The trailer for Lars Kleveberg‘s Child’s Play remake is here giving us a look at the new Chucky voiced by Mark Hamill. While the killer doll lurks in the shadows we get a taste of the movie coming to theaters this June, including his origin story. Originally known as “The Good Guy Doll” the red-headed killer has been rebranded as “Buddi”, an A.I. doll.
In the film, Aubrey Plaza plays the role of a mother who gives her son (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll for his birthday, unaware of its sinister nature.
Beatrice Kitsos (“The Exorcist”), Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”), and Ty Consiglio also star in the film written by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury).
Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg are producing under their KatzSmith Productions banner. Aaron Schmidt and Chris Ferguson are executive producing.
Child’s Play will open in theaters on June 21, 2019.
