Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: FNAF World: The Movie (film ideas)
This storyline contain select elements from the FNAF series as a whole, along with the teasers for FNAF World. Other than that, it’s mostly my own ideas.
Six years have passed since the events of the third movie. Nick and Jenny have graduated college and are happily married, but neither has forgotten their “adventure” with the retired animatronics from Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Even still, they continue to see former night guard Jeremy Fitzgerald and John C. Franklin, the billionaire who purchased the animatronics, on a regular basis. One day, the billionaire reveals his plan to build an amusement park based on the retired franchise, having purchased the rights to the characters upon buying them years ago. Jeremy is initially skeptical of the plan considering the infamy that came with the franchise, but is assured that every precaution has been taken to keep trouble away. The animatronics are briefed of the plan, though only Freddy is hesitant to accept the idea.
The park soon opens to wide critical acclaim from fans both young and old. Nick and Jenny visit the park at one point and are amazed at what they see. Jeremy visits as well and is especially glad to see Balloon Boy rebuilt and possessing his memories of the former guard. The tiny animatronic is made even happier by the addition of a counterpart named Balloon Girl, who takes a shine to him. However, in the wake of the park’s success, nasty rumors begin circulating about what happens at night. The rumors get even worse when security guards start to disappear. Nick meets up with Jeremy, who agrees to take a look at what happens after hours. Mr. Franklin denies any wrongdoing, though the assistant manager Harold Fazbear immediately pins blame on the billionaire. After much discussion, Nick and his allies (Jenny, Harold, Jeremy, and Uncle George) are allowed to explore the park, which is made easier by the additional help of Mr. Franklin himself.
Initially, everything seems to be in perfect working order; the hours roll over to midnight and no trouble appears. Suddenly, Jenny stumbles across a storage room whose door seems to have been ripped open at the seams. Mr. Franklin takes a quick look inside and sees that the room is empty; upon being asked what was in there, the billionaire seems hesitant to answer. Instead, Harold reveals that along with building most of the miniature animatronics used in the rides, he also rebuilt the toy animatronics and the Puppet. However, they were not to be put in working order for another week.
Jeremy angrily berates Harold for reviving the evil animatronics, but Nick then asks if any of Springtrap’s remains were used; Harold responds by asking who Springtrap was. Soon, the group splits up into three duos and begins searching areas of the park alone. Mr. Franklin and Jeremy search a boardwalk-style area that possesses arcade games. There, they find Mangle (who is somehow put back together correctly) playing a skeet ball game. Upon seeing the two, the animatronic transforms back into its “Mangle” appearance and charges towards them.
Although able to avoid the monstrous machine by hiding in an arcade, Jeremy and Mr. Franklin are quickly found by miniature versions of the old animatronics, who act like gremlins as they tear the circuits apart. Strangely, they are forced to retreat when someone flashes a light at them. Upon looking up, the two humans are shocked to find Mike Schmidt standing in the doorway, apparently no worse for wear. Although initially happy, Jeremy questions how his cousin can be there if he’s been dead for around six years. Mike replies to this by revealing he’s a ghost that happens to look as real as a living person.
At the same time, Nick and Jenny are in the “Pirate’s Cove” area of the park, where they find Toy Bonnie using his guitar as an ax to smash everything; fortunately, the duo manages to avoid the toy animatronic, but are swiftly forced to split in order to cover two different areas. Nick searches the food court, only to be ambushed by Toy Chica, who begins seducing him just as Jenny enters the room, who stomps out in anger only to return when Nick starts screaming.
Returning inside, Jenny sees Toy Chica throwing chairs at Nick; Jenny tries to help, but is punched in the face by the toy animatronic. Suddenly, Toy Chica shudders and shuts down; it’s revealed that her system has been overwritten by the ghost of Frank Fazbear, who mentions how much trouble the toy animatronics had been in the past thanks to their evil natures. Jenny is able to forgive Nick, only to find Toy Freddy marching in with a wrench in his hands. The two humans and the ghost manage to escape the food court and reach where the older animatronics are kept. Frank reactivates them and explains their situation, to which the animatronics agree to help. At this point, Uncle George appears and announces that Harold has vanished.
Cut back to the team of Jeremy, Mike and Mr. Franklin; having reached the prize corner of the park, they take time to rest. Suddenly, an evil chuckle emerges from a glass box, which opens to reveal the Puppet rebuilt and just as evil. The animatronic mocks the trio for attempting to “stop the show” and mentions “the grandmaster of ceremonies” has yet to show up. At this point, the Puppet cryptically mentions “one of you is actually one of us,” before the curtains close on it. At this point, miniatures of the toy animatronics appear with hammers and crowbars. However, they are again scared off by a flashlight, which is followed by an uneasy “Hello, hello?”
Sure enough, it is none other than the voice of Fritz Smith, who reveals that Jeremy wasn’t the first one to give him the nickname “Phone Guy”. He goes on to say that the trouble is being caused not only by the Puppet, but Harold and the ghost of Patrick “Purple” Mann, who is no longer bound by the Springtrap suit. Mr. Franklin questions why Harold is involved, to which Fritz reveals that the descendent of Frank Fazbear has struck a deal with the murderer stating that in exchange for his life being spared and reaping the riches of the park, Mann is free to kill whoever he pleases by night, especially Mr. Franklin. Mike expresses doubt that Mann will keep his end of the bargain, which Jeremy agrees on.
Suddenly, Freddy arrives with the other old animatronics except for Balloon Boy; he reveals the toys are arriving along with the miniature animatronics. Fortunately, Fritz leads the group to a shed where the tools are kept; hammers, wrenches, tazers, and even a chainsaw are taken as weapons against the monsters. One by one, the toys are hunted down and destroyed (Toy Freddy with the chainsaw, Toy Bonnie with a hammer, Toy Chica with a wrench, and Mangle with a tazer), leaving only the Puppet alive and somehow escaping its confinement; it mocks on how Balloon Boy has gone missing and will be destroyed again, which earns it a tazer in the face and Mike breaking the Puppet’s mask.
At the same time, Balloon Boy is shown to be kept hostage by miniature versions of the nightmare models. However, he is saved by the appearance of Balloon Girl, who leads her counterpart to the Ferris wheel; here, they admit they like each other, but have to help the humans escape alive. The duo finds the humans and ghosts, who have reunited to track down the minis. They find them at the haunted-house ride, ironically called “Fazbear’s New Fright”. Inside, they find Harold waiting for them; he talks about how he actually hates the franchise his ancestor Fredrick “Freddy” Fazbear started; only caring for the profit it makes as “money’s what the world revolves around”. With that, he unleashes the minis on the heroes and turns to leave, only to find the door locked.
At this point, the cackling of “Purple” Mann is heard as the murderer materializes. Harold demands to be let out, but Mann responds “You can’t,” and has the minis devour him. The killer than activates a time to bombs that will destroy the entire park, only for the other ghosts to pin him down while Freddy breaks down the door; once outside, “Fazbear’s New Fright” bursts into flames while everyone watches. But just as they prepare to sigh in relief, each attraction explodes as “Purple” Mann emerges. Jeremy belittles the killer for doing all his evil “just for some kid who was killed.” Mann just laughs and inadvertently provokes the powers of hell by adding that “it was such good fun too”. Suddenly, several ghost children emerge and begin attacking the murderer; finally, a portal opens and a giant demon emerges to grab Patrick “Purple” Mann and drag him down to hell for eternal punishment. After this, a cloaked figure emerges from the portal and somehow restores Mike and Fritz to life, claiming "It's a just reward for sending an overdue evil where it belongs."
The portal then closes and the fires go out; Jeremy shakes his head at how twisted Mann was. However, Mike, Fritz, and the spirit Frank offer comfort by saying that although the park was destroyed, perhaps Mr. Franklin should consider building a new Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, to which the billionaire agrees to do. The next day, the newspapers report the burning of the park, which Mr. Franklin pins the blame on Harold, who is said to have “died in his own crime.” The billionaire then goes on to say he will rebuild the pizzeria by year’s end.
Sure enough, the new and improved Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza opens its doors on Christmas Day; as with the park, wide popular acclaim comes along with it. Nick and Jenny are hired as security guards along with Jeremy. At night, it’s revealed that Mike, Fritz, and the spirit of Frank have chosen to stick around in order to “keep an eye on the franchise we’ve all come to love.” As Bonnie breaks into song, Nick shares a toast of soda with everyone, glad the nightmare is finally over.
Nick: Now 25, Nick has matured a lot since his encounter at Franklin’s warehouse. That being said, he’s not prepared for what he finds at the Freddy Fazbear amusement park
Jenny: Despite her encounter in the warehouse, Jenny still has fond memories of the pizza chain. However, she is terrified of what she finds in the amusement park

