We’re feeling the pre-Halloween hype, and SDCC is deliver for us in the form of new horror movie details! The third installment to the Annabelle series is on the way, and we’ve got our first hint at what it will be like.
James Wan (Conjuring, AnnabelleI), the producer and writer Gary Dauberman spoke at New Line Cinema’s second annual ScareDiego presentation at San Diego Comic Con and spilled the deets.
“I’m still finalizing the script, but 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,” said Dauberman (via Entertainment Weekly). “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 set-up.”
Wan then provided a more stripped down visual of what we should expect,
“Annabelle basically activates all the other haunted artifacts in that room. So, it’s basically A Night at the Museum, with Annabelle!”
I don’t even know what to say about that. I mean, Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom was A Night at the Museum but with dinosaurs and that worked.
Annabelle 3 is scheduled for a July 3, 2019 release by New Line Cinema.
