Goosebumps 2 is officially called Slappy Halloween, according to author R.L. Stine
who also revealed that the movie has started filming. Fans have been waiting since 2015 for any news about the sequel, and slowly, reports have been trickling in, with previous reports calling the movie Slappy's Revenge and even Horrorland, over the summer of 2017. The first movie starred Jack Black
and was a huge success upon its release in October of 2015, earning over $150 million off of an initial budget of $58 million. Here's what Stine had to say on social media.
"Happy to announce that filming has begun on the Goosebumps
movie sequel. Title: Slappy Halloween. Meanwhile, the new Goosebumps SlappyWorld book has just been published."
Slappy the Dummy is making his return for Goosebumps 2, but it's still not clear if Jack Black will return to voice the character at this time. It had been previously reported that the sequel will feature a brand-new cast.
