The Addams Family gets animated on Showmax

An animated version of The Addams Family, which features voices of Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, and Chloë Grace Moretz, is now available to stream on Showmax.



The world’s kookiest family is coming to town and this poor little New Jersey suburb has no idea what’s about to hit it. When Wednesday Addams befriends the daughter of reality TV host Margaux Needler, who’s hell-bent on building the perfect planned community, the Addams family find themselves way out of their league when it comes to “assimilation.” 

The all-star voice cast is led by Oscar winner Charlize Theron as Morticia Addams; Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac (Star Wars’ Poe Dameron) as Gomez; Teen Choice and Joey Award winner Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) as Wednesday; and People’s Choice and Teen Choice nominee Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) as the death-defying, gene-pool-skimming Pugsley.  

Emmy-nominated comedian Nick Kroll (Big Mouth) voices Uncle Fester, Emmy nominee Snoop Dogg is It, and Oscar nominee Bette Midler plays Grandma. The Needlers are voiced by Oscar winner Allison Janney as Margaux and Golden Globe nominee Elsie Fisher (Despicable Me’s adorable Agnes) as Parker. Also listen out for Emmy-winning comedy legends Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice) and Martin Short (SCTVThree Amigos, Inner Space) as the voices of Grandma and Grandpa Frump. 

When you’re finished, move straight on to Barry Sonnenfeld’s 1991 live action original with Anjelica Huston and Christina Ricci, which earned Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations. Showmax also has 1993’s hit sequel, Addams Family Values.  

Both the animated and live-action versions of The Addams Family are available to stream now on Showmax.
