FoCC First-Look: The Addams Family scares up a fantastic cast


Addams Family fans get ready for some exciting news. MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer) Pictures announced the cast for their upcoming animated feature, The Addams Family. The cast is stellar and will  feature the voices of Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Annihilation) as Gomez Addams, Academy Award winner Charlize Theron (Atomic Blonde, Mad Max: Fury Road) as Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz  (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, If I Stay) as Wednesday Addams, Finn Wolfhard (It, Netflix’s Stranger Things) as Pugsley Addams, Nick Kroll (Big Mouth, Sing) as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler (Hocus Pocus, Beaches) as Grandmama and Academy Award winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya, Mom) as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.

Pictures of the cast:

The film will be directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends, Day of the Diesels).

This is a brief synopsis for the film according to the press release:

Based on the famous New Yorker creations of Charles Addams, this animated action-comedy will follow the Addams family whose lives begin to unravel when they face-off against a crafty reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration, Addams-style.

The release date for the film is October 11, 2019 so there is a little bit of a wait but as a fan of the original series and the feature films from the 1990’s (The Addams Family and Addams Family Values) I am excited and will be adding this to my list.
