Production

The official character designs for the computer-animated Addams Family, based heavily on the original comics.

After acquiring the rights to the Addams Family comics, the film originally began production at Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment as a stop-motion animated film directed by Tim Burton and produced by Chris Meledandri.[4] However, in 2013, it was announced that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (current rights holder of the original Addams Family series and current foreign rights holder of the 1991 Addams Family film) would produce an animated film based on the Addams Family comics, with Pamela Pettler writing the screenplay.[5][6]

In October 2017, it was announced that the film would be directed and produced by Conrad Vernon. Gail Berman and Alex Schwartz will produce the film, and Matt Lieberman will make revisions to the screenplay, and the film would be animated by Cinesite Studios, with Tabitha Shick overseeing the film for MGM.[7][8] In December 2017, it was reported that Oscar Isaac was in talks to voice the role of Gomez Addams in the film.[2] In June 2018, Isaac was confirmed for the voice cast, alongside the additions of Charlize Theron, Allison Janney, Bette Midler, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard and Nick Kroll.[9] In July 2018, Aimee Garcia joined the voice cast.[10] In August 2018, Elsie Fisher joined the voice cast.[11]

Release

The film is scheduled to be released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on October 11, 2019.[3][2]
