MGM has released the first poster for its upcoming The Addams Family animated feature, which is scheduled for release in time for Halloween.
After several different development phases, the project finally came to Conrad Vernon (Madagascar 3, Monsters vs. Aliens) in 2017. Greg Tiernan, who was Vernon’s co-director in the R-rated Sausage Party, later joined as a co-director.
The Addams Family is being animated by Cinesite Studios in Vancouver, which is the new name of Nitrogen Studios, where Sausage Party was produced. Judging by the poster, the cg character designs appear to be fairly faithful to the original print cartoons of Charles Addams.
