With COVID-19 cases rising, studios are facing tough decisions regarding the upcoming release of theatrical films. When it comes to family-oriented titles, we’re seeing a shift in the landscape even quicker. With Clifford the Big Red Dog being removed from release indefinitely and Hotel Transylvania 4 heading to Amazon Prime Video, The Addams Family 2 has shifted course. MGM/BRON will now release the sequel both in theaters and through premium on demand on October 1, 2021. In the film (from MGM):
Everyone’s favorite spooky family is back in the animated comedy sequel, The Addams Family 2. In this all new movie we find Morticia and Gomez distraught that their children are growing up, skipping family dinners, and totally consumed with “scream time.” To reclaim their bond they decide to cram Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester and the crew into their haunted camper and hit the road for one last miserable family vacation. Their adventure across America takes them out of their element and into hilarious run-ins with their iconic cousin, IT, as well as many new kooky characters. What could possibly go wrong?
