Netflix recently unveiled its lineup of original programming for Halloween. This year’s ‘Netflix & Chills’ list includes a new original film starring Adam Sandler: Hubie Halloween.
Now we’re getting our first look at the family-friendly comedy, which is full of familiar faces in addition to Sandler.
Check out the trailer for the movie below.
Hubie Halloween tells the story of Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler). Hubie thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, it’s up to Hubie to convince the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) and townsfolk that the monsters are real, and only he can stop them.
From the Hubie Halloween trailer, it’s clear Netflix is doubling down on getting big names to lead their original programming. (Sandler recently starred in Murder Mystery opposite Jennifer Anniston for the streamer.) Sandler, Thompson, and James feature in the trailer, in addition to Julie Bowen and Maya Rudolph. In fact, a whole host of familiar faces will appear in the film, including Rob Schneider, Shaquille O’Neal, Tim Meadows and Steve Buscemi (just to name a few).
Sandler produced the film under his Happy Madison banner.
Hubie Halloween his Netflix October 7.
