Annabelle sequel officially titled Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation David F. Sandberg

The movie we've been referring to as ANNABELLE 2 will not have that title when it reaches theatres this summer. At the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. announced that the sequel to 2014's possessed doll movie ANNABELLE isn't going the number route, but will have a subtitle to set it apart from its predecessor. The sequel's title is ANNABELLE: CREATION.

"CREATION" makes it sound like this is actually a prequel to ANNABELLE, which was itself a prequel to (/ spin-off from) THE CONJURING.

Directed by LIGHTS OUT's David F. Sandberg from a script by ANNABELLE writer Gary Dauberman, ANNABELLE: CREATION stars Miranda Otto, Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, and Tayler Buck. The story centers on 

a dollmaker and his wife whose daughter tragically dies. Twenty years later they decide to open their home to a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage. When the dollmaker's possessed creation Annabelle sets her sights on the children, it turns their shelter into a storm of horror.

ANNABELLE: CREATION is scheduled to be released on August 11th.
