Annabelle 2 announcement trailer goes back to the beginning
Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed the official announcement trailer for Annabelle 2, the follow-up to the 2014 spin-off of The Conjuring. Check it out in the player below!
The film’s story dials it back from the first Annabelle feature, itself a prequel to The Conjuring, and centers on a dollmaker and his wife whose daughter tragically dies. Twenty years later they decide to open their home to a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage. When the dollmaker’s possessed creation Annabelle sets her sights on the children, it turns their shelter into a storm of horror. Strangely enough this goes against the backstory told in the opening scene of The Conjuring, which introduced Annabelle to the world.
Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, I, Frankenstein) stars in the film alongside Stephanie Sigman (SPECTRE, War on Everyone)
The script is by Gary Dauberman (Annabelle), with David Sandberg (Lights Out) directing and The Conjuring‘s James Wan and Peter Safran producing. The first Annabelle made over $256 million worldwide in 2014.
Annabelle 2 will doll itself up in theaters on May 19, 2017.
