You know what they say in 2019: Another day, another reboot.
Usually, news of a reboot makes me groan, because the pop culture franchises that do get reboots are often based on subjects that are not altogether that old — and reboots rarely ever present said subjects in a fresh and original manner.
But that's not the case when it comes to The Addams Family. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer is going to relaunch the beloved family back into fame this year with a reboot of the franchise — an animated one. On October 11, Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, and so many more will be revived on the big screen as animated characters heavily based on the original comic strip that debuted in The New Yorker way back in the 1930s.
And this new animated reboot brings a majorly talented, star-studded cast that includes the likes of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, Elsie Fisher, Allison Janney, and more. Much to fans' delight, the first trailer for the highly anticipated movie just dropped, and it's making us all the more excited.
Below, watch the modern Addams Family cast take on their respective roles in new footage from the upcoming animated film.
