This Halloween, Freddy and the gang are dying to meet you. Five Nights At Freddy’s is in theaters and streaming on Peacock October 27th, 2023, and ahead of the film’s release, some of the crew involved with the project have shared some tantalizing tidbits.

Director Emma Tammi and producer Jason Blum were both present at a Five Night’s At Freddy’s Comic-Con panel, and they were more than happy to talk about the upcoming movie. First up, Tammi teased a character’s inclusion in the film that hasn’t been spoiled by trailers so far.

“Well, I will say there’s one FNAF character that we have not yet revealed in any of the teasers or trailers. So, that’s something to look forward to.”

Following that, producer Jason Blum shed some light on why it took so long for the film adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s to get off the ground.

“One of the reasons which will be interesting to you guys, why the movie took so long is that Hollywood [is that] sometimes, not always, it makes the mistake when they’re adapting like a super popular book or a super popular game to start out at the very beginning to make a movie that not only will satisfy the fans of the book or the game, but bring a larger audience. There’s always that pressure to bring a larger audience.

One of the reasons this movie took so long to do is [because that’s] how we started to [develop it] and but what became clear through the development process is that the only way to pull this off was to make the movie for fans of Five Nights at Freddy’s and if anyone else came, fine. What Emma did so well and what we’ve what we finally figured out is that we should make a movie that works for the fans. If anyone else comes that’s great, but not try and please them too.”

Five Nights at Freddy’s follows a troubled security guard as he begins working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. While spending his first night on the job, he realizes the night shift at Freddy’s won’t be so easy to make it through. The film stars Josh Hutcherson (Ultraman, The Hunger Games franchise), Elizabeth Lail (You, Mack & Rita), Piper Rubio (Holly & Ivy, Unstable), Kat Conner Sterling (We Have a Ghost, 9-1-1), with Mary Stuart Masterson (Blindspot, Fried Green Tomatoes) and Matthew Lillard (Good Girls, Scream).

That's interesting because I didn't expect William Afton to appear in the first movie and now we're getting another familiar face? Maybe his son?
