The Addams Family return for Halloween

Loved for being creepy, mysterious and spooky, The Addams Family returns to the big screen this Halloween.

In the first animated film featuring this iconic family, Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Uncle Fester, and Grandma join a lively cast of characters to remind us why they are the most eccentric family in the neighbourhood.

Except in this case, they are the most eccentric family in the run-down mansion in New Jersey. Happy in their Addams way of life for years, Gomez and Morticia prepare for a visit from their extended family for Pugsley’s “Sabre Mazurka,” a ceremony to prove he is ready to become an Addams Family man.

Little does the family know, their neighbour down the hill — TV star Margaux Needler — is constructing a community of perfect, colourful houses. When a fog lifts, Margaux is horrified to see The Addams Family mansion — the one thing standing between her dream of selling all the houses in the neighbourhood and being adored as a TV personality forever.

As Pugsley struggles to learn the complicated “Sabre Mazurka” routine, Wednesday finds herself struggling with coming-of-age. She befriends Margaux’s daughter Parker and pushes boundaries, as well as, Morticia’s buttons by joining in on “normal” pursuits like attending public school and cheerleading.

A hilarious and endearing tale of acceptance, The Addams Family brings the cartoons to life and will inspire people of all ages to embrace a new idea of what is normal. See it in cinemas from October 31.
