The Addams Family was created by cartoonist Charles Addams back in 1938 and since has appeared on both the big and small screen numerous times over the years, including an animated version released in theaters in 2019. A sequel to that film is set to hit theaters in 2021. First footage from The Addams Family 2 was unveiled earlier this month along with the debut of the first poster for the film.
