Mark Hamill has revealed that he will voice Chucky in the forthcoming remake of the 1988 cult classic ‘Child’s Play.’
The actor made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday in a short video.
“If you’re wondering who’s going to voice Chucky in the new 'Child’s Play'... You’re looking at him,” he says in the clip.
“I can’t wait to bring such an iconic character to life, and present him in a way you’ve never seen before.
“'Child’s Play,’ this summer. We’re going to have some fun.”
Hamill adds with a piercing stare at the camera: “And remember, he’s more than just a toy... He’s your best friend.”
‘Child’s Play,’ set to be released in June, stars Aubrey Plaza as Karen Barclay, a mother who gives her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a toy doll named Chucky — which turns out to be much creepier than expected.
In the 1988 version, Catherine Hicks plays Karen Barclay, while the role of Andy went to Alex Vincent.
