The Conjuring has done much more than just put horror on top of the box office charts. The spinoff films from the original movie will now share a common thread and there is a possibility that the two demons (Annabelle and the Nun) could be featured in the next Annabelle 2 film, which has also been announced as Annabelle: Creation.
“Vintage horror fiction!”
First, the news about the Annabelle sequel. According to the IMDb, David Sandberg is directing the film for James Wan and New Line Cinema. Sandberg is perhaps best know for his Lights Out short film phenomenon that turned into a hit movie at the box office.
Furthermore, David Sandberg has also announced via his Twitter feed that Annabelle: Creation is the name of the next spinoff sequel.

The official synopsis for Annabelle: Creation is what gives us the possible link to the demon nun from The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.
“Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a Nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle,” the synopsis reads.

It appears as though the Nun that is coming to stay with the dollmaker in Annabelle: Creation will experience some terrorizing of her own and it might be that she does not defeat the evil that oppresses her. But it could also turn out to be the demon that was latched on to the Annabelle doll that possesses her, thus giving it a reason to want revenge on the Warrens and follow them from Amityville, New York all the way to Enfield, England. That could in turn give some backstory details as to why the Enfield family was first terrorized by a ghost, then by a the demon Nun.
“Atmospheric and Creepy”
If this theory pans out, then the link between Annabelle and the Nun will prove by default that the demon Nun was really after Lorraine Warren and not Janet Hodgson, as alternately explained in The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.

This could also thicken the plot for The Conjuring 3, which is supposed to take place in the 1980s.
