‘The Addams Family’ animated film uses ‘It’ joke in first trailer
It was reported that a trailer would be coming soon after, and now it’s finally here.
The trailer shows the classic spooky family we know and love. However, besides just the animation itself, the film definitely has a modern twist. Morticia Addams even makes reference to Stephen King's It in the short teaser that made us horror movie buffs geek out.
“Strange. There’s usually a murderous clown attached to the other end of these,” she says about her daughter holding a red balloon.
The teaser is equal parts cute and spooky, which is pretty much all we can ask for in the remake. You can watch it for yourself below.
As previously reported, MGM president, Jonathan Glickman, revealed the absolutely stacked cast set to voice the Addams family.
Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron will play the parents, Gomez and Morticia Addams. Finn Wolfhard will star as Pugsley, while Chloë Grace Moretz is lending her voice to Wednesday Addams.
Plus, Nick Kroll is going to play Uncle Fester and Bette Midler will star as Grandmama. Additionally, Allison Janney will lend her voice to the Addams family arch nemesis Margaux Needler.
The Addams Family was first inspired by Charles Addams’ comic strips in the New Yorker. Then, the family was then adapted to the silver screen in the 60s. From there, the franchise grew into a cult phenomenon, acquiring even more adaptations and reboots. You can check out some of the original comic drawings here.
