Here’s Your First Look At The New Animated Addams Family Movie, Now Starring Charlize Theron

They’re creepy, sure. Perhaps even kooky, too. Definitely mysterious and spooky. But whether or not the stars of MGM’s reboot of The Addams Family are altogether ooky remains to be seen. The cast has just been rounded out, and includes Mad Max: Fury Road‘s Charlize Theron.

Alongside the first look at the stylised stars of Sausage Party directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan’s upcoming animated reboot of the beloved, frightful family, MGM has also officially announced the remainder of the voice cast, joining the previously rumoured Oscar Isaac (playing Gomez).

Charlize Theron will play Morticia Addams, while Kick-Ass star Chloë Grace Moretz and Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard will round out the immediate Addams family members as Wednesday and Pugsley, respectively. Joining them will be Nick Kroll as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler as Grandmama, and while there’s no voice actor revealed for Lurch just yet, Allison Janney appears as the film’s villain, Margaux Needler.

There’ll be more cast on the way, too – the film will apparently see the family Addams tussling with Needler, a reality TV show host, while preparing to welcome their extended family into their humble, spooky abode, so you can expect some new, and presumably equally ooky, faces to appear too.

The Addams Family is set to hit US theatres on 11 October 2019. An Australian release date has not yet been announced.



  • My favourite thing about The Addams Family is that the original strip doesn’t work as well as the TV adaptation. The genius of the show was making the family’s home life loving and stable while also being macabre, and having these outsiders come in with their anti-social ideas. (A reality TV producer is exactly the kind of thing I want to see in an Addams Family antagonist.)

  • It reminds me of that version that appeared on Cartoon Network not long after the movies because popular… but worse.
