Pac-Man made his first appearance in 1980.
Pac-Man is getting a feature film from Wayfarer Studios and Bandai Namco Entertainment. The popular classic arcade game franchise is getting the live-action treatment that comes from the concept by Lightbeam Entertainment’s Chuck Williams, known for Sonic the Hedgehog. Pac-Man is a yellow circular creature with a large mouth that can run through maze walls and ghosts after eating a blue pellet. The last time we saw Pac-Man on the big screen was in Pixels starring Kevin James and Adam Sandler. The 2015 film was surprisingly good, and fans have been wanting a sequel.
When aliens intercept video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack Earth, using the games as models. Knowing that he must employ a similar strategy, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood pal, former video-game champ and home-theater installer Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to lead a team of old-school arcade players and a military specialist (Michelle Monaghan) in an all-out battle to save the planet.
