Poppy Playtime is the next video game series to get the movie adaptation treatment.

After the success of the Five Nights at Freddy’s film, Hollywood is looking to make some quick cash off another horror game with a massive following: Poppy Playtime. Here’s what we know so far about the confirmed release of the spooky movie adaptation.

Legendary making Poppy Playtime film

Legendary beat out several other offers with an aggressive deal with Mob Entertainment. Legendary will develop and produce the film alongside Mob Entertainment and Angry Films’ Don Murphy and Susan Montford. The duo recently filmed Faces of Death, another Legendary horror movie.

Poppy Playtime will be a live-action film, meaning it will feature real actors and likely CGI elements for some of the toys and villains.

Poppy Playtime movie plot

Poppy Playtime is a horror game focused on survival with a dark backstory. The game centers around an abandoned toy facility known as Playtime Co., where a lot of experimenting and murder took place, including the notorious Hour of Joy.

There are many iconic characters that all feature a little bit of a creepy element, whether it’s a sharp-toothed dinosaur, empty-eyed plushies, or a murderous ragdoll teacher.

The plot and characters for the film adaptation have not been officially revealed this early on, however. We don’t know who will star in the film just yet or what will happen in this dark tale. But it’s being speculated that Huggy Wuggy may be at the center of the plot, since he featured on the Poppy Playtime movie announcement post.

Poppy Playtime movie release date

There is no official release date for the Poppy Playtime movie just yet.

The film was just announced yesterday, so it’s most likely in the very early stages of production. At this point, most of the people involved behind the scenes or on screen have not been revealed.
