There’s a new remake of Child’s Play coming this summer, and they just released this Child’s Play (2019) Teaser Trailer as a kick off to a unique marketing campaign. The video is an announcement from the CEO of Kaslan Corporation, teasing their new interactive toy “Buddi” that will be launched on Friday, February 8, 2019. So, apparently, there will be another trailer to watch on Friday. It could be a “real” trailer for the movie, but it seems more likely to be another Kaslan Corp video actually introducing the fictitious Buddi doll in detail.
For more information, you can check out their viral marketing websites, KaslanCorp.com and BestBuddi.com. Kaslan is depicted as a technology company with products like drones and smart home devices. It seems like in this remake of Child’s Play, Chucky may just be a high-tech robotic toy that goes haywire, rather than anything supernatural with a serial killer’s soul possessing a doll’s soul like in the original film from 1988.
