‘Chucky’ Creator Don Mancini Teases M3GAN Killer Dolls Crossover

Who is ready for two killer dolls to cross paths? Well, Don Mancini is. The Chucky creator recently teased that his killer doll may come face-to-face with M3GAN in a potential crossover. “I would say, stay tuned,” said Mancini (via Variety).

When M3GAN was released in theatres earlier this year, the two dolls had an online spat.


On X (previously known as Twitter), M3GAN replied to a comment from a user who said they weren’t going to watch her movie out of loyalty towards Chucky.

Chucky responded by calling himself the ‘Original Gangster’ and flexed his kill count when M3GAN called him a boomer, a viral internet slang phrase used to call out or dismiss people of an older generation.

During M3GAN’s Reddit Ask Me Anything, the doll was asked if she could defeat Chucky and Anabelle from The Conjuring Universe. She replied, “Annabelle never moves, so I wouldn’t have to really lift a finger against her and Chucky is old, so I’d just go right for his pacemaker.”

Being old and not being the only icon of the killer doll horror genre is something the doll struggled with in the latest season of Chucky.

“He really has to contend with legitimate new contenders to the throne like M3GAN and Annabelle,” Mancini said. “He has to deal with that place for himself in the pop culture world and that’s how we really touch the ground with Chucky. We give this off-the-wall character a crisis that has the sting of real pain and real life. But it just makes him angrier and you know what happens when Chucky gets angry.”

Chucky was first introduced in the 1988 Indie film Child’s Play. He later spawned eight more full-length feature films and two short films. Now, Chucky is on his third season on SyFy. Chucky dominated the killer doll horror genre and was an icon for over 26 years until Annabelle came into the picture in 2014. M3GAN joined in 2022.

A crossover is particularly exciting for fans of the genre, though how and when that takes place remains to be seen. M3GAN could potentially make a cameo in future seasons of Chucky, or better yet, the two can have a showdown in a Chucky vs M3GAN movie. Either way, their real-life interaction would be an iconic moment in horror.
