The Addams Family 2 has added new names to its star-studded cast, as well as a release date and first teaser.
The first movie, an animated version of the spooky family classic, was released last year, with the likes of Star Wars' Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Snoop Dogg all lending their voice talents.
The upcoming sequel, which will be released in almost exactly a year's time for Halloween 2021 on October 8, will see all the aforementioned return, and has added It Chapter 2 star Bill Hader to the cast too.
The actor will take on the role of new character Cyrus, while Javon 'Wanna' Walton (Euphoria) has also signed-up, replacing Stranger Things and Hader's fellow It star Finn Wolfhard in the role of Pugsley.
The Addams Family 2 was announced in a new teaser, which you can check out above, that showcases characters Thing, Uncle Fester (Nick Kroll), Cousin Itt (Dogg) and Wednesday (Moretz).
Director Greg Tiernan, who helmed the first movie, said of the new cast additions: "The success of last year's animated film was proof of the enduring legacy of The Addams Family and its ability to transcend popular culture.
"This second film will be every bit as fun as the original. We are thrilled to welcome Bill Hader and Javon Walton, and to welcome back our incredible original cast for this exciting next chapter in the Addams's journey."
The Addams Family 2 will be released on October 8, 2021.
