First up is director Lars Klevberg‘s CHILD’S PLAY reboot on June 21, 2019 followed by Gary Dauberman‘s third ANNABELLE installment for The Conjuring franchise set for a theatrical playdate of July 3, 2019. Today, Still Photographer Justin Lubin has revealed via his Instagram account that production has officially wrapped on ANNABELLE 3.
While the upcoming film has yet to announce its official title, we do know that the sequel to 2017’s ANNABELLE: CREATION will once again center on the demonic doll, only this time she’ll already be under the watchful eyes of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Starring McKenna Grace as Judy Warren, daughter of the paranormal investigator couple, ANNABELLE 3 finds Judy and two of her teen babysitters (Madison Iseman and Katie Sarife) being terrorized by the possessed playpal, after it escapes the confines of the family artifact room.
