James Wan has shared the first look of the latest movie of Annabelle, series, the demonic doll placed in an artefact room on his Instagram account.
The producer of the film, Wan finds the doll on a shelf in the artefact room of Ed and Lorraine Warren, the real-life paranormal investigators portrayed in the Conjuring film series by actors Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. The two actors are all set to reprise their roles in Annabelle Comes Home.
Wan has even hinted in the caption that this time the doll wouldn’t just have cameos but this film will be completely centred on it. He also announced the release date of the horror film.
“OK, maybe she has snuck cameos in my other recent films (which I won’t confirm or deny), BUT… she’ll very definitely be up front and center on this one! The real next chapter of THE CONJURING Universe. On June 28th #AnnabelleComesHome Directed by Gary Dauberman,” he wrote.
Gary Dauberman is making his directorial debut with this film. He served as a screenwriter for The Conjuring Universe spin-off horror films Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation and The Nun.
The star cast includes Mckenna Grace and the Warrens’ daughter, Judy.
Annabelle Comes Home is all set to release on June 28, this year in four languages–English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
The movie chronicles the spooky events that take place after the Warrens bring the devil-doll back to their house.
“It really picks up with the Warrens bringing Annabelle to the place where it can really no longer wreak havoc, which is their artifact room,” Entertainment Weekly cited Dauberman speaking at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“But, of course, it turns out she can also wreak havoc there. And she really awakens the evil within that room and they target the Warrens’ 10-year-old daughter, Judy. So, that’s the setup,” he added.
“Annabelle basically activates all the other haunted artefacts in that room. So, it’s basically A Night at the Museum, with Annabelle,” said Wan.
