While the first Annabelle wasn’t great, Annabelle: Creation was a distinct improvement. I’m not sure about the title for the third film, but the newest trailer suggests that it will maintain the quality of the second. It seems to foreground the Warrens a fair bit, even though rumours suggest that they may only be at the beginning and end of the film!
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
Gary Dauberman writes and directs from a story by James Wan, and Emily Brobst, Patrick Wilson, Grace Mckenn, Vera Farmiga and Madison Iseman star. June 28th is the release date.
