MGM Studios unveils new trailer for ‘The Addams Family 2’

MGM Studios has released a new trailer for The Addams Family 2, which sees the creepy and kooky family going on a family vacation. 

In the new trailer, you will see how Wednesday and Pugsley’s science experiments and talent show acts go south in school, and we get more details of what we can expect from the spooky family vacation in places like Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon. Uncle Fester reveals details of the day Wednesday was born and a new villain is set to expose the Addams’ quirkiness to the world.

Here’s the official synopsis: Everyone’s favorite spooky family is back in the animated comedy sequel, The Addams Family 2. In this all new movie we find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?

The sequel to the MGM’s 2019 animated comedy hit, The Addams Family, stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton (Pugsley), Bette Midler (Grandma), Snoop Dogg (It), and Bill Hader (Cyrus).

The Addams Family 2 is one of three ongoing projects based on the comic strip of the same name. A TV series titled Wednesday, directed and produced by Tim Burton, has recently cast Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luiz Guzmán as Morticia and Gomez Addams. Also, The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem video game will be released this fall, which lets players learn the “horrifically exciting history” of the family mansion while 3D-platforming their way through the game, jumping, bumping and racing along the way, either solo or with up to four co-op players.

The Addams Family 2 is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon; produced by Vernon, Gail Berman, Danielle Sterling, and Alison O’Brien; and executive produced by Kevin Miserocchi, Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange, Andrew Mittman, Aaron L. Gilbert, and Jason Cloth.

Based on characters by Charles Addams, the story is by Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit with the screenplay by Hernandez, Samit, Ben Queen, and Susanna Fogel.

Recently, the studio announced a shift in the release strategy. Originally set to premiere exclusively in theaters, the animated sequel will now hit video-on-demand platforms on the same day, which is another indication studios have to work around the COVID-19 pandemic in order to maintain their schedules.

The highly anticipated 3D CG animation comedy hits both cinemas and VOD rental channels on 1 October.
