Seed of Chucky

Trivia: A disclaimer had to be added to some of the trailers and commercials clarifying that "Britney Spears does not appear in this movie," due to a gag in which a lookalike was cast to portray Spears and is killed by Chucky. Spears' management team was worried her fans might go see the movie expecting her to be in it in a larger role, only to be disappointed that it was a lookalike in a short 30-second scene, so they asked the producers to add the disclaimer.


Trivia: Chucky's gender-confused child is called either "Glen" or "Glenda" depending on who is addressing him. This is a reference to the docudrama "Glen or Glenda" directed by Ed Wood about cross-dressing and human sexuality. Wood was famously a cross-dresser.


Trivia: Redman's part was written for Quentin Tarantino, who turned down the role as he wasn't interested in acting in a major part. (He similarly turned down major roles in a number of notable films in the 2000's).


Trivia: The film was being produced by Focus Features. However, as Focus primarily worked in more artsy films at the time, they ended up purchasing and reviving fellow production company "Rogue Pictures" (which had been dropped four years earlier by Universal) to release this film and other similar works. "Seed of Chucky" ended up actually being the second film release under this revived banner, with the first being the American release of the comedy "Shaun of the Dead."


Trivia: The gag in which the Tiffany doll accidentally grabs the puppeteer's groin was a bit of an inside joke. During production of "Bride of Chucky", one of the puppeteers kept having the Chucky doll grab Jennifer Tilly's boobs as a joke during takes. (And there is indeed a few shots where this can be seen in the final film.) As a bit of a goofy bid of "vengeance", director Don Mancini added a scene into this film where a puppeteer is similarly grabbed in the groin.


Trivia: Cult director John Waters is a massive fan of the Chucky movies - especially Bride of Chucky. He's such a big fan, he even owns a life-sized replica of the Chucky doll, which he keeps in his bathroom on display. As a thank-you from creator Don Mancini, the part of "Pete Peters" the paparazzi was written especially for him. Waters gladly accepted the role.


Trivia: The last Chucky/Child's Play movie to be released in theaters. The two more recent films (Curse of Chucky and Cult of Chucky) were released direct-to-video and Netflix.


Trivia: The directorial debut of series creator Don Mancini. Mancini had written or co-written the four prior films. Mancini has continued to serve as series director since this film's release, also solo writing and directing the two subsequent entries as well.


Continuity mistake: During the Sound Stage scene, Chucky and Tiffany kill the puppeteer by chopping his head off with wire. When the blood splatters all over Tiffany's and Chucky's faces, Tiffany's right eye is covered in blood. In the next shot there is no sign of blood in the eye at all.

More quotes from Seed of Chucky

Question: Why does Glen look like a zombie, if Chucky and Tiffany are normal?

Answer: Have you ever SEEN demon doll DNA? It's creepy! Not at all like your 'normal' DNA. Now, if you have a Barbie and Ken doll having a kid, you'd get something nice like a P.J. Doll. You mix evil, twisted, Chucky with psychopathic Tiffany and all bets are off, baby-wise. I'm surprised that Glen turned out as well as he did! And with a Cockney accent?
