A Brief History of The Addams Family.
The concept of The Addams family was first introduced by cartoonist Charles Addams back in 1937. This entertaining tongue-in-cheek notion was carried down to many films, television series, stage plays and books. The family consists of Gomez and Morticia Addams and their children Wednesday and Pugsley and a few other characters. The family is an immigrant family, one that has moved to America from another country. In the 1960’s TV series, a number of weird and amazing artifacts were spotted including monster plants, spooky rugs, unusual wall hangings, and many other items. This show is still very much fresh in the minds of rising stars who aspire to become successful film directors.
The 1991 movie based on The Addams Family cartoon or comic strip and the TV series proved to be a trend-setter in adapted movies. It was followed suit by famous movies like The Flintstones, The Beverly Hillbillies and Leave it to Beaver, which were all based on hit TV shows. Celebrities who have contended to be cast as Morticia include Cher and Anjelica Huston.
In the new 2019 film, the unusual spooky family is shown to be living in a New Jersey neighborhood. In fact, they have been “singled out” because of being, well, different from others. Since it’s an animated movie, it stars the voices of some famous celebrities like Oscar Isaacs, Chloe Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Bette Midler and Allison Janney.
The film hit the theaters on October 11, 2019. Have a nice watching!
