‘Imaginary’ Director Jeff Wadlow On Bringing Chauncey To Life [Watch]


So many of us had imaginary friends growing up. But whatever happened to them? In the latest Blumhouse film Imaginary, director Jeff Wadlow imagines a world where imaginary friends aren’t so happy to be left behind.

In the film:

When Jessica (DeWanda Wise) moves back into her childhood home with her family, her youngest stepdaughter Alice (Pyper Braun) develops an eerie attachment to a stuffed bear named Chauncey she finds in the basement. Alice starts playing games with Chauncey that begin playful and become increasingly sinister.

As Alice’s behavior becomes more and more concerning, Jessica intervenes only to realize Chauncey is much more than the stuffed toy bear she believed him to be.

We spoke with Wadlow and producer Jason Blum about the creation of the iconic Chauncey and the creepiest thing kids have ever said to them.
