And from the looks of this first teaser trailer, there are more scares on the way in the sequel, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. And it looks like one fun time for the entire family this October.
The full-length trailer is the first glimpse we've gotten of Sony's sequel, which went through several delays before finally heading into production earlier this year. I don't want anyone to think I'm not hyped for a movie about children doing battle with homicidal gummy bears, murderous ventriloquist dummies, and other horrors dreamt up by a children's author in the mid-1990's.More news: Kevin Anderson beats Roger Federer in Wimbledon quarter-finals
It hasn't been confirmed whether Black will return for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, though it was announced at CinemaCon that he would reprise his role as Slappy. The tweet read, "As you can see, I'm running the show now".
Most noticeably missing from the trailer is Black's Stine character, unless you count the fact that Black also voices Slappy.More news: Wimbledon: Kei Nishikori predicts 'war' with Novak Djokovic in quarter-final
A new trio of kids (played by Madison Iseman, Caleel Harris, and Jeremy Ray Taylor) discover an abandoned house where one of R.L. Stine's books sits gathering dust in a mysterious chest. When they open it, Slappy is set free, and he brings all of the elements of Halloween to life. Sandel directs from a script by Rod Lieber. But for now, the Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween cast is rounded out by Ben O'Brien, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Chris Parnell and Ken Jeong. Let us know your thoughts by dropping a comment below!
