Addams Family Trailer: Gay Parents Are an 'Average American Family'

Addams Family

The children's film presented an inclusive vision of what it means to be a family.

The Addams family is creepy, kooky, and accepting of LGBTQ diversity.

A new trailer of the children's animated film The Addams Family showcases several sketches of the "average American family." The first portrait is a white family; the second is a multiracial family; and the third and fourth appear to show same-sex couples with kids and pets.

"Every family is different, but some families are more different than others," said the voiceover in the trailer, which then ends with a portrait of the Addams family.

It is not clear if the new film, which comes out in October, will also include LGBTQ characters. Co-directors Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon infamously featured a queer taco shell voiced by Salma Hayek in their animated 2016 Seth Rogen film, Sausage Party.

The cast of The Addams Family also includes many allies, such as Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz, Bette Midler, and Allison Janney.

Of course, LGBTQ people have long related to the upper-class but eccentric members of the Addams family, who have a history of spurning what it means to be "normal." The '90s films directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and starring Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, and Christina Ricci frequently made fun of heteronormative society.
