Today brings a brand new teaser for Lionsgate and Blumhouse's mysterious upcoming horror Imaginary, one that gives us a closer look at the adorable, fuzzy Chauncey the Bear - who is definitely not imaginary, and definitely not your friend.

Imaginary, which comes from director Jeff Wadlow (Cry Wolf, Kick-Ass 2, Truth or Dare), stars Jurassic World Dominion's DeWanda Wise (who is also onboard as producer), Tom Payne, Taegen Burns, Pyper Braun, Veronica Falcon, and Betty Buckley.

The plot synopsis reads:

“Jessica moves back into her childhood home with her family. Her youngest stepdaughter Alice 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.”

In this teaser, Chauncey gets his own kiddie commercial (not too dissimilar to M3GAN's - crossover incoming?), promising that he can be anything you want him to be - he can grow, he can shrink... and apparently he'll follow you around the house. What a cutie!

Wadlow, who also wrote the screenplay with Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, will produce as well as direct, with - of course - Jason Blum also in the producer's chair and Ryan Turek on executive producing duties.

Imaginary hits theaters on March 8, 2024 - don't forget your teddy!
