Long adored for being creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky, The Addams Family returns to the big
screen this Halloween in a way you haven’t seen them before.
In the first animated film featuring this iconic family, Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Uncle
Fester, and Grandma join a lively cast of characters to remind us why they are the most eccentric
family in the neighborhood.
Except in this case, they are the most eccentric family in the run-down mansion on top of a fogsurrounded
hill in New Jersey (a nod to creator Charles Addams’ home state). Happily ensconced in
their Addams way of life for years, Gomez and Morticia prepare for a visit from their extended
family for Pugsley’s “Sabre Mazurka,” a rite of passage ceremony to prove he is ready to become an
Addams Family man.
Little does the family know, their neighbor down the hill — design TV phenom Margaux Needler
— is constructing a prefabricated community, replete with technicolor pop and perfectionism.
When the fog lifts, Margaux is disconcerted to see The Addams Family mansion — the one thing
standing between her dream of selling all the houses in the neighborhood and being adored as a TV
As Pugsley struggles to learn the complicated “Sabre Mazurka” routine, Wednesday finds herself
struggling with coming-of-age. She befriends Margaux’s daughter Parker and pushes boundaries, as
well as, Morticia’s buttons by joining in on “normal” pursuits like attending public school,
cheerleading, and pink barrettes.
A hilarious and endearing tale of acceptance, The Addams Family brings Charles Addams’ New
Yorker cartoons to life and will inspire people of all ages to embrace a new idea of what is normal.
