Official Press Release
TabTale will be publishing the official mobile games based on two highly-anticipated Sony Pictures films releasing in 2019: ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ sequel
Los Angeles – November, 2019 – TabTale, the mobile game publisher with over 2.6 billion downloads across its portfolio, is announcing today the creation of two new Free to Play (F2P) mobile games based on iconic Sony Pictures Entertainment franchise’s “Charlie’s Angels” and the sequel to “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” with both games scheduled to release simultaneously with the new films. “Charlie’s Angels” comes out in November 2019, and “Jumanji” in December 2019. The deals expand on TabTale And Sony Pictures’ previous mobile game collaboration on the Hotel Transylvania TV series.
The action-packed “Charlie’s Angels” movie (directed by Elizabeth Banks, screenplay by Elizabeth Banks, and story by Evan Spiliotopoulos and David Auburn), releasing on November 15, 2019, inspired the new F2P game. In this addictive and modern side-scrolling running game, players will leap into action with simple, fluid, and intuitive controls to start catching crooks, busting bosses, performing high-speed car chases, and fending off enemies.
Following the monumental success of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” the mobile game will feature innovative action-adventure game mechanics that include the option of running in four different directions: over the shoulder, towards the player, up, and down. In this game, players find themselves fighting for their lives against enemies, climbing up the steepest cliffs, free-falling off waterfalls, and escaping from a horde of furious hyenas. Players can play as their favorite characters, featuring fun, stylized likenesses of the stars of the movie. The sequel to “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (directed by Jake Kasdan, written by Jake Kasdan, Jeff Pinker, Scott Rosenberg, and based on the book Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg) makes its way to theaters on December 13, 2019.
“We’re thrilled to continue our relationship with TabTale on extending Sony Pictures’ brands into mobile game platforms given their massive, immediate audience network,” said Jamie Stevens, Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products, Sony Pictures. “The new games will be the perfect complement to our upcoming franchise titles releasing in theaters later this year.”
Sony Pictures and TabTale have had previous success with the beloved “Hotel Transylvania Adventures” mobile game based on the Hotel Transylvania TV series. The game was developed and published by TabTale last December and has accumulated over 21 million downloads, with avid fans enjoying the game all over the world.
“Prolonging the fun and excitement you experience while watching a movie is gradually becoming a must,” said Sagi Schliesser, CEO & Co-Founder of TabTale. “We are proud to launch the official games for the movies that will dominate the box office this holiday season.”
