When is the new Addams Family movie out and what's it about?

The new Addams Family film is set to be released on 11th October, 2019.

Following the lives of the ghoulish Addams Family, the new animated film focuses on their efforts to avoid becoming the latest reality TV stars.

During a family celebration, a TV host comes calling, hoping to feature the macabre clan in a new show.

Morticia and Gomez, along with their children Wednesday and Pugsley, put together a plan to shake off the media attention once and for all.

What other Addams Family movies have there been?

The last time the Addams Family graced the big screen was in 1993, when Addams Family Values came out.

The classic live action film starred Anjelica Huston, Raúl Juliá, and a young Christina Ricci as Wednesday - all of whom starred in the previous 1991 version.

The very first Addams Family film was released in the 1960s, and there was a TV series that ran between 1998-1999.
