Star Wars icon Mark Hamill has added another high profile voice role to his resume. The actor made the announcement via a prerecorded appearance for WonderCon that he will be voicing Chucky in the theatrical Child’s Play reboot.
The announcement appeared on Hamill’s official Twitter shortly afterward.
Science Fiction icon Mark Hamill is allegedly back in negotiations to appear in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3. It was widely reported last year that Hamill had talks with director James Gunn, but what role they had discussed remained under wraps.
Of course, Gunn was famously fired by Disney last year over controversial tweets made a decade previously. Gunn was re-hired earlier this month, but no major casting news came about in the interim.
Now the site We Got This Covered is reporting that Hamill may in fact be in talks to play Rocket Raccoon’s creator. This could easily be an original character, or a take on secondary or tertiary characters from the Marvel Universe.
Luke Skywalker himself speaks to The Associated Press about the official title of The Last Jedi for Star Wars Epiosode VIII. Mark is his usual jovial, self deprecating self as he also brings up what it’s like to keep secrets from fans.
Mark Hamill has never been one to pass up a good opportunity to have a little fun affectionately trolling fans. In 2016 the Star Wars icon famously teased an exclusive behind the scenes look at Luke’s training of Rey from Episode VIII. When the reveal finally came, it was clear that the picture was a punchline to a joke.
Last week, a tweet about “Episode VIII” was made by the page for Hamill’s TV show Pop Culture Quest.
