Full voice cast announced for animated Addams Family film

The Addams FamilyThe full voice cast for MGM’s upcoming animated adaptation of The Addams Family has just been announced and it’s a stellar one.

We have Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) starring as Gomez Addams, Charlize Theron (Mad Max Fury Road) as Morticia, Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass) as Wednesday, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Pugsley, Nick Kroll (Big Mouth) as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler (Hocus Pocus) as Grandmama, and Allison Janney (I, Tonya) as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.

According to Collider, Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan (Sausage Party) will be directing the film with a screenplay written by Matt Lieberman. They discussed the project in a statement, saying:

“Greg and I have always been a fan of the Addams Family in past versions, so when we set out to make this movie, we were excited to do something new. With that in mind, I drew from the brilliantly original Charles Addams New Yorker cartoons for the look of the film and decided to tell the story of how Gomez and Morticia meet, find their house and start their family. This unique approach is what drew me in to direct the film. The reimagining also extends to the stellar cast we’ve put together who will each bring their own spin to our film that will appeal to longtime fans of the Addams and introduce them to a new generation.”

The Addams Family has previously been adapted into two live action films in 1991 and 1993, starring Raul Julia as Gomez, Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Fester, and Christina Ricci as Wednesday. The Addams have also had their own Broadway musical starring Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth.

A concept photo has also been released and it looks Tim Burton-esque and also true to the spirit of this iconic family.

The Addams Family is due to be released on October 11, 2019.
