The popular talking bear toy from the 1980s is heading to the big screen. A live-action/animated hybrid Teddy Ruxpin film is in development from Sonic the Hedgehog‘s DJ2 Entertainment. The toy version featured a moving mouth and eyes that were activated when a cassette tape, placed in the bear’s back, would play. I had one, and it terrifies me to this day. The plan is for the film to spin-off into an animated series (there used to be one). No word on whether Teddy’s buddy Grubby will feature in the film.
