A Beanie Baby Movie?!…Almost….

Monday, June 26th, 2023

Hi everyone!

We have seen many exciting new releases recently with the 30th Anniversary “Original” Beanie Babies. So far, there have been seven released (Valentino II, Bones II, Bongo II, Peanut II, Squealer II, Snort II and Peace II) with more Beanies to follow (stay tuned!).

Following on from the 90’s nostalgia is the announcement of a new Beanie Baby movie! Well….almost.

The movie focuses on the owner, Ty Warner (played by Zach Galifianakis), and the three women he collaborated with to create the most successful toy craze the world has known.

Elizabeth Banks stars as Ty’s business partner, Robbie, and Sarah Snook plays the part of Sheila Warner. The movie also stars Geraldine Viswanathan as Ty inc. employee, Maya.

It kind of makes Ty look like the Willy Wonka of the plush world, with plenty of eccentricity and colour.

The only thing that worries me is the lack of Beanies in the trailer. There are some, mainly cats and others that fly out in a truck crash briefly seen in the trailer.

A whopping 10,000 Beanies had to be created from scratch as the movie-makers only had permission to use the heart tag.

My thoughts on The Beanie Bubble movie…

The movie trailer actually looks pretty cool, so I’m really hoping this movie will live up to expectations.

The Beanie Bubble has plenty of colour and a lot of 90s nostalgia from the original Beanie Babies craze. I’m not certain how much of the movie is accurate, as I’m sure I read that Ty Warner never married (correct me if I’m wrong).

I’m just really hoping that we will see plenty of Beanie Babies featured in the movie, albeit Beanies that don’t exist.

When will the movie be released?

The Beanie Bubble is due to be released in select cinemas from 21st July 2023 and will be available to stream on Apple TV+ from 28th July 2023.
