Chucky Kills Toy Story's Woody In New Child's Play Reboot Poster
So long, partner.
Woody and Buzz aren't the only famous movie dolls returning to the big screen this summer. The long-awaited Pixar sequel Toy Story 4 hits theaters on June 21, and it will be joined that day by the horror reboot Child's Play, featuring iconic killer doll Chucky. A new Child's Play poster has now been released to mark the movies' shared release date.
The poster shows Chucky as he walks away from another scene of slaughter. Unfortunately his victim seems to be poor Woody, the cowboy star of the Toy Story movies. Check it out below, as tweeted by IMDB:
Child's Play stars Aubrey Plaza (Legion), Brian Tyree Henry (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), and Gabriel Bateman (Light's Out), plus Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky. It's directed by Lars Klevberg, who has also helmed the upcoming horror movie Polaroid. The second trailer for Child's Play was recently released, and you can also check out our ranking of every movie in the Child's Play series.
In a recent interview with Nightmarish Conjurings, Klevberg talked about the new movie's twist--Chucky can now control electronic devices. "I think that every good horror movie connects to its generation," he said. "Right now, we all trust devices like Alexa to control all the electronics in our homes and to help organize our life. But what if that device took on a human form and could walk around? Then it would be something completely different and our film is just taking that concept to another level."
Confusingly for fans, there's also an unconnected Child's Play TV show being developed for SyFy, simply titled Chucky. It's produced by series creator Don Mancini, and follows on from the 2017 movie The Cult of Chucky.
