The Addams Family is ready to drop it like it’s hot.
Following a brief teaser this spring that didn’t really divulge much information about MGM‘s animated reboot of the creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky family at all, the first proper trailer has arrived. Directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters Vs. Aliens) and Greg Tiernan (Sausage Party, Thomas and Friends), The Addams Family is a contemporary take on Charles Addams’ iconic family, who first appeared in cartoons published in The New Yorker and later became an international sensation through the 1964 television series, animated appearances in the ’70s, and a trilogy of feature films in the ’90s. In the new trailer, the family finds itself visiting a frightening new locale: New Jersey.
The Addams Family features the voice talents of Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Charlize Theron (Long Shot), Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Nick Kroll (The Secret Life of Pets 2), Bette Midler (Beaches), and Allison Janney (Minions). with Snoop Dogg as Cousin IT. Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Tituss Burgess, Jenifer Lewis, Elsie Fisher, and Aimee Garcia also star in the film.
While the film snaps its fingers at theaters everywhere on Oct. 11, fans can already find some Addams Family toys and collectibles that are creeping into stores right now. Among the highlights is a plush collection by Cuddle Barn that select guests of the Pop Insider‘s rooftop party at Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) received in their swag bags last month!
