Warner Bros. Pictures has the answer for anyone wondering what’s going on in their lots during the COVID-19 production disruptions. The studio released a short film entitled “Annabelle in Quarantine,” which features everyone’s favorite demon-inhabited mischief maker getting into all sorts of trouble on the vacant Burbank lot.
Deadline reports that the short film was filmed safely by New Line employees: “Two of the New Line employees shot the movie on their iPhone (yes, in face masks with social distancing), while a third directed remotely by FaceTime.” Warner Bros. employees have been enjoying the film internally, and the video ended up in the company newsletter. The studio shared it with fans this afternoon on their official YouTube channel. The clip’s title wishes fans a, “Happy National Doll Day!”
If the film itself doesn’t remind fans that these are unusual times on one of the most prolific movie studios in the world’s headquarters, the final slide of the clip advertises Annabelle Comes Home… a movie that debuted in theaters on June 26th 2019. Given the fact that The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It has been pushed all the way to 2021, there isn’t much else that Warner Bros. can be hyping at this time.
