‘Goosebumps 2’ trailer invites you to a very ‘Haunted Halloween’

11 July 2018

The classic candy turns malevolent in the first trailer for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, the direct sequel to 2015's Goosebumps, in which Jack Black played a comical version of the famed horror author, dealing with the fact that all of his books have come to life in a quiet DE town. And it looks like one fun time for the entire family this October. And we never see Stine in the trailer above, which is odd. Co-stars Dylan Minnette (Prisoners), Ryan Lee (Super 8) and Odeya Rush (The Giver) from the first movie are expected to return.

Most noticeably missing from the trailer is Black's Stine character, unless you count the fact that Black also voices Slappy. When they open it, Slappy is set free, and he brings all of the elements of Halloween to life.

While Jack Back doesn't seem to be reprising the role of R.L. Stine in the new movie, there are a wave of new actors joining the franchise. The film is directed by Ari Sandel on a script from Rob Lieber.

Cast members for the sequel include include Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians), Wendi Mclendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), Chris Parnell (Hot Rod) Madison Iseman, Ben O'Brien, Caleel Harris, Jeremy Ray Taylor (IT), and Jack Black as the voice of Slappy.

What do you think of the new Goosebumps trailer?

In the first Goosebumps, he also voiced Slappy, but Deadline was told that "it's the voice of the puppeteer Avery Jones" in the sequel. Let us know your thoughts by dropping a comment below!

Goosebumps 2 which is being called Haunted Halloween, is arriving just in time for the holiday, debuting in theaters on October 12.
