Mark Hamill is about to give children nightmares.
The Star Wars actor has signed on to provide the voice of Chucky, which still gives adults in their twenties and thirties the chills.
Orion Pictures is rebooting the series about the evil doll who starred as the main character of the Child’s Play slasher films which first came out in 1988.
The last film in the series was released in 2017, but the Lars Klevberg-directed remake is not expected to be connected in any way.
Hamill will lend his voice to the doll that is given as a gift to Andy, played by Gabriel Bateman, by this single mother played by Aubrey Plaza.
“We feel incredibly lucky to have an icon creating a new take on an iconic character,” producer David Katzenberg said in a statement. “Mark is a gifted actor and celebrated vocal performer, and he’s approached this challenge with incredible energy and commitment.”
This will not be the first time that the 67-year-old voices Chucky as he previously lent his pipes during an episode of Robot Chicken where the sinister toy appeared.
Child’s Play opens on June 21. We’re already terrified.
