Annabelle has been living the good life during the pandemic.
To celebrate National Doll Day at the beginning of August, Warner Bros. gave an update on the scary star from the “Conjuring” franchise.
In the video, the Annabelle doll sits motionless on a chair at the studio offices as the days go by.
Suddenly, though, she disappears and the camera turns to find she’s moved to another part of the room.
From there, Annabelle is scene in a number of difference situations, including using a Ouija board and sitting on a studio golf cart outside with a mask on.
In the end, the video ominously promises, “To be continued.”
However, in a new video on Friday, Tony Sperra, son-in-law of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, confirmed that the doll is, in fact, still in her glass enclosure, despite rumours that she’d escaped.
“I’m here to tell you something, I don’t know if you want to hear this or not, but Annabelle did not escape,” Sperra said. “Annabelle’s alive — well, I shouldn’t say alive — Annabelle’s here, in all her infamous glory. She never left the museum.”
He continued: “Annabelle’s here. She didn’t go anywhere. She didn’t take a trip. She didn’t fly first class and she didn’t go out to visit her boyfriend,” he added. “So here she is. Let’s put the rumours to rest, guys. I appreciate all the concern. I’d be concerned if Annabelle really did leave because she’s nothing to play with.”
Annabelle was last seen on-screen in the 2019 sequel “Annabelle Comes Home”.
