A new behind-the-scenes preview for Child’s Play was released earlier today to share with fans a little bit of the process behind bringing Chucky to life on the big screen once again. Thankfully, as the video demonstrates, the vast majority of the killer doll's screen time is made to happen via six animatronic dolls built for the production. A CGI doll certainly would not have played well for fans of the franchise.

In addition, a new TV spot for the film was also released, showing off some new footage and plenty of Chucky. Give the latest featurette a watch above and be sure to check out the additional preview 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.
