Wanna See How Chucky Came to Life in New ‘Child’s Play’? [VIDEO]

We’re getting closer to the release date of the newest chapter in the murderous  Chucky doll franchise Child’s Play, and while we’re still dubious as to the film’s respect to the originals (*cough* Don Mancini *cough*) we do really appreciate this new behind-the-scenes featurette.

In the new Child’s Play, Mark Hamill will play a sinister entity that has been updated to match today’s marketplace concepts of playthings. This time around, Buddi is an “Artificial Intelligence human companion” manufactured by the Kaslan Corp, the world’s leading developer of interactive tech products for home and lifestyle. When Karen (Plaza), a single mother,  gifts one of the state-of-the-art toys to her son, Andy (Bateman), playtime takes a terrifying turn.
