ANABELLE: CREATION, the story of the possessed doll
The first trailer of Annabelle: Creation was unveiled at Saturday’s WonderCon and has now made its way online.
Annabelle: Creation takes us back even further into the history of the possessed doll with Lights Out director David F. Sandberg bringing us the origin story of how this doll became evil and who it terrorized first.
There have been hints about what kind of spirit resides within Annabelle, but now the story of how she came to be is beginning to make sense. The daughter of a dollmaker (Anthony LaPaglia) and his wife (Miranda Otto) meets a tragic end, but a spirit shows up inside the house and wants to be placed inside the doll. Hoping to hold on to their departed daughter, they agree, but it doesn’t turn out exactly as they planned. (via Slashfilm)
"During Warner Bros' panel at today’s event, Sandberg appeared for a brief discussion of his upcoming film. A fan of director James Wan — a “modern master of horror” — Sandberg described his excitement in stepping into the world Wan had conjured with The Conjuring. “That was the fun thing, because James set up this universe so great with the first Conjuring, which I was a huge fan of,” the director said. “It has this sort of classic horror movie feel—more old school. So this was my chance to do my version of an old school horror movie.”" (Deadline)
The official synopsis for Annabelle reads:
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
The New Line Cinema trailer makes it perfectly clear that this sequel also takes place in the same universe of The Conjuring. Annabelle: Creation is written by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote Annabelle, and the film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Evil), Philippa Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Foxcatcher) and Tayler Buck.
The movie hits theaters late this summer on August 11.
