Christian Stokes who plays Uncle Hank in Blumhouse’s live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie has teased that some major news may be coming out during Universal’s panel tonight at CinemaCon 2023, with the first trailer being the most likely announcement being referred to in Stokes’ social post.
Stokes took to Twitter just today to write “The animatronic characters here do get a bit quirky at night”, a clear reference to the animatronics from Five Nights at Freddy’s with the text being accompanied by a bear and pizza emoji, another clear reference to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, the titular character.

I’m hoping to hear news just like you are.” in regard to speculation that he had teased the release of a Five Nights at Freddy’s trailer for CinemaCon 2023.
It could be possible that Stokes is playing coy, however, only time will tell as to if Blumhouse shares any new FNAF updates either today or tomorrow as of the writing of this article.
