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.

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 (LegionParks 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.

Rising filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) is on board to direct with a screenplay was written by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury) based on the original film. David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith will produce under their KatzSmith Productions banner.
Child’s Play is set to hit theaters on June 21, 2018.
