The Addams Family, the new animated film based on everyone’s favorite kooky family, will creep onto digital platforms on December 24, 2019 with a Blu Ray, DVD, and VOD release to follow on January 21, 2020.
Based on the classic comics by Charles Addams, the film is the latest in a long line of adaptations including the classic TV series starring John Astin and Carolyn Jones and the film versions from the 90s that boasted an all-star cast including Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Carol Kane, and Christina Ricci.
The new animated film, with character designs based on the original Addams drawings, finds the macabre family moving into an oh-so-normal suburb where Wednesday becomes friends with a girl whose father is an ultra-conformist reality TV show host. Naturally, tensions soon mount between the two families.
The Addams Family boasts a brilliant voice cast including Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Gomez, Charlize Theron (Monster) as Morticia, Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie) as Wednesday, and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as Pugsley.
Snoop Dogg, Nick Kroll, Bette Midler, Allison Janney, Martin Short, and Catherine O’Hara also lend their voice talents to the film.
The Blu Ray and DVD release will feature a host of bonus features including:
- Deleted and Extended Scenes
