It sounds like the latest look at The Addams Family is just a snap of the fingers away. On Thursday, Bette Middler took to social media to tease that the film's second trailer will debut in six days. Accompanied to her tweet was a teaser, which uses the film's recently-released character posters to count down to the affair.
The all-new animated film will see the Addams family's lives begin to unravel when they face-off against a treacherous, greedy crafty reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration. In addition to Moretz, The Addams Family will star Oscar Isaac as Gomez, Charlize Theron as Morticia, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, and Bette Midler as Grandma. The film will also feature two original characters - Alison Janney as reality-TV host Margaux Needler, and Elsie Fisher as her daughter Parker.
The film will be directed by Sausage Party directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, who will be drawing inspiration from the past incarnations of the iconic family.
“Greg and I have always been a fan of the Addams Family in past versions, so when we set out to make this movie, we were excited to do something new," Vernon said in a statement. "With that in mind, I drew from the brilliantly original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons for the look of the film and decided to tell the story of how Gomez and Morticia meet, find their house and start their family. This unique approach is what drew me in to direct the film. The reimagining also extends to the stellar cast we’ve put together who will each bring their own spin to our film that will appeal to longtime fans of the Addams and introduce them to a new generation.”
