‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Officially Not Part Of ‘The Conjuring Universe’

The debate ends as director Michael Chaves confirms that The Curse of La Llorona was never officially part of The Conjuring Universe.

Although the film features connections to the franchise, it was not intended as a main entry. When speaking with Entertainment Weekly in celebration of The Conjuring‘s 10th anniversary, Chaves explained that the appearance of Annabelle and Tony Amendola reprising his role as Father Perez were meant as an Easter Egg.

“There’s so much debate about it and I think I’ve played coy in the past. The idea was that [the Annabelle cameo] was going to be this little hidden thing that you were going to discover as you watch the movie. One of the reasons that it couldn’t formally be a part of the Conjuring Universe is it didn’t include one of the key producers, Peter Safran. The Conjuring is his baby, him and James, and they are still the two core producers on it.”

Fans can now enjoy the movie while understanding its distinction from the larger Conjuring narrative. Do you agree with this? Let us know!
