This latest preview puts the spotlight on the voice work of Mark Hamill.

A short clip from the upcoming Child’s Play remake was released earlier today and this one features quite a bit more of Mark Hamill’s voice work, which we have only heard sparingly up until this point.
The footage runs about a minute in length and opens with a few shots we’ve already had a glimpse of in trailers and other promotional material, but it then shows off an extended scene in which Chucky torments Andy over various smart-connected devices. Give the clip, titled “Peekaboo,” a watch above and read on for more details on the film.
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.
