Finger snaps please! MGM has just released a set of character posters signaling the upcoming return of the mysterious, spooky, and uniquely odd Addams clan in The Addams Family 2. Hitting theaters October 1, 2021, the film stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton (Pugsley), Bette Midler (Grandma), Snoop Dogg (It), and Bill Hader (Cryus).
The sequel to the studio’s 2019 hit finds Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond, they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, It, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?
The Addams Family 2 is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon; produced by Vernon, Gail Berman, and Alison O’Brien; and executive produced by Kevin Miserocchi, Jonathan Glickman, Cassidy Lange, Aaron L. Gilbert, and Jason Cloth.
