Child’s Play is set to release this summer, however, it is not the only toy to come to life this June. The same weekend the horror remake hits big screens, Toy Story 4 is expected to be released as counter programming for the highly anticipated horror remake. It is likely that the Pixar film will be the bigger hit of that weekend, however that won’t stop Chucky from making fun of Woody and friends.

In the newest poster for Child’s Play, we see the foot of Chucky walking away leaving behind him a familiar looking cowboy hat with a detached arm. The toy behind Chucky is meant to represent Woody and Chucky walking away from the arm with the stuffing all around it implies that Chucky murdered Woody. Not only is this some dark subtle humor having Child’s Play’s main character kill Toy Story’s protagonist, but the background looks almost exactly like the background to some of Toy Story 4′s first posters. It seems very self aware that the film is coming out the same day as a film with very similar elements to it, and it’s definitely making the most out of it.
Child’s Play is set to release June 21st 2019.
