Get ready to snap your fingers! Set to be released in Malaysia on Halloween’s Day, watch the ghoulish Addams Family in this animated feature, with the voices of Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloe Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, and Bette Midler among others. If recent pop culture fans know The Addams Family at all, they probably remember it as a 1960s TV show, a 2010 Broadway musical, or a set of 1990s movies directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. But the “creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky” family actually started life as a series of satirical cartoons drawn by Charles Addams and published in The New Yorker between 1938 and 1988.
Now they are back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block. In case you have yet to meet them, the first family of Halloween, the Addams Family, consists of Morticia, her husband Gomez, and their kids Wednesday and Pugsley, Uncle Fester and Grandmama. Like most soft-pedaled children’s movies, their Addams family makes a vague gesture toward a meaningful life lesson — in this case, a timely message about the importance of recognizing people’s humanity, regardless of their differences. Funny, outlandish, and completely iconic, the Addams Family redefines what it means to be a good neighbor.
