The Chucky saga has become increasingly twisted — in every sense — since Brad Dourif’s dying serial killer Charles Lee Ray spirited his consciousness into a doll way back in 1988’s Child’s Play. Thirty years, and many onscreen slayings later, there are now two upcoming Chucky projects — a remake of the original film (out June 21) starring Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gabriel Bateman and a Chucky TV show which Child’s Play cowriter and longtime franchise architect Don Mancini is developing for SYFY.
Confused? Maybe you should seek further clarification and edification by watching a new animated video, The Evolution of Chucky, from the YouTube channel Tell It Animated, which has previously offered historical overviews of The Hulk, The Predator, and Chucky’s fellow horror icon Michael Myers, among other subjects.
Watch that new video above.
