Before we get into our love of the Goosebumps movie, Slappy, one of our favorite characters has something to say:
Okay moms – let’s go!
Back in July, I had the opportunity to catch the advanced screening of Goosebumps in New York City. My five-year-old toddler, Kannon Ball, was totally excited about the film, although he was new to the Goosebumps family! I won’t lie – I was a little terrified because of his age and how he would process the story line and the characters…but, boy was I fooled. Other than one or two parts where he grabbed my arm, my son watched Goosebumps with sheer pleasure. Maybe he is a little fiction writer on the rise.
At the super cool press screening, which offered snacks and scares, we were greeted by Goosebumps star Jack Black, who plays R.L Stine, a rather creepy author with a whole lot of humor. In person, his energy was vivid just as he is in the film–his personality was bright as ever. Check out the official trailer here:
To give you a little background on Goosebumps – it’s a series of fiction-based novels penned by author, R.L Stine. The books are published by our friends at Scholastic Publishing. In fact, Mommynoire is partnering with them on an exclusive book giveaway. To be considered, drop a comment on our Mommynoire’s Facebook page and Instagram page noting why you should receive the books. Don’t forget to add the hashtag: #GoosebumpsMovie. We will contact winners via their social media page on Wednesday, October 14th!
Also, while we are talking about our cool Scholastic partnership – did you know that they have fun classroom activities for kids, such as How To Write A Scary Story! Moms, this is your chance to bring the author out of your children. The goal is simple: students explore literary elements and what makes a story scary. In particular, students will focus on setting, characters, suspense, and twists. For more on writing scary stories, watch Jack Black’s video here!
Goosebumps is in theaters on October 16, 2015.
