Trivia: Chucky almost always loses his right hand/arm in the third act. In Child's Play, Andy's mom shoots it off. In Child's Play 2, Chucky tears it off to escape from a bar. In Child's Play 3, Andy cuts it off with a knife. In Seed of Chucky, his arms are cut off with an ax before he is beheaded. And in Cult of Chucky, one of the three Chucky's loses his right arm shortly before the climax. Of the seven films, five have Chucky losing either his right hand or entire right arm in the final thirty minutes.

Trivia: The film was announced, written, shot, edited and released less than nine months after the release of "Child's Play 2." The studio was worried about the series not lasting, and wanted to rush out a third movie as quick as possible to cash in on the success of the original. Series creator and lead writer Don Mancini (who wrote or co-wrote every single film and directed entries 5-7) has said "Child's Play 3" is his least favorite of the series, as he felt it was pushed out too quickly, and he didn't have the time to write a script he found satisfactory.

Trivia: Minor Spoilers for "Cult of Chucky." Series creator Don Mancini's original idea for "Child's Play 3" included multiple Chuckies. When Chucky's blood is accidentally mixed into the molten plastic, every single doll the assembly line produced was going to be possessed by Chucky's spirit. The idea was dropped for time and budgetary reasons, so only the first doll produced had his soul inside of it. Mancini always loved the idea, and was later able to implement a variation of it in the seventh film, "Cult of Chucky." (Although in that film, Chucky is able to possess multiple hosts at the same time thanks to a spell that more-or-less copy/pastes his spirit).

Answer: The film makers wanted to make Andy older in the film so he could have a love interest and be in military school. At the time Alex was only 9, but they wanted Andy to be 16. So they recast the part.

Answer: To add to the other answer, the writers and producers felt that after two movies they had gone as far with child Andy as they possibly could have. They felt it would be too redundant to have a third film with Andy as a kid being pursued by Chucky. So they set this film years later when Andy was a teenager.

Question: At the beginning of the movie, the entire Good Guy factory is completely covered in dust and cobwebs because of not being used in eight years. What caused the factory to close for such a long time? Nobody believed Andy when he said that his Good Guy doll was possessed by Chucky. And even though Andy said Chucky was responsible for so many murders in his doll form, people most likely wrote it off as a child's overactive imagination and that wouldn't be enough to close down the factory.

Answer: The public believes that the Good Guy doll that committed the murders had simply malfunctioned, which caused great negative publicity for the company. The public does not believe Andy or his mother's claims that the doll was possessed by a serial killer and was actually alive. In Child's Play 2 the company finds and reassembles the doll to prove to shareholders that the Good Guy doll is safe. This backfires and the doll is re-possessed, which leads to additional murders in that film crippling the company for 8 years.

Question: When Chucky is loading the guns with real ammo instead of paint, why would a military school store or even use live rounds?

Answer: Military schools usually have gun ranges, so they would have live ammunition for that.
