New Line Cinema has just dropped the first official trailer for the upcoming ANNABELLE COMES HOME, the latest CONURING spin-off in the James Wan cinematic universe. Not only does the first footage look pretty darn creepy, but it also shows off the key tie-in to the Wan franchise: it’s Annabelle versus the Warrens.

ANNABELLE COMES HOME is the third installment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful ANNABELLE films starring the infamous sinister doll from the CONJURING universe. Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of the ANNABELLE films, IT and THE NUN, makes his directorial debut on the film, which is produced by Peter Safran (AQUAMAN), who has produced all the films in the CONJURING franchise, and CONJURING universe creator James Wan (AQUAMAN).

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing.  But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.

The film stars McKenna Grace (TV’s THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, GIFTED, CAPTAIN MARVEL) as Judy; Madison Iseman (JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, GOOSEBUMPS 2: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (TV’s YOUTH AND CONSEQUENCES and SUPERNATURAL) as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson (AQUAMAN, THE CONJURING, and INSIDIOUS films) and Vera Farmiga (THE CONJURING films, upcoming GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS TV’s BATES MOTEL) reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Dauberman directed the film from a screenplay he wrote, from a story by Dauberman & Wan.  Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Michelle Morrissey and Judson Scott served as executive producers.

Dauberman’s behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Michael Burgess (upcoming “The Curse of La Llorona”), production designer Jennifer Spence (ANNABELLE: CREATION, THE NUN), editor Kirk Morri (AQUAMAN) and costume designer Leah Butler (ANNABELLE: CREATION).  The music is by Joseph Bishara (THE CONJURING films).

New Line Cinema presents, an Atomic Monster/Peter Safran Production, ANNABELLE COMES HOME.  The film is set to open in theatres and IMAX on June 28, 2019 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
