Meet the Warrens' real life daughter in an 'Annabelle Comes Home' featurette
Although they’re memorably played onscreen by stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, Ed and Lorraine Warren were real life paranormal investigators. That’s a fact that is celebrated today in a new behind the scenes featurette from Warner Brothers Pictures and New Line Cinema upcoming Annabelle Comes Home, which features insight from the couple’s daughter, Judy Spera. Check out “Growing Up Warren” in the player below!
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target — the Warrens’ ten year old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
“Annabelle Comes Home” stars McKenna Grace (“The Haunting of Hill House,” “Gifted”) as Judy, Madison Iseman (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen, and Katie Sarife (“Youth and Consequences,” “Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela.
Gary Dauberman, who makes his directorial debut with “Annabelle Comes Home,” also wrote the screenplay from a story by James Wan & himself. Executive producers include Michael Clear and Michelle Morrissey. Dauberman’s behind-the- scenes team includes director of photography Michael Burgess (“The Curse of La Llorona”), production designer Jennifer Spence (“Annabelle Creation,” “The Nun”), and costume designer Leah Butler (“Annabelle Creation”).
From New Line Cinema, Annabelle Comes Home is set to open in theaters July 3, 2019 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
