‘Child’s Play’ reboot adds Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky
The Child’s Play reboot has added some talent, friends of the franchise! It appears that none other than Luke Skywalker himself (a lazy reference, I know) will be voicing the doll. Pretty dope, given how fantastic Hamill is as a voice actor.
The major announcement Mark Hamill hinted at on Twitter yesterday has now been revealed: the actor will be voicing Chucky in the upcoming reboot of Child’s Play.
According to Deadline, Orion Pictures announced Hamill’s casting as Chucky during its panel at WonderCon in Anaheim today. Hamill later shared a video of the announcement to his Twitter account.
“Hello WonderCon, it’s Mark Hamill here and if you’re wondering who’s going to voice Chucky in the new Child’s Play, you’re looking at him,” Hamill announced in the video. “I can’t wait to bring such an iconic character to life and present him in a way you’ve never seen him before. Child’s Play this summer. We’re going to have some fun. And remember, he’s more than just a toy, he’s your best friend.”
