Over a month ago, we reported on an interesting Tweet sent out by Don Mancini, the man who launched the Child’s Play franchise with Tom Holland back in 1988; Mancini, who recently wrapped filming on the 7th installment, Cult of Chucky, sent a pic of Chucky & Tiffany progeny Glen/Glenda. The image included no text, but it was enough to get us hypothesizing: Was Mancini telling us that “the Seed” (voiced by Billy Boyd) would be back when Cult arrives sometime in October?

Well, another Tweet from Mancini that just hit about an hour ago is about as close to a confirmation as we’re likely to get:

HUGE THANKS TO @BillyBoydActor FOR GIVING GLEN/GLENDA HIS/HER BEAUTIFUL HEART
While Boyd isn’t listed on Cult if Chucky’s IMDB page (yet), I check the actor’s personal bio: Today isn’t Boyd’s birthday or anything, so this hardly seems like a random compliment. I have a feeling the trailer is about to drop any minute, and this is Mancini giving us a taste of what’s to come. Obviously, I’m becoming more excited about this film every week!
Check out the announcement teaser for Cult of Chucky, along with the synopsis. After that, we’ve got the trailer and synopsis for Seed of Chucky, the film that introduced Glen/Glenda back in 2004.
Official Synopsis: “Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
Official Synopsis: Gentle Glen (Billy Boyd) is a ventriloquist’s dummy, the offspring of evil doll Chucky (Brad Dourif) and his doll bride (Jennifer Tilly), both of whom are now deceased. When the orphaned Glen hears that a film is being made about his parents, he goes to Hollywood and resurrects them in an attempt to get to know them better. He is horrified when Chucky and his lover embark on a new killing spree, and Chucky is equally horrified that his son has no taste for evil.
