Trailer to WEDNESDAY (Addams) Released – Danny Elfman & Craig Bacon to Score
Based on the ADDAMS FAMILY cartoons and TV/film series, WEDNESDAY is a sardonic coming-of-age supernatural mystery comedy focusing on Wednesday Addams and her years as a high school student at Nevermore Academy, wherein she attempts to master her psychic powers, stop a monstrous killing spree of the town citizens, and solve the supernatural mystery that affected her family 25 years ago – all while navigating her new relationships. The series trailer was dropped today by Netflix.
Danny Elfman has composed an original series theme for WEDNESDAY, and both he and Craig Bacon (MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL, BATES MOTEL series, SHERLOCK GNOMES) will score the series’ episodes.
Jenna Ortega plays the titular character in the series, supported by Catherine Zeta-Jones (Morticia Addams) and Luis Guzmán (Gomez Addams), Fred Armisen (Uncle Fester), Isaac Ordonez (Pugsley Addams), Iman Marson (Lucas Walker), Lucius Hoyos (Young Gomez). Other cast members include Victor Teodor Dorobantu (Thing), Calum Ross (Rowan Laslow), Luyanda Unati Lewis-Nyawo (Deputy Rita Santiago). The trailer also revealed which character Christina Ricci will play in the new series. Ricci played Wednesday in Barry Sonnenfeld’s THE ADDAMS FAMILY film in 1991 and reprised her role in the 1993 sequel ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES. Her character in the Netflix series had been kept secret but is revealed to be Marilyn Thornhill, an original character created for the series whom Wednesday meets at the end of the trailer.
The eight-episode series is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on Wednesday (of course), November 23, 2022.
