Trivia

The film features narrative material relating to Andy's father and Karen's husband, details that were originally omitted from the original 1988 film, which included a deleted scene where Andy Barclay (Played by Alex Vincent) shows a framed picture of his father to Chucky, stating he died in a car crash. See more »

Goofs

In the first part of the film, Chucky mistakes Andy's name as "Andy sup" and calls him this. He starts to call him simply "Andy" after a while. Presumably, they either figured out how to change his name as one can with Siri or Alexa, or Chucky's intelligence grows enough to know to call him just "Andy." See more »

A homage but fresh
27 June 2019 | by imasmf-144-537482See all my reviews

Saw the new Child's Play tonight. At first I was like naw, not gonna see it but then I decided to give it a chance. Glad I did, I liked it. It was able to keep the flavor and fun of the original but tell the story in a new way so you don't feel you're just watching a remake. You may actually feel bad for Chucky at times so that right there tells you it's a bit different.

At first I didn't like new Andy because he's older and seemed stupid to give an older kid a doll but the doll is evolved too, with tech that even older kids can find fun. The kid who plays Andy is good as are the other kids. Mom and the detective fit the roles nice and very different from the original characters which I think was smart. If they'd tried to just copy the originals it wouldn't have worked because we'd always compare them.

I don't want to give anything away but I'll just say thanks to the Kasden cloud storage I think we may see sequels, and I'm ok with that.
