I’m not sure why a sequel to Annabelle was ever made because it was extremely sloppy and far from anything good in comparison to The Conjuring franchise. But since it was extremely successful in its theatrical run, which scared up nearly $257 million at the worldwide box office during its run in theaters. I guess Annabelle 2 makes perfect sense to continue to the story of this little creepy possessed doll.
In Annabelle 2, several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
The sequel was directed by David F. Sandberg starring Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto.
Annabelle 2 hits theaters on May 19, 2017.
