An official teaser trailer for MGM and Universal Pictures' upcoming, animated The Addams Family movie was just released this week, and it's surprisingly queer-inclusive!
Towards the begining of the teaser, we see super cute sketches of a diverse array of different kinds of families, including families of color, interracial families, families with one parent, and families with same-sex parents!
"Every family is different, but some families are more different than others," a voiceover says, then introducing us to the grey-looking but iconic members of the Addams Family, including Wednesday, Morticia, and Gomez.
It's a simple, sweet gesture, but it's one that is appreciated by the fans!

The last thing I expected to see from #TheAddamsFamily trailer was this beautiful normalisation of LGBTQ families. There's no fanfare surrounding the queer parents - They simply exist alongside the straight ones too. Love this #MeetTheAddams @meettheaddams pic.twitter.com/6l43ULNFRW

I love that they didn’t change the story or characters just to show support for LGBT families, but included them in what an average normal family looks like. I think this is how you do it. I love it normalise it by incorporating and including. More love for the Addams family https://t.co/6J7LlM4fxU
