The first trailer for Wednesday, Tim Burton's take on the creepy and kooky family created by Charles Addams, has been released on Netflix. She follows the young Addams' misadventures as she enrolls in a new school and tries to sharpen her psychic abilities.
Burton created a special setting for Wednesday, as Ortega plays an outcast version of the character who goes from school to school without making friends along the way. Sadly, Wednesday is as awful as an Addams can be, and the trailer already reveals the reason for the girl being ejected from her latest high school: releasing carnivorous piranhas into the swimming pool.
Wednesday goes to the Nevermore Academy, where her mother, Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones), has met her father, Luis Guzman. The Nevermore Academy is a popular place for Addams, since she can continue her studies among other dark and gloomy students. However, fitting in will not be easy as Wednesday is always in the midst of chaos and destruction.
Isaac Ordonez will play Wednesday's younger brother Pugsley, Garfunkel and Oates. She will play Dr. Valerie Kinbott, Jamie McShane (Sons of Anarchy) as Sheriff Donovan Galpin, and Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) as a main cast member. Danny Elfman will direct the series, which will be directed by legendary composer Dana Elfman.
Wednesday will be released this Fall on Netflix, as Collider has exclusively revealed. Check out the trailer and official synopsis for Wednesday:
Wednesday is a young adult television series inspired by Charles Addams' original character and described as a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery that follows Wednesday Addams' years as a student at Nevermore Academy.
