Here’s hoping the Haunted Mask gets more screen time in this one.
The 2015 film Goosebumps was an explosion of all the book franchise’s most iconic monsters, a brilliant approach to a feature film adaptation that felt like an adaptation of *all* the books in one fell swoop. So where do we go from here? Well, Goosebumps: Slappy’s Revenge is coming later this year, and we’ve got new plot details this week.
Via Backstage, here’s the plot rundown for the Ari Sandel-directed sequel:
Three friends must stop Slappy the dummy from starting the Halloween apocalypse.
Omega Underground notes that Slappy’s Revenge will feature a new trio of kids, including 17-year-old Sarah, her brother Sonny, and Sonny’s best friend Sam.
Jack Black will again voice Slappy and potentially return as R.L. Stine.
Shooting will begin next month ahead of an October 12, 2018 release.
