Annabelle Comes Home will debut this summer as the third movie in the series and the seventh in the overall Conjuring universe (after The Curse of La Llorona debuts later this month at least). We recently received the first trailer for the new sequel and we now have some additional information on the film from producer Peter Safran, as reported by EW.

With respect to the plot of the third Annabelle movie, Safran added to what we already knew about the story and revealed the following.


If you figured that the Warrens’ artifact room might play a bigger role in future Conjuring movies, you may be on to something. The producer also shared the following about what the future may hold with respect to spinoffs and other films.


In particular, it looks like a sequel to The Nun is coming next, according to additional comments made by Safran to EW, where it is revealed that the team has a story ready and it should be the next to be written.


Franchise regulars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will reprise their roles of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in Annabelle Comes Home. After the Annabelle doll is brought to their Artifacts Room in an effort to keep it from causing any more harm, it soon sets its sights on their daughter, Judy, forcing her to team up with her babysitter and her best friend to go up against its evil.

Wilson and Farmiga previously appeared in both The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2. Judy will be played by Mckenna Grace (The Haunting of Hill House) with Madison Iseman and Katie Sarife also starring. Gary Dauberman wrote the script and will also be making his directorial debut with this project. The film scheduled to hit theaters on June 28th, 2019.
