The deadly doll has received a technological update and a new face, and a video clip you can see past the jump provides a peek at how it was created.

Chucky was created for the new CHILD’S PLAY, which opens June 21 from Orion Pictures, by the MastersFX company. Lars Klevberg directed from a script by Tyler Burton Smith, with Aubrey Plaza as Karen, the single mom who buys the dangerous toy, Gabriel Bateman as her son Andy, Brian Tyree Henry as the detective investigating the mayhem and Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky.
