from the main storyline of the first film, the doll is a key part of
that film's prologue and comes into play briefly in the second half.

wife, Mia – a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding
dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle
doesn’t last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by
members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled
blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have
conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to
the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.
