There’s a lot of attention to detail in the feature, as fans can see their favorite haunted world coming to life in previously released teasers and images. Hutcherson assures fans “I think for those hardcore Five Nights at Freddy’s fans out there, they can rest assured that we are taking care of their world, taking care of their game, and taking care of these characters.” From the accurate reconstruction of the pizzeria to the magnificent animatronics, the feature has all the facets in place to win fans’ hearts.
