Just a couple months after the reveal of the first teaser trailer for the Child’s Play reboot we now know who voice the classic evil doll.
During Orion’s panel presentation today at WonderCon, it was announced that Disney Legend Mark Hamill would voice Chucky in the upcoming reboot.
Hamill had a message for those in attendance and on social media.
"People let me tell you 'bout my best friend…"🎶

Of course Hamill is best known as Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise. However, he is also best known to geek culture as the voice of the Joker in many different iterations of Batman films, tv series, and video games. Now, he will add Chucky to his already classic legacy.
Hamill joins an already impressive cast that includes Aubrey Plaza (Legion, Parks and Recreation), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, If Beale Street Could Talk), and Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out, American Gothic). Much like the original franchise, the reimagined Child’s Play will follow Karen (Plaza), a mother who gives her son Andy (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
