‘Back on the big scream’
The Addams Family 2 is a 2021 American animated comedy horror feature film and – obviously – a sequel to the 2019 box office hit. Despite mainly negative reviews, the first animated Addams Family movie went on to take $203,044,905 worldwide even before residual sales, so a sequel was inevitable.
Addams Family voice cast stars Charlize Theron (Morticia), Oscar Isaac (Gomez), Chloë Grace Moretz (Wednesday), Nick Kroll (Fester), Bette Midler (Grandma) and Snoop Dogg (It) are all returning and will be rounded out with the additions of Bill Hader as a new character “Cyrus,” and Javon “Wanna” Walton taking on the role of the youngest Addams sibling, “Pugsley.”
Director Greg Tiernan has also returned for the sequel, which will be released theatrically on October 8th 2021 via MGM’s United Artists Releasing banner.
Tiernan enthused: “The success of last year’s animated film was proof of the enduring legacy of The Addams Family and its ability to transcend popular culture. This second film will be every bit as fun as the original. We are thrilled to welcome Bill Hader and Javon Walton, and to welcome back our incredible original cast for this exciting next chapter in the Addams’s journey.”
