Just announced today via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is the home video release date for this year’s The Addams Family animated movie. The physical release is headed our way early next year on January 21st, 2020 in both Blu-ray and DVD formats while the digital version will go live just in time for Christmas on December 24th. Pre-orders are now up and available over on Amazon.

The film was a decent success at the box office and MGM wasted no time greenlighting a sequel in light of its strong opening. This follow-up is already set for a target release date of October 22nd, 2021, sticking with the Halloween month trend established this year. In the meantime, however, you will soon be able to revisit the first movie with a slew of special features in tow, which you can check out below along with the official cover art.

Special Features:

  • Deleted and Extended Scenes*
  • Welcome to the Family* – In this combined Making of/Character Profiles, we hear from the filmmakers and stars of The Addams Family about how the film came about, the animation process and insight into the characters.
  • Life of a Scene* – From black & white storyboards and layouts to animation and lighting, follow along with filmmakers as they bring to life a scene from the movie.
  • Charades with Thing* – There’s nothing quite like a game of Charades with your friends. But what happens when the person giving the clues isn’t exactly a person? What if he’s just… a hand? On talent day, stars of the film are invited to play Charades with Thing. Talent goes head-to-head, competing to see who can guess Thing’s clues. Graphics reveal the answers and keep score for each player.
