It's been a while coming, and a couple of false starts as well, but Sony has finally managed to assemble a sequel to their modestly successful family-friendly hit Goosebumps.
Jack Black doesn't return in this sequel, and for that matter neither does director Rob Letterman, but director Ari Sandel has taken over the reins with a new group of kids led by It star Jeremy Ray Taylor and Caleel Harris (Castle Rock).
In the sequel, two kids (Taylor and Harris) wander into Stine’s old house — “I don’t think this house is giving out candy,” says one. The real craziness begins when they find a locked book that unleashes Slappy. “Did you miss me?” asks the dummy who then sets off to bring more creatures to life on Halloween.
Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Chris Parnell (Archer), and Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken) round out the cast.
