‘Annabelle: Creation’ Trailer Shows Origin of ‘The Conjuring’s’ Cursed Doll

The haunting new trailer for “Annabelle: Creation,” released on Sunday, gives an origin story to the titular cursed doll.

“Creation,” which is a prequel to 2014’s “Annabelle” — itself a prequel to the 2013 hit “The Conjuring” — takes us to the dollmaker who first created the toy that would become a demonic conduit, along with her husband. After tragically losing their own child, the couple takes in a nun and a group of girls, who can be seen being terrorized by the evil spirit in the trailer.

“The contact started small, but then it wanted permission to move into a doll so that it could be with us forever,” explains Miranda Otto in the footage.

The previous film, directed by John R. Leonetti, followed a couple that was plagued by Annabelle after welcoming the doll into their home. “Lights Out” helmer David F. Sandberg takes over directing duties for “Annabelle: Creation.”

“The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2” director James Wan returns to produce “Annabelle: Creation,” reteaming with Sandberg after working with him as a producer on “Lights Out.” The cast includes Talitha Bateman, Stephanie Sigman, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Lulu Wilson, Lou Lou Safran, Grace Fulton, Tayler Buck, Samara Lee, and Anthony LaPaglia.

“Annabelle: Creation” possesses theaters on Aug. 11. Watch the new trailer above.
