The official trailer has been released for The Addams Family, an upcoming CG-animated movie taking the kooky family back to the big screen.
It looks like the plot primarily follows daughter Wednesday Addams (voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz) as she enters the local school. Her “differences” places a certain spotlight on her and her family, and the town soon has them in their sights.
It’s a much better trailer than that first one; this makes it provides confidence in a fun family film with some nice animation and safe ‘be yourself’ messages for the kids. There’s a strong voice cast, including Oscar Isaac as Gomez Addams, Charlize Theron as Morticia Addams, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley Addams, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester and Snoop Dogg as Cousin Itt.
Sausage Party directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon are going a much more PC route here, working with a screenplay by Matt Lieberman (The Christmas Chronicles) and Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House).
The Addams Family, also featuring voice work from Bette Midler, Allison Janney, Elsie Fisher, Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara, opens in the US on October 11 and arrives in Australia on December 5.
