Your worst childhood nightmare ‘Chucky’ is getting an all-new reboot in 2019 and movie franchise fans think killing the demented doll is easier than ever.
Yes, the popular evil doll from the ’80s horror movie Child’s Play is making a comeback in what seems like a Black Mirror-ish trailer dropped on Friday.
The newest installment stars Bryan Tyree Henry, Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Tim Matheson and takes you back to the horror days where the doll wrecks havoc, except, it is now a hi-tech doll powered by artificial intelligence. The trailer opens with Andy (Gabriel Bateman) unwrapping a gift from his mother (Aubrey Plaza) when the doll promptly takes a laser scan of him and the usual follows.
While the OG showed us a dying murderer putting his soul in Chucky, which then goes on a killing spree on unsuspecting victims – the modern doll seemingly develops evil tendencies following a defect in Chucky’s programming code.
Enough talk, here’s the trailer:

The immediate response to the trailer, however, was – it’s much easier to stop the robotic doll. From simply kicking it to switching the WiFi off – fans came up with creative suggestions to put an end to this tiny monster. Because, you know, modern problems require modern solutions.
If Chucky the doll tried to attack me I would simply kick him away

I would throw a laundry basket over him and then put a heavy stone on top of it. Then simply walk away. Not my problem anymore

Is he strong at all he seems relatively easy to subdue or destroy.

He supposedly has the strength of a full-grown man. But, you know, so do I.

I’d drop a bucket on him and put a brick on top. Then I’d get a cage, toss him in and charge people $20 each to see him.

But was it that easy to kill Chucky?
People have no respect for the brutality Chucky has displayed in the original series. He kills an old woman with a ruler

he’s magic dude

Chucky would drive that knife into your foot with lightning quickness and your kick would become a MURDER TRAP

Many wondered what a grown-up was doing with a doll anyway in 2019.
Is anyone shocked that Chucky is still a doll and isn’t like an app or something. Do kids still play with dolls?

1. That boy is too old for a doll
2. Maximum overdrive meets Child’s play is a better title
3. Same producers as IT so I’ll watch it anyway pic.twitter.com/kDyQDh6Kvf

It looks like Chucky is A.I gone evil in the reboot and I think that’s a way better angle in 2019 than that supernatural, dark magic, possessed shit https://t.co/bsD7kaFYXl
