Celebrate Christmas with Goosebumps 2!

It is finally the day before Christmas! And this year's Christmas celebration can be made special with the official digital release of the well-acclaimed movie Goosebumps 2! Ready for a fun scare? Watch the movie via the Movies Anywhere App starting December 25.

Goosebumps 2 is coming to Blu-ray™ and DVD on January 15, 2019. Pre-order your copy here.


Be careful what you wish for. With their after school junk business, best friends Sonny and Sam hope to find treasure in other people’s trash. But when cleaning out the old Stine house, they open a locked book that frees a supernatural nightmare - Slappy! Now, with the help of Sonny’s sister Sarah, they’re in a race against time to get the sinister dummy and all the creatures he’s brought to life back into the pages before he unleashes total pandemonium!

Slappy the devious ventriloquist dummy returns to run amuck, in this second installment of the family-friendly franchise based on the best-selling Scholastic book series by R.L Stine. Standing in Slappy’s way is a terrifyingly talented cast including Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Jeremy Ray Taylor (It), Caleel Harris (Castle Rock), and Chris Parnell (Rick and Morty), with Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians). The film was directed by Academy Award®-winner Ari Sandel (2005, Best Short Film-Live Action, West Bank Story).


Bonus Features:
The Goosebumps 2 Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital bonus features include a gag reel full of hilarious hijinks, three all-new deleted scenes and five featurettes. Between the chills, thrills and goosebumps, watch the cast get a case of the giggles in the “Gag Reel.” Dive deep in “Thrills & Chills- The Making of Goosebumps 2” with Madison Iseman, along with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. “Meet the Monsters” gives fans a sneak peek of how the scary creatures were brought to life. In “Slappy’s Audition,” watch what happens when Slappy auditions for the role he was born to play. In “Science with Slappy,” enter the Slapatory where Madison, Jeremy and Caleel join Slappy for some electrifying experiments! And get ready to sing along with three hilarious “Slappy-oke” songs. Who knew dummies could sing?

In celebration of this upcoming release, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment sent us a fun gummy bear challenge kit, complete with a gianormous load of Haribo gummy bears, a mini treasure chest reminiscent of the one that appeared in the movie, holiday recipe cards, "Science with Slappy" card, and supplies for those recipes as well as for the gummy bear experiments.

As we are really curious about how well gummy bears could stand up to the toughest challenges, we started with the science experiment first. We put water, salt water, white vinegar and baking soda solution in each of the four test tubes labelled with tape and marker. Then we dropped one gummy bear in each tube and set aside one as the control sample.

We observed the gummy bears in the tubes for a little while, but didn't see any noticeable changes right away. So we decided to let them sit in the liquid overnight to see what would happen then. Would their color fade? Would they grow or shrink in size? Would the gummy bear in the vinegar dissolve partially, if not completely? What do you think the gummy bears would look like after being soaked for hours? Well, you've got to conduct your own experiment to find out the results. No spoiler from me :P. You are encouraged to get creative or adventurous about the types of liquid to use in the experiment. Here's a fun trick from Slappy: use tonic water and you'll see gummy bear glow in the dark!

The kit includes three recipes: Slappy's Holiday Thumbprint Cookies, Holiday Gummy Bear Bark, and Gummy Bear Holiday "Mocktails". All of them are easy to follow, with simple ingredients and a few steps. Even the kids can make these festive treats with a little help from their parents. Our favorite was the thumbprint cookies. We made 16 colorful, super tasty cookies using the suggested amount of ingredients in the recipe. Surprisingly they were not as sweet as I had expected. You may download the recipe card here.

The printable version of these colorful Goosebumps 2 themed holiday gift tags is also available for download here.

Whether you are celebrating Christmas in or outside your own home this year, you can add tons of fun to your day by watching Goosebumps 2 with family and friends. Don't forget to share your excitement on social media with hashtag #Goosebumps2! Merry Christmas to you ALL!
