The above is the redesign of the iconic, murderous doll who will be voiced by none other than American actor and voice actor Mark Hamill. The film will be a contemporary remake of the original 1988 slasher film of the same name, with Chucky being the product of a mass producing toy company rather than black magic at the hands of a dying murderer.
Child’s Play will follow Karen Barclay, played by Aubrey Plaza, as she gifts her son Andy, played by Gabriel Bateman, a toy Buddi doll. This doll happens to be Chucky himself, but both are unaware of the murderous and evil intent that the toy possesses. It is directed by director Lars Klevberg from a screenplay penned by Tyler Burton Smith. The film has been marketed interestingly through social media, and has its own website mimicking that of the fictional toy company with adverts for Buddi dolls.
Earlier this year, we were given our first look at the film through a teaser trailer that never showed Chucky himself in its entirety. Child’s Play is set to be released on June 21st of this year and distributed by Orion Pictures.
