1998 Chucky and his bride really blew the world away child’s play wide open. For one thing, they didn’t name it child’s play 4. Chucky took the title and paid homage to the classic Bride of Frankenstein. Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) was the bride and ex-girlfriend of Charles Lee Ray (Brad Dourif) before he became a doll.

Tiffany used voodoo to bring Chucky back after he was destroyed child’s play 3. But Chucky killed her and also turned her into a doll. They’ve patched things up long enough to enjoy a naughty doll sex scene. Like Chucky said, he’s anatomically correct.
Chucky and Tiffany were eventually defeated, but not before Tiffany was born. Apparently, voodoo doll conception happens much quicker than the nine months it takes humans. The last shot of Chucky and his bride was the monstrous baby who attacked the cop (Lawrence Dane) who was chasing her.
The sequel to Chucky and his bride was not son of Chucky. Writer/director Don Mancini called it Seeds by Chucky to play up the child’s gender confusion. You see, even though Chucky and Tiffany were anatomically correct dolls, their baby was born without private parts, so they didn’t know if they were male or female.

Chucky and Tiffany return in the animatronic dolls used in the making of a Hollywood film about the Chucky murders. Tilly returns as herself, actress Jennifer Tilly and the voice of Tiffany. Chucky and Tiffany meet their child, who previously lived as a ventriloquist dummy, Glen.
Glen is kind and peaceful but has an evil twin who kills like their parents. The twin is Glenda. The names Glen and Glenda pay homage to the Ed Wood film Glen or Glendaabout a man who likes to dress as a woman.
Glen/Glenda didn’t just survive Seeds by Chucky, but they are human now and separated. Chucky and Tiffany got Tilly pregnant and she gave birth to twins. They used voodoo to transfer Glen and Glenda into each twin.
But the 2004 film was the last time Glen or Glenda appeared in the film chucky movies. Chucky said he had a non-binary child in season 1. Now Watson can play the twins as human teenagers. Watson himself is 21, but actors often play a few years younger.
