Now, at long last, we have our first good look at what the creepy main character is going to look like in the film.
Previously in trailers, the film has kept Chucky’s appearance pretty vague. The most in-depth information we’ve got is that Mark Hamill will voice the doll.
Last month, we got our first look at the film, based on the 1988 slasher flick. The trailer shows a more high-tech Chucky doll that wrecks havoc. However, the trailer doesn’t give a full view of the doll, leaving viewers begging to see what the new version will actually look like.
Now, in an announcement for an upcoming trailer for the horror movie, filmmakers have finally revealed the creepy Buddi doll’s full appearance. We’ll have to wait until Friday to see him in action, but you can check out the photo below.

I said it once and I’ll say it again. This shit is NOT MY CHUCKY.

It producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith are set to produce the movie. Lars Klevberg will direct the film and Tyler Burton Smith will write the script.
Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation) and Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out) portray mother and son Karen and Andy Barclay respectively. Karen gives Andy a toy doll for his birthday and is unaware of its sinister nature.
To build even more suspense, the franchise launched of a cartoon-centric creepy toy website and blood-soaked holiday e-cards and wallpapers. There’s been tons of buzz about the film, especially after the creator of the original film was upset about the reboot in general.
Also in other news about the film, we were recently given a terrifying tease of the flick with an elevator promotion that gave us nightmares.
Child’s Play hits theaters June 21, and you can check out the first trailer below.
