In the series' new trailer, Netflix's take on Wednesday Addams is the ultimate transfer student.
Although Wednesday, the upcoming Netflix comedy from director Tim Burton, is best known for its misanthropic main character, Morticia and Gomez Addams' daughter has always been a social butterfly, as the first trailer for Wednesday shows.
Even though the people Wednesday Addams chooses to grace with her presence may not share her sense of fun, that doesn't mean she isn't trying her best to, you know, connect with them.
The first trailer for Wednesday introduces the main character, Wednesday (Jenna Ortega), as she is being expelled from yet another "normal" school for terrorising her classmates. Neither her parents, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman, are particularly surprised by this news.
Wednesday's parents are aware that she is merely acting naturally and defending her brother Pugsley (Isaac Ordonez), but they also realise that if their daughter is to receive a quality education, she will need a school that can accommodate her particular needs.
The Nevermore Academy, a peculiar school run by Larissa Weems (Gwendoline Christie), is clearly a much better fit for Wednesday given its classes' emphasis on lethal duels and otherworldly creatures from the trailer.
What's more difficult to predict is whether the rest of Nevermore's student body will be prepared for the chaos that its newest student will bring to the school when Wednesday premieres on Netflix this fall.
Members of the Addams Family include Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, and Isaac Ordonez as Wednesday's brother Pugsley. Thing is played by Victor Dorobantu, and Lurch is played by George Burcea
Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Percy Hynes White, Hunter Doohan, Emma Myers, Joy Sunday, Naomi J Ogawa, Moosa Mostafa, Georgie Farmer, and Riki Lindhome also star.
