The creepy, kooky Addams clan is headed back to theaters next year in The Addams Family 2, a sequel to last year’s animated film and you could join them!
Charlize Theron and Oscar Isaac are set to return as Morticia and Gomez Addams along with Chloe Grace Moretz, Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, and Snoop Dogg as Wednesday, Uncle Fester, Grandma, and Cousin It, respectively. Javon “Wanna” Walton will take over the role of Pugsley Addams, previously voiced by Finn Wolfhard, and Bill Hader (It: Chapter Two) is joining the cast as a new character named Cyrus.
Greg Tiernan will also return as director for the new film.
“The success of last year’s animated film was proof of the enduring legacy of The Addams Family and its ability to transcend popular culture,” Tiernan said in a statement. “This second film will be every bit as fun as the original. We are thrilled to welcome Bill Hader and Javon Walton, and to welcome back our incredible original cast for this exciting next chapter in the Addams’s journey.”
Details for The Addams Family 2 are vague at the moment, but here’s what the studio has released so far: In this all new movie, The Addams get tangled up in wacky adventures and find themselves involved in hilarious run-ins with all sorts of unsuspecting characters. Always staying true to themselves, the Addams Family brings their iconic spookiness and kookiness wherever they go.
It’s a pretty standard Addams Family set-up, but hey, it works!
In addition to the new casting announcement, MGM has also announced that one fan will have an opportunity to join the film as a yet-to-be-named character plus $2000. Full details about the contest and requirements can be found by CLICKING HERE.
