A new animated The Addams Family movie is coming later this year. The spooky family created by Charles Addams and published as one panel cartoon in The New Yorker, were fleshed out in the 1964 The Addams Family television series. Over the years the property has been adapted in cartoons and movies, and now it is being resurrected for a computer animated movie in the comic’s style.
Here’s how the movie’s distributor MGM describes the film:
IN THEATERS THIS HALLOWEEN.
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.
Directed By: Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll with Bette Midler and Allison Janney
Late last month a poster for the film was released:
