What does Child’s Play have in common with Toy Story 4? Well, try a release date for both of these franchises’ new films, for starters. The official social media account for the upcoming remake has been having a little fun in light of this fact, releasing a new promotional image putting a very Chucky spin on the not-so-friendly competition.

The new poster shows our killer doll walking away from his latest victim, Toy Story’s Woody, warning that there’s a new sheriff in town. Check it out side-by-side with the original poster below.

In Child’s Play, a mother gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The cast includes Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Legion) as the mother, Karen, Gabriel Bateman (Light’s Out) as her son, Andy, and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Greg, a detective who will be investigating the mysterious deaths surrounding the doll. Chucky is voiced by the legendary Mark Hamill.

The film is directed by Lars Klevberg, who is known for his horror film, Polaroid, with a script penned by Quantum Break and Kung Fury 2 writer Tyler Burton Smith. KatzSmith Productions’ David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (Stephen King's It) are on board as producers with the film slated to arrive early this summer on June 21st, 2019.
