At one level within the trailer, we see Mike Schmidt in a discipline surrounded by babies, and it is fairly doubtless that the kids are the souls of the victims who inhabit the animatronics wreaking havoc at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza (have a look at their equipment for extra proof). Whereas there is not any assure that any of the kids current are purported to be Golden Freddy, the blocking formation of the kids has one child on his personal. Not solely is he the one one not in line, an indication that he isn’t a part of the unique group of 4, however he is additionally donning vibrant blonde hair, the largest visible distinction from Freddy Fazbear to the Golden Freddy go well with.
To not get tin foil hat about it, however that little one is performed by Grant Feely, the one child on the movie’s IMDb casting with out a character title. Maybe Common and Blumhouse elected to not reveal his character on-line, understanding full properly that weirdos like me would glom onto that little element and run wild with hypothesis. This additionally permits the movie to construct a connection to the opposite characters within the movie, like maybe a bit of brother of Vanessa.
Vanessa is proven to be a police officer and is aware of fairly a bit concerning the tragedies. It is also implied that she is aware of the key of the animatronics, in addition to the place to seek out the lights to show all of them on for a efficiency. If I needed to guess, she is aware of all of this as a result of her little brother was killed by Afton within the Eighties, and her solely solution to go to him is by hanging out with him within the Golden Freddy go well with. It might additionally clarify why he is proven to be such a sort presence to Abby Schmidt, as she’s additionally nonetheless only a little one.
