We told you last night that this year’s Goosebumps sequel, originally titled Goosebumps: Slappy Halloween, has been changed to Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, a decidedly less fun title that still nevertheless incorporates two of my personal favorite things: Goosebumps and Halloween. Now, we’ve got our first teaser. Sort of.
In this little social media video, Slappy returns to formally announce Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, which may or may not star Jack Black as the voice of Slappy.
For what it’s worth, Black clearly didn’t voice the dummy for this tease…
The cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”), Ken Jeong (Hangover), Chris Parnell (Anchorman), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Ben O’Brien (Manchester by the Sea), Caleel Harris (“Castle Rock”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT) and Peyton Wich (“Stranger Things”).
Plot details are currently unknown, but it’s been rumored to follow three who friends must stop Slappy the dummy from starting the Halloween apocalypse.
Ari Sandel directed the sequel, set to release on Oct. 12, 2018.
