Charles Addams' beloved clan of quirky characters returns to the big screen in the first trailer for MGM's animated feature The Addams Family.
Boasting an all-star voice cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz and Finn Wolfhard, the footage features the kind of humor we've come to expect from the creepy and kooky Addams Family, which the teaser positions as not exactly the average American family.
The animation leans hard into the original art of Charles Addams, whose single-panel cartoons were published in The New Yorker for 50 years, from 1938 until his death in 1988. That influence comes through in the gags, too, with Morticia and Gomez finding their "hideous" and "horrible," yet absolutely perfect, home, Wednesday receiving a cheerful red balloon (complete with It allusion), and Pugsley blowing things up.
