It's Christina Ricci who says it, the first actress to play Wednesday Addams on screen in the 90s!
This is one of the most secret and perhaps the most ambitious projects Netflix. Wednesday(Wednesdayen V.F.), a spin-off of The Addams Family centered on the eldest daughter coming soon to the platform. Remember, this preteen dressed in black, two pigtails on each side of the head and a cynicism that hits the mark. Wednesday, what. In this future series, it isJenna Ortega, seen in the thriller series You, who slips into the heroine's gothic dress. A very good choice, according to Christina Ricci, the original performer of Wednesday in the cult 1991 film.
The actress, who takes part in the project in a still undisclosed role, explains: “It's really great. I love working with Tim Burton. I also worked with Gwendolyn Christie, it was amazing. And Jenna is great in the role. I saw some of the wardrobe outfits in photos before going on set. So I knew, when I saw him in character, that it was a really good modernization of Wednesday.” A promising project if we believe the actress on the return.
A 2.0 version of Wednesday Addams?
“It's really faithful to the spirit of the original character. And, at the same time, it’s very modern.”, concludes Christina Ricci. In Wednesday, the pre-teen of the original films goes independent a few years later. She is now a young woman and we follow her adventures in the Nevermore Academy (reference to the Gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe). Wednesday will investigate a series of mysterious murders that disturbs the quiet life of the inhabitants of the city. Wednesdayhas 8 episodes and should be released on Netflix during 2023.
