In Annabelle Comes Home (out June 28), Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles from the Conjuring films as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, while Mckenna Grace plays their daughter, Judy. For safety, the Warrens place the malevolent doll Annabelle in their room of haunted artifacts, but she is unleashed thanks to Katie Sarife’s Daniela — a friend of Judy’s babysitter (Madison Iseman) — who recently lost her father.

“Daniela will do whatever she can to find out whether or not there is an afterlife,” says writer and director Gary Dauberman. “Annabelle’s presence causes all these other things to come to life. Annabelle is the orchestrator of the madness.”

“I do love playing this character, I really do,” Farmiga told EW while shooting the film, prior to the real-life Lorraine Warren’s death earlier this month. “To be honest with you, in this climate of dissension and rancor and division, I love exhibiting [Ed and Lorraine’s] unity and their closeness and their togetherness. It’s something special for me.”

Dauberman was inspired to set the film at the Warrens’ house during the shoot for another Conjuring universe film, last year’s Corin Hardy-directed The Nun, which Dauberman also wrote, based on a story by himself and James Wan.

“I was over in Romania for The Nun, and just being away from my family and stuff made me very homesick,” he says. “I was like, ‘Man, I want to go home, and it would be nice on this one to bring the franchise back home, literally, into the Warrens’ house.’ So I was excited to do that. While The Nun is this sort of men-on-a-mission movie, on this one I wanted to go back to a little bit more of a traditional haunted house, but different, because the house is the Warrens’, which is so unique and unusual. It feels like some kind of ticking time bomb.”
