First Look: The CG ‘Addams Family’
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.
The voice cast for this new cg iteration includes Oscar Isaac as Gomez, Chloë Grace Moretz as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard as Pugsley, Charlize Theron as Morticia, Bette Midler as Grandmama, and Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester. In a tongue-in-cheek marketing move, the movie’s first teaser trailer will drop on Wednesday, April 10 referencing the family’s daughter.
The Addams Family will open in theaters on October 11, 2019.
