Mark Hamill has some big shoes to fill .. well small shoes considering the fact that Chucky has toddler feet! … Although he is no stranger to voice acting, from his iconic work on Batman: the Animated Series and more. Audiences will hear the legendary actor lend his vocal talent to the voice of Chucky later this month.
Hamill recently revealed details how he became involved in the film. Check out what he had to say below!
“I got a letter from Lars. He already laid out his vision for the film, before I read it. And then they sent me this script and I thought the crucial element that was different from the original, which I love — I’m a huge fan of Brad’s (Dourif, the original voice of Chucky) interpretation — Chucky has a different origin. So it’s not the soul of a serial killer, but someone deliberately goes in and alters his operating system and takes off the safety measures.”
“I felt intimidation like I hadn’t felt since I did the Joker….I didn’t feel that kind of intimidation until it sunk in that I was doing this. I love Brad. It’s a great responsibility, so I’m anxious to see how people react because it’s not the Chucky that we all know from before.”
