Following today’s WonderCon panel with director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out), we have our first full trailer for the upcoming prequel to 2014’s Annabelle. The fourth film in the newly designated “Conjuring Universe”, Annabelle: Creation focuses on the origin of the now iconic Annabelle doll.
The trailer does a great job setting the mood and laying out the basic plot details without revealing too much from the film itself. While the first Annabelle film was generally disliked, I enjoyed it for what it was and am excited to see what David F. Sandberg can bring to the series. Check out the synopsis, trailer and poster below.
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.
Annabelle:Creation will be released on August 11, 2017.
