Check out the trailer below, and make sure to watch until the end to hear Hamill’s voice:
I am very elated to hear Hamill’s voice sounding so differently than what I expected. I think I wasn’t the only person concerned that Chucky would sound too much like The Joker, but this character sounds pretty unique. If I didn’t know it was Hamill, the VO actor would be completely unrecognizable to me.
Chucky is back in action in the new “Child’s Play” horror movie coming out later this year. Today, for the first time, we know what this new version of Chucky looks like.
Here is how the killer doll will appear in the new movie:
Last September, a tease was offered of the new doll (seen below), but this is the first time we have seen the entire character from head to toe.
An important thing to notice is that image from last year featured Chucky with blue eyes, while this one here has red eyes.
Also worth noting, the original film has Chuck being a Buddy doll, while this one has that word spelled “Buddi”, an allusion to Mac products and their penchant for adding “i” into their names. This may mean that this doll has more digital elements to it than its predecessor.
The OG Skywalker, Mark Hamill, sent out a tweet not long after giving his thoughts on it. Chances are it was his first time hearing about it too since everything was kept so hush-hush until Friday afternoon.
“It’s not #EpisodeIXFromHisNap or even my suggestion: #EpisodeIXABunchMoreStuffHappens- It’#EpisodeIXTheRiseOfSkywalker! It’s time for the 8 months of speculation to begin. Is that Skywalker KYLO? LEIA? ANAKIN? LUKE? A previously unknown SKYWALKER? Is REY a Skywalker? #CoolTitle.”
Just because Luke passed away in the last movie does not mean he can’t show up in this one as a force ghost, and I genuinely hope he does so we can get a shot of him together with Obi-Wan, Yoda, and perhaps even his father, Anakin.
The “Child’s Play” remake is moving along and nearing completion in time for a summer release. Not too long ago, we saw the first trailer for the film, but it neglected to reveal who the voice of the killer doll was. Now, we know who that is – and it’s legendary VO actor Mark Hamill.
Hamill made the announcement in a tweet addressing attendees of Wondercon, where he explained his excitement for the role and his hopes to “have some fun”:
I am always elated to see Mark Hamill working, especially in VO, but this is a role I am not too interested in seeing his take on. Hamill’s voice is so iconic, and also so familiar due to his decades of work in animation.
I was hoping “Child’s Play’ would take a note from the “It” remake and cast someone lesser known, to really make the role a surprise in many way. We know what Mark Hamill is capable of, and that voice is hard to mask. It’ll be hard not to visualize The Joker or another character he gave life to in the past, but I hope I’ll be wrong about that and Hamill delivers something new and different.
“Child’s Play” comes out this summer on June 21, 2019.
