciate life with elaborate traps.

The poster gives off a truly creepy vibe. If the new take on the film is this dark, will everybody still love Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride?

As a fun game, let’s take a look at the beginning of the animated The Wind in the Willows from 1987 and see if the feel of it matches up with what’s displayed in that poster:

Bah. The wealthy amphibians and their wanton flaunting of wealth. It’s sickening.

You can also check out the actual text-heavy, creepy Toad-heavy teaser for the forthcoming film at their official website.