Harold Fazbear: The assistant manager of the park and the great-grandson of Frank Fazbear. He cares little for anything other than profit and is even willing to leave others to die to take over the park and the riches that come with it.
Freddy: Fully repaired, Freddy is the only one who’s a bit uneasy over the amusement park idea, admitting that the pizzeria was their true home. That being said, he does admit that the chance to entertain people is always welcome.
Bonnie: Fully repaired and with his eyesight restored, Bonnie loudly voices his support for the amusement park plan upon hearing of it.
Chica: Fully repaired, Chica is initially nervous about the amusement park but admits it would be a great return to form for all of them.

Toy Bonnie: Although initially programmed to be kid friendly, Toy Bonnie reverts to the snarky persona by night
Toy Chica: Although initially programmed to be kid friendly, Toy Chica reverts to the seductress as soon as night falls.
Toy Foxy (Mangle): Although initially programmed to be kid friendly and complete, Toy Foxy returns to the insane Mangle once the park closes
Puppet: Although destroyed in the fire at Fazbear’s Fright, the Puppet has been rebuilt and returned to its sinister persona. That being said, it’s trapped in a glass performing case and simply taunts the heroes.
Minis: Miniature versions of the Freddy Fazbear crew through the ages (old, toy, Fredbear, and non-withered Springtrap); they are positioned in the various attractions while the bigger versions perform on a stage. They are reprogrammed to cause disasters at night, almost like gremlins.

Fritz Smith/Phone Guy: At least 36 years after being killed by the Toy Animatronics and 26 years after supposedly moving on, the “Phone Guy” has returned as a ghost that looks as real as a living person to guide the humans through the night. He appears as a clean-shaven man with dark brown hair and is revived near the end of the story.
Patrick “Purple” Mann: A child murderer who caused the infamy of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza in one way or another; as with the other ghosts, he appears as real as a living human and apparently no longer bound by the Springtrap suit. He has black hair, wears a purple guard uniform and cap, and always seems to have an evil smile on his face. It's also revealed that he was supposed to have entered the underworld long ago.
Frank Fazbear: The last owner of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza; he was killed by “Purple” Mann shortly before the murderer was killed by the Springtrap suit. Now, he appears as a ghost that is almost as real as a living human. Frank disapproves of the direction that Mr. Franklin has taken the franchise in, but does admit he appreciates the effort of keeping it alive. Frank also turns down the offer to be revived, claiming his life's work is through as it is.
Fredrick “Freddy” Fazbear: The original creator of the Freddy Fazbear franchise. He is said to have had a hand in molding the pizzeria through the 70s and most of the 80s, even after his grandson Frank took over. Sadly, Fredrick died of what many called a broken heart shortly after the Bite of ’87.
