MGM has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming animated film The Addams Family.
The teaser offers a first look at the humble beginnings of Morticia, Gomez, and the rest of the kooky family, and their new home.
Here is the official synopsis for the film.
“Get ready to snap your fingers! The Addams Family is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block. Funny, outlandish, and completely iconic, the Addams Family redefines what it means to be a good neighbor.”
The film features a cast so good, it could and should have been a live-action project. Featuring the talents of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll with Bette Midler and Allison Janney.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan with executive producers Kevin Miserocchi, Andrew Mittman, and Joe Earley. Gail Berman, Conrad Vernon, Alex Schwartz, and Alison O’Brien are also producers on the film.
The Addams Family originated as a single-panel cartoon by Charles Addams. Due to the popularity of the cartoon, The Addams Family was brought to life as a television series in the 1960s. The family was also depicted as an animated series in the early 1970s and later a feature film in the 1990s starring Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christina Ricci, and Christopher Lloyd.
The Addams Family will haunt theaters on October 11, 2019.
