Wednesdaythe series based on the iconic character of The Addams Family directed by Tim Burton for NetflixIt already has a release date. The fiction, starring Jenna Ortega, will reach the streaming service, of course, on a Wednesday, specifically on November 23.
“Wednesday is already a teenagerwe have never seen it as such and we had not seen it so much on screen either. Her sarcastic and sassy comments don’t have to sound so charming when they come from someone who probably should know more than a 10-year-old girl. It is a balancing act, as we didn’t want her to sound like any other teenager, but we also didn’t want her to be too ignorantOrtega points out.
The actress also recalls that “every time we’ve seen Wednesday, she’s been the protagonist of a joke, the funniest, she’s always right, and I think that’s what people love about her”, but highlights that as a novelty “in this series, every scene is Wednesday. “There’s a chance give it a little more dimensionand he becomes a more real person, which I don’t think we’ve ever seen before“, he concludes.
