MGM announces The Addams Family 2
There have been a lot of classic TV series that have made their way onto the big screen, but few have the content to work in both live action and animation. After two live action theatrical releases in 1991 and 1993 as well as some straight to video releases in 1998 the popular series The Adams Family hit theaters in its first animated feature in 2019. Thanks to its success they are getting the sequel they deserve with the aptly titled The Addams Family 2 in 2021.
If you have never stepped into their cooky spooky world it follows Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, Morticia who is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday thier brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and deadpan wit. Son, Pugsley, a menacing 10-year-old on over-drive who enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester who is good-natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can and Grandmama who is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls.
In the sequel, The Addams get tangled up in wacky adventures and find themselves involved in hilarious run-ins with all sorts of unsuspecting characters. The film features returning cast Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, and Snoop Dogg along with new additions Bill Hader and Javon “Wanna” Walton with Greg Tierman returning to the director’s chair.
While you have will have to wait until October 8, 2021 to get in on the horrific fun that only the Addams can deliver, you can check out the announcement trailer and couple of posters here now from MGM.
