Sony Pictures announces toy plans for upcoming Ghostbusters, Jumanji, Get Smurfy and other films

Mark Caplan, Sony Pictures’ new senior vice president of global consumer products, has revealed the firm’s toy plans for big screen properties including Ghostbusters, Get Smurfy and the Jumanji remake.

Mattel has signed a deal to be the global master toy licensee for next year’s Ghostbusters reboot, set to hit screens in July 2016 with an all-female team, and Sony Pictures has shed some light on the slate of planned products, spanning blind bags, board games and action figures.

“Mattel has developed a really broad line of products,” Sony’s Mark Caplan told ToyNews (we basically lifted most of their story since it was quotes, so please give them some traffic as a way for us to apologize for this).

“We’re going after collectors with blind bag figures at a very reasonable price point. In each figure pack there’s a piece of a particular character, so if a consumer buys all four, they can assemble a separate ghost.

“Mattel is also doing a board game and six-inch figures of both the classic Ghostbusters and the brand new movie. The firm is developing a new Eco-1 and the collectable characters can fit into the car. Mattel is also creating the Proton Pack. What kid would not want to throw that on?

“Alongside Mattel, we have LEGO on board, Funko doing Pop! Vinyl and Rubie’s is making costumes. It’s expansive. We have something for everyone, whether you’re a collector or an everyday toy buyer.”

Elsewhere, it was revealed back in August that Sony was developing a Jumanji remake and the firm’s plans involve a board game that it hopes can match the success of the original Hasbro game from the Nineties.

Caplan continued: “Jumanji has an interesting place in the toy world. Back in the late Nineties, Hasbro developed a board game based on the movie. That’s the path for us in toys with the return of Jumanji, to create a board game and even a mobile game.

“Maybe there is something we can do where the mobile game interacts with the board game. It’s early days for that but I think it’s a natural fit.”

Exect more from Hotel Transylvania in 2017 as the brand enters the toy market with the arrival of an animated TV series then.

“Hotel Transylvania 2 has done tremendously well and there’ll be more content moving forward,” said Caplan. “There’s an animated series coming and that’s when we’ll focus on developing a toy partnership for Hotel Transylvania because being on television will drive more awareness for it.”

2017 will also see Sony bring The Smurfs to the big screen once again in Get Smurfy, a new fully animated movie.

Sony has signed a master toy deal with Jakks Pacific for the film and Caplan believes that Get Smurfy will provide a wealth of opportunities for success in the toy space.

“If you remember how successful the little Smurf figurines were back in the day, we’re bringing those back,” Caplan revealed.

“There’s a lot of different play patterns that we’ll be tapping into with The Smurfs, from role play to construction and even ‘create your own’ products. It’s early stages but it’s an evergreen brand and in toys, there’s an endless amount of product we can make.”

Boba Fett, Legendary Mandalorian Bounty Hunter has a long and colorful history. While many fans remember him from The Empire Strikes Back as well as his animate debut in The Star Wars Holiday Special, his true first appearance was as a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair on September 24, 1978! At the time, Lucasfilm was headquartered at 52 Park Way in San Anselmo, about twenty minutes north of San Francisco. As part of harvest parade, Darth Vader and for the first time in public, Boba Fett, marched throughout the street waving to fans of all ages. The armor was worn by assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham and featured several noticeable difference such as the brightly colored blue jump suit, yellow and red armor highlights, as well as the “tribal marks” on his helmet; all altered for his later film appearances. JAKKS Pacific is excited to celebrate this legendary character and offer an articulated action figure of First Appearance Boba Fett or the first time ever!
