Some Scars for The Nun II Trailer Brings the Demon Nun Back

Bonnie Aarons is back as Demon Valak in the first trailer for The Nun II. While this post may only be the second nun movie, it is the ninth overall movie in the Conjuring series, not including the canonical short films that won the My Annabelle Creation Contest. A trailer for the new film was first shown at CinemaCon 2023, but has now been made available to the public. You can check it out below if you dare.

The trailer shows the first shots of a returning Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, who was introduced in the previous nun movie. At the end of this film, Irene was able to send Valak back to hell by spitting in his face (no, seriously). Obviously, this did not work out, at least in the long run, so now Sister Irene has to cope with even more demonic activities with the help of some new friends.

Who else plays in the Nun 2

In addition to Aarons and Farmiga, there will be another actor who repeats his role from an earlier episode. This actor will be Jonas Bloquet as Frenchie, who, as we learn at the end of the previous nuns film, is Maurice Theriault, a victim of the possession presented in the very first Conjuring film, albeit played by another actor.

Another performer will join the Conjuring universe for the first time: Storm Reid, who is best known for her work in Europhia as Gia Bennett and A Wrinkle in Time as Meg Murry. Reid also recently played Riley Abel in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. The character she plays in The Nun II is still unknown, which suggests that it’s probably quite a spoiler, whatever her role may be.

Another new member of the cast is Katelyn Rose Downey, who is a relative newcomer to the world of film and television acting. Previously, she played the role of Violet in Hulu’s The Princess, the younger sister of Joey King’s title character. Later, she will also appear in the television series Clean Sweep as Caitlin Mohan. In this film, she will play Sophie, a bullied girl at a Catholic school, whose only allies are Frenchie and her older sisters.

Anna Popplewell will play Sophie’s older sister. Her name is Marcella and she is a teacher at her sister’s school, who was described in an early casting call rather as a “true mother figure”. Popplewell is best known for playing Susan Pevensie or Queen Susan the Gentle in Disney’s Three Chronicles of Narnia films. You may know other roles from our Lady Lola / Lola Narcisse in Reign and Anna Sackville-Bagg in The Little Vampire.

Which elements from the summoning universe the Nun 2 must contain

A universe is rarely born, since it is a complex creation with several moving parts that need to be pulled together into a solidified masterpiece. However, 2013 marked the meeting of a new universe in the realm of horror. The incantation and the subsequent films in the same universe were so successful that some were made to think about the secret of the franchise’s success.

The conjuring universe is based on the life of two enthusiastic paranormal investigators, connected by supernatural and conjugal cords. Each film is based on the diverse experiences of the late Ed and Lorraine Warren. The current number of films within the brand is at eight, a ninth is in preparation.

A cinematic universe is as challenging to maintain as it is to develop. The creation requires care in a process that is continuously based on a solid concept. Maintenance requires building a dynamic that convinces fans to engage constantly. The conjuring universe works like a well-oiled machine that ignites new energies with each release. How does the conjuring universe do it right? And will we see what makes it work in the upcoming Now 2?

The conjuring universe is consistent

As an article in the Psychonomic Bulletin and Review notes: “Continuity on a large scale strives for viewers to remain tied to their seats and want to know what will happen next in a continuous flow.” This is formulated as simply as it is to be fulfilled. It’s not easy to keep the attention of viewers, but the Conjuring franchise does it well. How is this handled?
