Not only is there going to be a new Addams Family universe show, Wednesday, on Netflix, but Christina Ricci is going to have a “major part.”
GAH!! I’m so stinkin’ excited!!
If you recall, Christina Ricci flawlessly played Wednesday Addams in the movie Addams Family Values. You can’t think of Wednesday Addams without picturing a younger Christina Ricci in that jet black wig.
The live-action Addams Family spinoff is going to be directed by Tim Burton. I mean, that’s reason enough to watch it right there!
But, it’s going to have the OG (movie) Wednesday Addams, Christina Ricci, as one of the characters.
Okay, I must see this show NOW.
The coming-of-age comedy, written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar and directed by Burton, stars Ortega as Wednesday Addams during her years at Nevermore Academy. It’s described as a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery.Deadline
Now, Ricci won’t be playing Wednesday Addams in this spinoff — but, never fear, she will be included in the cast. AND, she is being called a series regular!
