A trailer has been released for the upcoming animated spin on The Addams Family. Clearly aimed at children, the story here seems to follow the family as they move to New Jersey and learn that not everyone thinks and acts the way they do. All about being different yet trying to fit in, I think this is going to be a very important film for any family whose children are being bullied just for liking something “weird” or “odd”. Let’s remember that this was never meant to be a movie for older generations. Rather, it’s a way for older generations to help put into context some of the more difficult parts of life.
“The first family of Halloween, the Addams Family, is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block. Funny, outlandish, and completely iconic, the Addams Family redefines what it means to be a good neighbor.“
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan and based on the characters created by Charles Addams, The Addams Family features the voices of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Tituss Burgess, Jenifer Lewis, Elsie Fisher, and Aimee Garcia.
The film comes out on October 11th, 2019.
