Here’s a bit of trivia. Did you know that, in spite of its many incarnations, there actually hasn’t been an animated The Addams Family movie? Call me an idiot (as many of you often do), but I’m actually surprised by that fact. Well, worry no longer, because MGM has produced the first animated feature for the world’s oddest family, and they’ve released a first teaser of what to expect.
This first look doesn’t really have much of a throughline, but it has a fun little joke at the beginning at how different the Addams family is. We see inside the mansion as well as each of the lead characters of the family. Admittedly, the animation isn’t much to speak of. It’s certainly no Pixar in terms of the budget, but it’s styled in a way that’s fitting. My biggest critique isn’t much to do with the film, but with the advertising. As with most animated movies, instead of pushing character and story, they tend to go with gags, and when they fall short, the movie looks bad. And that Battleship joke at the end was bad.
Below is the official synopsis from The Addams Family:
“Get ready to snap your fingers! The Addams Family is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block. Funny, outlandish, and completely iconic, the Addams Family redefines what it means to be a good neighbor.”
