Child's Play hits theaters June 21
Looks like Chucky will be as terrifying as ever when he returns to the big screen this summer.
Orion Pictures revealed the first look at Chucky in the upcoming Child’s Play remake hitting theaters on June 21. The shot features the horrifying doll half in shadow while holding a large knife, and the Buddi logo is front and center.
Star Wars actor Mark Hamill revealed in a video that he will be voicing the murderous doll. The video first played during the film’s panel at WonderCon earlier this month, with Hamill addressing the crowd of fans.
“Hello WonderCon, it’s Mark Hamill here. And if you’re wondering who’s going to voice Chucky in the new Child’s Play, you’re looking at him,” Hamill says in the video. “I can’t wait to bring such an iconic character to life and present him in a way you’ve never seen him before. Child’s Play this summer, we’re gonna have some fun. And remember: he’s more than just a toy, he’s your best friend.”
The first trailer for Chucky’s terrifying return dropped in March, with Aubrey Plaza getting the short end of the stick. The 34-year-old actress plays a well-meaning mother who buys her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll. But things quickly start to go downhill when the doll turns out to be a psycho serial killer.
The movie comes 30 years after the original by the same name made its debut in 1988 and reimagines Chucky’s origin story, much like the way 2017’s It gave new life to an old and terrifying character.
Child’s Play, also starring Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry as a detective investigating the murders, hits theaters June 21.
