The third Annabelle movie chronicles the spooky events that take place after alleged supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the titular devil-doll back to their house. As such, the horror sequel’s official title, announced Friday via a short video, makes terrifyingly perfect sense.
Annabelle Comes Home.
The film once again stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the Warrens, and adds McKenna Grace as their young daughter, Judy. It’s written and directed by first-time filmmaker Gary Dauberman, who penned the first two Annabelle movies.
“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,” Dauberman said 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.”
“Annabelle basically activates all the other haunted artifacts in that room,” said James Wan, a producer on the film. “So, it’s basically A Night at the Museum, with Annabelle!”
Annabelle Comes Home hits theaters June 28. Watch the title announcement video above.
