First Reveal of Three New Puppets from ‘Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich’!

Recently, filming wrapped on the latest franchise reboot Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and today delivers your first look at three brand new puppets from the film, which were revealed at the Texas Frightmare event!

The new puppet designs are quite different to the originals, Blade and Tunneler feature totally new facial appearances. Also, we have a new frog/clown puppet named The Happy Amphibian joining the mix. What do you think of these little guys? We think creator Tate Steinsiek did a fine job.

Producers assert that the new will include the puppet mayhem mixed with comedy while expanding upon Toulon’s backstory. Kier will portray Toulon. Zahler sought out Laguna and Wiklund to direct due to his interest in their previous micro-budget horror films.

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich stars Udo Kier, Thomas Lennon (Hellbaby), Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin (Scott Pilgrim, Jobs), Charlyne Yi (Cloverfield), and Alex Beh, with genre fav Barbara Crampton (From Beyond, Re-Animator, You’re Next, Sun Choke), Tina Parker (“Breaking Bad”, The Final Destination), Skeeta Jenkins and the great Michael Paré (Streets on Fire).

Synopsis:
Puppet Master: The Little Reich centers on a recently divorced young man discovers a mint condition Blade doll in his deceased brother’s closet and plans to sell the toy at a convention in Texas celebrating the 30th anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose at during the auction when a strange force animates all of the various puppets throughout the convention as they go on a bloody killing spree.

Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk are producing for Cinestate, along with Jack Heller of Assemble Media. Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian of Di Bonaventura Pictures are also producers on the project along with frequent Laguna & Wiklund partner David Liljeblad.
