We’re less than two months away from the release of Orion’s Child’s Play reboot and, whether your optimistic or a staunch enemy of remakes, it’s hard not to find it all intriguing. Our curiosities were piqued when we learned the reboot is deleting the voodoo aspects in favor of an AI run amuck, but they really got our attention when it was revealed that Mark Hamill would be voicing the already-iconic devil doll, Chucky!
And speaking of Mr. Skywalker, a recent promo released on the official Child’s Play Twitter account gives us an earful of Hamill’s chilling chuckle. Have a listen (and brace yourself for some shivers)!
A mother gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of it’s more sinister nature.
Child’s Play is directed by Lars Klevberg from a screenplay penned by Tyler Burton Smith; in addition to Hamill, the film stars Aubrey Plaza, Tim Matheson, and Brian Tyree Henry. It’s a complete reboot (computer pun apropos) of 1988’s Child’s Play, directed by Tom Holland and written by Don Mancini.
