We’ve just watched the new Child’s Play Trailer 2019 and have a reaction we want to share. Mostly… why are we doing this now? We love Chucky, and with movies like Seed of Chucky, Bride of Chucky, Curse of Chucky, and Cult of Chucky, the Child’s Play franchise has been amazing for so long, but a reboot now just seems weird.
WATCH the above video from USAAudiences’ The Turnout for our thoughts.
ABOUT THE CHUCKY CHARACTER (Wikipedia)
Charles Lee “Chucky” Ray is a fictional character and the main antagonist of the Child’s Play slasher film series. Chucky is portrayed as a notorious serial killer whose spirit inhabits a “Good Guys” doll and continuously tries to transfer his soul from the doll to a human body. The character has become one of the most recognizable horror icons, often mentioned alongside Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Ghostface, Leatherface, Pennywise, Pinhead and Michael Myers, and has been referenced numerous times in popular culture. In 1999, the Chucky character was nominated for the MTV Movie Award for Best Villain for the film Bride of Chucky. He was created by writer-director Don Mancini and is portrayed by Brad Dourif in both live-action and voice-over. For the 2019 remake of the same name, Mark Hamill will provide the voice of Chucky, having previously voiced the Charles Lee Ray version of the character in an episode of Robot Chicken.
