Danny Torrance must face old terrors in the first official teaser trailer for “The Shining” sequel “Doctor Sleep.”

In the trailer, Danny (Ewan McGregor) communicates through a blackboard with someone who has similar abilities, only to be awoken to REDRUM drawn on the blackboard. It turns out that the young girl is Abra Stone, who might just be the most powerful human with shine abilities, which allows some to communicate with others through the mind.

“I only met two or three people like us,” Danny tells Abra. “They died.”

Also in the trailer, we see glimpses of “The Shining,” transporting us — and Danny — back in time. The ominous theme from “The Shining” was also featured in the teaser, adding another hint that the upcoming film will make many allusions to Stephen King’s most famous novel and Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying classic.

In the sequel to “The Shining,” Danny Torrance is in his 40s when he encounters the same demons his father did in the previous book and subsequent film adaptation. King published “Doctor Sleep” in 2013 as a sequel to his 1977 bestseller “The Shining.”

Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Zahn McClarnon, Carl Lumbly and Jacob Tremblay also star. Mike Flanagan is writing and directing.

“Doctor Sleep” will hit theaters on Nov 8.
