How to watch new movie The Beanie Bubble on Apple TV


Apple TV+ today debuts its latest original film, The Beanie Bubble. It tells the story of the Beanie Babies craze of the late 90s, which saw the plush toys sell for thousands of dollars each. The CEO at the heart of it all raked in millions, at the expense of his subordinates running the operation.

The Beanie Bubble film is loosely based on true events.

A beardless Zach Galifianakis plays Ty Warner, the billionaire CEO of Ty Inc, the maker of Beanie Babies. As depicted in the film, much of his wealth arises due to the ingenuity of his executive team, who do not see fair compensation. Geraldine Viswanathan plays Maya, who represents the web-savvy smarts of Ty Inc at the time, who came up with various ways to propel the Beanies mania to ever-greater heights … while earning only a basic salary.

Warner also betrayed his girlfriends, Robbie and Sheila, played by Elizabeth Banks and Sarah Snook in the movie. The pair were deeply involved in crafting the operations at Ty Inc, and also saw little to no credit when all was said and done.
