Poppy Playtime has soared in popularity over recent years, with the compact indie horror game expanding its player base to over 12 million enthusiasts since its introduction. The game has evolved with additional chapters, narrative developments, sinister characters to elude, and extended platform availability, and plans are in place to eventually grow into a full-length live-action motion picture.

Developer MOB Entertainment has sealed an agreement with Legendary to produce a film grounded in the game's universe, a venture that Legendary will cultivate in partnership with MOB and the production duo of Angry Film's Don Murphy and Susan Montford, who are on board as producers.

The film will be a cinematic interpretation of the game, which MOB characterizes as follows: "Drawing inspiration from elements reminiscent of Willy Wonka, Toy Story, and Gremlins, the first-person video game centers around an ex-staffer of a once-vibrant toy company who, lured by a mysterious letter, returns to the now-deserted and locked-down facility only to find that it is overrun with toys, such as Huggy Wuggy, Mommy Long Legs, and CatNap, which have mysteriously come to life. Gamers must decode hints, tackle riddles, and utilize tools to unravel the secrets and escape with their lives."

As of now, there are no specifics about when production will start, the time frame for its release, or information about casting, yet it is expected that details will emerge in due course.

It’s important to note that this isn't the inaugural announcement for a Poppy Playtime film, considering MOB previously connected with Studio71 in 2022 for a comparable cinematic endeavor that seems to have dissolved. This fresh collaboration between MOB and Legendary appears to be an entirely different venture.
