THE ADDAMS FAMILY Movie Gets a Sequel Order With a Release Date Already Set
This season had one of its most anticipated “spoopy” films release and it did better than was forecast.
The PG film follows Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley and Uncle Fester as they make a new home in New Jersey and attempt to maintain their love for the macabre.
With the success of the movie comes good news. There will be another! And they already have a release date!
That date being October 22, 2020.
The film was co-written and co-directed by Conrad Vernon, who worked on well known animated films like Shrek and Monsters Vs. Aliens. Also involved was co-director Greg Tiernan, who worked on his own slate of wonderfully animated films that include An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and many Thomas & Friends films.
The Addams Family starred many famous voices such as Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloe Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Tituss Burgess and many more.
“The Addams Family” originated in 150 single panel cartoons by Charles Addams, about half of which were published in The New Yorker between 1938 and Addams’ death in 1988. The characters became famous through ABC’s sitcom, which ran for two seasons between 1964 and 1966 and led to several other TV series. There are two Paramount live-action films which are perhaps the most recognizable of the Addams renditions. Plus, most recently, a Broadway musical.
