Before it was a TV show and before it hit movie screens, The Addams Family was a comic strip – which has inspired this new animated take.

If you thought any of the antics you’d seen of the family living at 0001 Cemetery Lane were out-there before, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

A voice cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Allison Janney and (oh no!) Bette Midler will bring us this new creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and ooky adventure. The story will revolve around the Addams Family going up against a sneaky reality TV host, all while they plan for an extended family get-together.

We’re loving the vibe of this brief teaser – especially the balloon gag.

The Addams Family opens in the US in October, and we’re guessing that it won’t be far from there in Australia – just in time for Halloween, of course.

Sneak up on The Addams Family at JB Hi-Fi – including some wicked black and white Pop! Vinyls.
