New Trailer For “Child’s Play” Arrives With Debut of Mark Hamill’s Chucky Voice

Recently, Mark Hamill announced he would be the voice of Chucky in the new “Child’s Play” remake. Fans were excited but skeptical of this news, especially since Hamill’s voice has been lended to some iconic characters in the past. Today, with the first full trailer for “Child’s Play” dropping, we get out first change to hear how this new Chucky will sound.

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.

Child’s Play” arrives in theaters on June 21.

Meet The New Chucky From “Child’s Play” Remake

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.

Chucky was confirmed to be played by legendary actor and voiceover star Mark Hamill, a decision we may not be the fondest of.

The new “Child’s Play” movie stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Mark Hamill, and is directed by Lars Klevberg.

Expect Chucky to slash his way into theaters on June 21.

Mark Hamill Reacts To “Rise Of Skywalker” Movie Title

The internet was in full freak out mode last week, when during Star Wars Celebration 2019, the title was revealed for “Star Wars Episode IX“. As opposed to an earlier report that gave a very convincing but ultimately wrong title, the film will be called “Rise of Skywalker”, leaving more questions than when we had no name at all.

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.

Check out his tweet below:

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👍 https://t.co/avfffLvC1z— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) April 12, 2019

“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.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is expected to hit theatres on December 20th.

Mark Hamill Becomes Voice Of Chucky In “Child’s Play” Reboot

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”:

Check out the tweet below:

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.
