Additionally, it seems to draw upon all of the games in the series, rather than retelling them in order. This is evident from the appearance of Springtrap , an animatronic that didn’t appear until the third game in the series.
The movie’s production has been a long and troubled one, with delays and creative differences between the studio and the game’s creator, Scott Cawthon .
Cawthon’s controversial exit from the gaming industry in 2021, after revelations about his political donations to far-right Republicans, may have also impacted the film’s production.
Despite the challenges, fans of the game series are eagerly awaiting the release of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie. If this leaked trailer is anything to go by, it looks like it will be a terrifying and thrilling adaptation of the popular game series.
