A deepwater Horizon film series that includes Disney films including Cars, The Lion King and The Princess and the Frog.
ANNOUNCED: The Hollywood Reporter is pleased to announce the premiere of a new featurette exploring the creative process behind the deepwater thriller series Annabelle: The Forbidden Siren.
The featurettes, which will be available to subscribers on Wednesday, October 17, will explore the creation of the series’ first trailer, the casting of Annabellee and the process of making a film in the wake of the devastating Deepwater Hurricane.
“We’re very grateful for the support we’ve received from the community, and I hope you can find a way to join us on this journey,” said John Singleton, CEO of The Walt Disney Company.
Annabelletes first trailer premiered in early October, following a campaign that began on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
The series is set in a dystopian future where humans have colonized and exploited deepwater ocean.
The movie follows an ordinary couple named Annie and Will, who find themselves on a boat trying to flee the disaster.
The couple has a young daughter, Annabellette.
The trailer features a short clip of the couple and the trailer for the sequel, Annibelle: Beyond the Sea.
“Annabelle” was originally meant to be an adult film, but Disney decided to adapt it into a horror movie in the aftermath of the disaster, creating a series of shorts.
“It was such a tremendous relief to be able to share this story with a larger audience,” said Annabelelle co-creator David Koeppner.
“With this series, we wanted to create a space where we can really share what it’s like to be a parent during a time of catastrophe and the loss of loved ones.”
In the film series’ opening trailer, Annie and her family are enjoying a romantic evening at the beach when Will (John C. Reilly) enters their room.
“Don’t be alarmed,” Will says to Annie.
“I am coming with you,” he says, holding a knife.
The two then embrace.
Annie tries to hide her surprise.
She then hears the doorbell ringing and looks up, only to see Will, holding his knife, entering her bedroom.
“The door is open,” he announces.
The family is startled by what they see.
The next minute, the trailer shows Annie’s bedroom filled with a large pool of blood and blood splatters.
Annie and Annabellett are on the floor and Annie is screaming, and she yells, “He’s killing me!”
The scene ends with the pair screaming in horror.
Disney will release the film in theaters in theaters and digitally on October 17.
