Everyone may be excited to see Mark Hamill in Star Wars Episode IX, but he's also voicing the killer doll Chucky in the Child's Play reboot. Hamill made his announcement last week, but only now is he remembering that he voiced the same character for a parody skit in Adult Swim's Robot Chicken.
This was Hamill's post:
This is the video of the skit:
While Hamill admits he was attempting an impression of original actor Brad Dourif's take, this could already be a hint as to what his Chucky will sound like in the reboot. Then again, I'm totally fine if they decide to let Hamill try and make an original voice of his own.
I'm also crossing my fingers that they make Hamill cameo in the movie as himself playing Charles Lee Ray a.k.a. the serial killer who transferred his soul into Chucky's doll body. While the origin of the character is supernatural in the first movie, this reboot is said to make Chucky an advanced toy robot that starts killing everyone—basically Small Soldiers, but more murder-y.
"The story follows a mother named Karen (Aubrey Plaza) who gives her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a toy doll, Chucky (Mark Hamill), though both aren't aware of its evil nature."
The Child's Play reboot stars Aubrey Plaza, Bruan Tyree Henry, and Mark Hamill, and the film is set to come out June 21.
