Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.
Back in 2010, it was announced that Illumination Entertainment, in partnership with Universal Pictures, had acquired the film rights to the Addams Family. The film was planned to be entirely stop-motion animated with the characters based on Charles Addams' original drawings. Tim Burton was set to co-write and co-produce the film, with the possibility to direct as well. In July 2013, however, it was reported that the film was cancelled. See more »

I have been a big fan of the Addams Family since I saw the first movie, and looked forward to seeing this on the big screen.
The movie was OK. It was an entertaining hour and a half, but it does not inspire repeated viewing. It actually seems more appropriate as a movie pilot for a new children's show than it does for a movie.
The people who created this obviously had a lot of love for the property, and seemed to have fun with it, which translates well to the screen. But coupled with the thin plot and less than stellar design, there is a lot to be desired.
One bright spot was the first 10 minutes, which served as a sort of an origin story for the clan. I really wish that they had gone that route instead of the by the numbers route they chose for their final product.
