David F. Sandberg is convinced Annabelle 2 will be better than the original

Annabelle 2 David F. Sandberg

Director David F. Sandberg will be helming ANNABELLE 2 after his previous collaboration with producer James Wan, this summer's LIGHTS OUT. The CONJURING spinoff made beaucoup bucks, so of course it earned itself a sequel, but the question is this: ANNABELLE wasn't particularly great, so why watch the sequel?

Sandberg insists that the film, which will revolve around a "nun who is worried that her orphans are becoming prey to an evil entity," is going to be a major improvement on the original. Honestly, it wouldn't be too hard to do, at least from a story standpoint. We'll all have to wait and see how LIGHTS OUT pans out, but for now I'm convinced he can do it.

Here's the full quote:

I don’t think I can give too many details at this point but it’s not a continuation of the first film. That’s one of the many things that enticed me with the project, that it’s new story. Also the setting and the time period of this one is perfect for a horror movie.

The script is really good and I think that this is a sequel that will actually be better than the original. The ‘Godfather II’ of creepy doll movies as I like to call it.

ANNABELLE 2 is set to haunt theaters on May 19, 2017.

The first movie wasn't terrible...

It had this weird offset of really great imagery and spooky atmospheric scenes that were also mixed in with bland, by the numbers scenes so it felt really generic at times. I hope they kind of do a more original story with the doll. I thought we were getting a huge Blumhouse Production Universe with Annabelle, Boogyman, Insidious demon all together. We already know they all exist in the same universe.

That would be an awesome Conjuring 3 plot, but Conjuring is more about modern "true"
