MGM has released the first poster for its forthcoming animated reboot of The Addams Family, being animated by Cinesite Studios in Vancouver, which is the new name of Nitrogen Studios, who also produced Sausage Party.
Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends, Day of the Diesels) direct a voice cast, which includes Oscar Isaac as Gomez, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Charlize Theron as Morticia, Bette Midler as Gandmama, and Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The Addams Family lives are turned upside down when they realize the town next door is suddenly full of uptight suburbanites led by an over-the-top TV host who is trying to build the perfect world — her way! — and who will stop at nothing to get rid of a freaky family like the Addams. If that’s not bad enough, Wednesday has to go to public school for the first time, and Pugsley has to prepare for a big performance that the extended Addams family from across the globe will be coming to judge. What could possibly go wrong?
The film which is based on the iconic cartoon series by Charles Addams will be produced by Vernon with Gail Berman, via her production company The Jackal Group, and Alex Schwartz, and will be executive produced by Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi and Joe Earley.
The Addams Family will meet the audience in theatres on 11 October 2019.
