More on Child’s Play
While many fans are surely excited for the prospect of bringing this terrifying doll home with them, others aren’t stoked about the updated look.
According to director Lars Klevberg, the film is making a number of changes to Chucky besides his look though.
Unlike previous Child’s Play films, Chucky will not be a haunted serial killer doll but instead an artificial intelligence that’s conceited into Chucky’s character.
Klevberg also intends to use more humane characteristics that are “understandable from his point of view but also to us,” in addition to Chucky’s AI rework. The idea originated from Greek tragedies and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, which he claims as his key inspiration for the film.
On the redesign, Klevberg says the doll’s new look is essential for viewers to sympathize with his new character.
“Chucky’s looked different throughout all the films,” Klevberg shares. “For me—I always go off the script. So it came from that…I knew I wanted the audience to connect with Chucky emotionally on every level. He needed to be expressive, and I needed him to have the possibility to change. All those pieces need to fit together for a purpose, and that comes from the script and what the story is about.”
