Yesterday, Annabelle 2 director David F. Sandberg took to Twitter to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at him prepping the Annabelle doll for their shoot. In said tweet, he also promised that we’d be getting an announcement today.

Sandberg has proven true to his word, and the first teaser for the film has officially hit.

Check it out below!

The teaser opens in a desolate house, where Miranda Otto’s character walks in on a girl she calls Annabelle. The girl is having tea with the doll that we recognize as the iconic doll and namesake of the film. We then see Otto hold up a cross, as if she’d come in with the intent to exorcise a demon from the girl. The table shakes, and we hear eerie crunching sounds as we focus on her expressions before the image cuts to black.

On the whole, nothing in this teaser was a huge surprise. It had many of the typical horror movie tropes, and admittedly this does make me nervous that the film will be more on par with the first Annabelle film than it is with the Conjuring movies. But, this flick is being made by the director of Lights Out, so I feel an obligation to at least give it a shot.

Below is the synopsis for the film:

“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.”
