If you think your family is weird, then you haven’t met the Addamses. Hailed to be one of the most famous families in America, ‘The Addams Family’ is getting an animated remake!

A peek into the family background

The Addams family is an odd family who has a taste for the weird and macabre. Thankfully, the family is only a fictional one created by Charles Addams. Imagine having a family like that in the neighbourhood! I’ll keep my thoughts to myself because the family really doesn’t care what everybody else thinks about them and they are unapologetically themselves!

Various adaptations have been made based on the cartoon, the live action one in 1991 being the most popular to this date. The Addams Family, in most adaptations, traditionally included Gomez and Morticia Addams, and their children, Wednesday and Pugsley. There are the other close relatives, too, like Uncle Fester, Grandmama, and Gomez’s Cousin Itt. The show also included their butler named Lurch and the disembodied hand, Thing.

We loved the weird relationship between Gomez and Morticia, being that no matter how weird and scary the world thinks they are, the understood each other on a different level.

Also, don’t you find it funny how Wednesday terrifies the hell out of us even if she’s just a kid?

Overall, the family had that great of an effect on popular culture. Time Magazine even implied that the Addamses reach was “so much a part of the American landscape that it’s difficult to discuss the country’s history without mentioning them.” It’s great to see a new animated film created about this family!

It’s hideous and horrible. It’s home!

The teaser showed Morticia and Gomez trying to select a home, and frankly, their tastes are pretty peculiar. It showed that a being from the house, or we don’t know, maybe the house itself shouted: “Get out!”, which just made the couple love the house more. They also made some clever references to a killer clown and other macabre things. Wednesday also has a weird idea of lightening up someone’s day. We can also see Thing snapping to the beat of the background music.

As of now, we only know that the film is going to be released in this year’s Halloween, but we honestly can’t wait to see it! Don’t you think that teaser was exciting, too? Share us your thoughts on the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
