Video: Chucky is back on the big screen and your first look is here.
The upcoming Child's Play reboot has been the subject of heavy backlash ever since it first announced, with much of the hostility stemming from the fact that franchise creator Don Mancini already had plans to continue in the original continuity of the series with an upcoming TV show.
The trailer suggests Chucky is an evil, violent being that is out for blood. Jennifer Tilly, who voiced Chucky's bride Tiffany Valentine, will not be returning to the role.
"New "Chucky" movie?" Tilly wrote Friday on Twitter. "Ummm...no. Tiffany and I are gonna sit this one out.#NotmyChucky" Even better, she shared a photo of herself holding the iconic doll, which you can see at the bottom.More news: M&S wants you to taste their 'Love Sausage' this Valentine's Day

The move to make Chucky a smart toy is a clever way to update the franchise, and gives the film more opportunity for creative kills and inventive set pieces.
The original film was released in 1988 and spawned multiple sequels. "They asked David Kirschner and I if we wanted to be executive producers".
"Obviously my feelings were hurt", Mancini said about the new Child's Play. Ya know, I had just done two movies... forgive me if I sound defensive, (they) were both at 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Child's Play is scheduled for release on June 21, 2019.
