After moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother -- a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc.
The stand-ins for "Good Guy" dolls in this movie are the "Buddi" dolls. See more »
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 »

Chucky for millenials in a high tech horror romp
More of a reboot than a remake, director Lars Klevberg offers an anti corporate / anti consumerist take on the 1988 original, in a story which writer Tyler Burton Smith says was heavily inspired by Spielberg's E.T. A family are terrorised by a malevolent high tech Buddi doll called Chucky (voiced by Luke Skywalker himself Mark Hamill), who is basically an Alexa device gone rogue, killing off characters and the family cat in various gory ways before going berserk on shoppers in a department store. It's a very self aware and smug take on the killer doll concept that downplays the horror in favour of humour and satire. The movie was promoted with a poster campaign that featured Chucky killing off characters from the Toy Story franchise, as it was released at the same time with Toy Story 4.
