A new movie is in works about Beanie Babies! Where was this in the 90s???
Zach Galifianakis and Elizabeth Banks will star alongside Succession‘s Sarah Snook and Blockers actress Geraldine Viswanathan in The Beanie Bubble that has landed at Apple. The Imagine Entertainment project was written by Saturday Night Live alum Kristin Gore, who will co-direct the movie with husband and fellow filmmaker Damian Kulash, the Grammy-winning lead singer behind the band Ok Go.
The Beanie Bubble, which is based on Zac Bissonette’s book The Great Beanie Baby Bubble: Mass Delusion and the Dark Side of Cute, is inspired by the craze in the ’90s that saw the plush animals toys collected as financial investments due to their prospective resale values.
My mom collected Beanie Babies when we were younger and we even had a Beanie Baby room. I might have to check out this movie. Will you?
