One of the most surprising films of last year, I didn’t expect ‘Goosebumps’ to be any good, however it was a fun zany adventure that was like a love letter to the fans of R.L. Stine’s beloved series of ‘Goosebumps’ books.

Collider reports that Sony Pictures have dated the sequel, which has been in development for a while now. ‘Goosebumps 2’ will debut in theatres on January 26th, 2018. The date seems odd, as the first film’s October date was more fitting with the Halloween season. However, I can’t really complain with that date as the first ‘Goosebumps’ premiered in theatres in Australia in January 2016.

This puts it as Sony Pictures Animation’s 4th film for  2018 as they have other films coming, including ‘Peter Rabbit’ in March, ‘Hotel Transylvania 3’ in September, and the untitled animated ‘Spider-Man’ movie in December.
