Is the New ‘Child’s Play’ Poster Throwing Shade at the ‘Toy Story 4’ Poster?
There are two kinds of toys. There’s the kind that loves and cherishes children and there’s the kind that runs around with knives. You can guess which one posted a picture on Twitter making fun of the other. Here’s our look at the relationship between the two upcoming movies, Child’s Play and Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4.
The ‘Child’s Play’ Twitter account posted a picture similar to the ‘Toy Story 4’ poster
The Toy Story 4 teaser poster featured sheriff Woody against a cream background. He holds his hat in one hand, tipping it off to the person behind the camera.
Following the release of Woody’s poster, the Child’s Play Twitter account posted a teaser poster. This one shared the same color scheme as the Toy Story 4 poster, but instead of Woody standing alone in the poster, it was an arm surrounded by stuffing, holding a cowboy hat. Exiting the poster is Chucky’s bloody sneaker.
“There’s a new sheriff in town. Meet your new best friend on June 21,” the caption stated.
But, don’t worry. According to Forky from Toy Story 4, “everything’s gonna be okay.”
Did the ‘Toy Story 4’ cast respond?
Naturally, fans of both movies exploded over the crossover poster. “You know what’s even crazier? That both movies have a kid named Andy,” said one Twitter user.
So far, the Toy Story 4 cast or representatives from Disney-Pixar have not responded to the Child’s Play poster.
This is not the first time feuding franchises threw shade at each other online. Wendys’ Twitter account famously roasts other fast food chains, like Burger King and McDonald’s on their social media account. Even celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey throws shade at fans and celebrities on Twitter.
Both movies will be released this summer
The trailer for Child’s Play released in April 2019 and already has over 18 million views on Youtube. Made from the producers of It, this horror movie features Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza and Star Wars actor Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky. The plot is still unclear but places a focus on technology in this remade and rebooted addition to Chucky’s story.
The trailer for Toy Story 4, also released in April 2019, has over 42 million views on Youtube. This sequel features the lighthearted story of Woody, Buzz, and Jessie as they embark on new adventures with their owner, Bonnie. Toy Story 4 will feature the same cast of actors including Tom Hanks as Woody and Tim Allen as Buzz.
Are the movies connected in any way?
The two movies are not expected to overlap in any way. However, fans still notice similarities between the toys. While one is another story about Chucky, the deranged killer doll, the other is about a group of toys who take care of their owner, Bonnie.
“John Wick 3 opening against A Dog’s Journey is even funnier than Toy Story 4 opening against the Child’s Play remake,” said one Twitter user.
One of the largest similarities being that the two toy-related movies will release on the same day.Toy Story 4 and Child’s Play premiere on June 21, 2019.
