NETFLIX’S RELEASE DATE OF TIM BURTON’S WEDNESDAY
Netflix announces the release date of Wednesday, a supernaturally exciting series from Tim Burton starring Jenna Ortega. Wednesday will be released November 23 exclusively and worldwide on Netflix.
Jenna Ortega on her version of Wednesday Addams: “Wednesday is currently a teenager, and we’ve never seen her as a teenager before. Her snarky, snide remarks might not necessarily sound as charming when they’re coming from somebody who should probably know better than a 10-year-old girl. That was a balancing act. We didn’t want to make her sound like every other teenage girl, but we also didn’t want to make her too ignorant. And we’ve never seen her on screen this much. Any other time you’ve seen Wednesday, she’s been the one-liner, the end of a joke, she always hits it, and I think that’s what people really love about her. But in this show, every scene is Wednesday. There’s an opportunity to give her a bit more dimension, and she becomes a bit more of a real person, which I don’t think we’ve ever seen before.”
In Wednesday, we follow the school years of 16-year-old Wednesday Addams at Nevermore Academy as she tries to master her psychic abilities. In addition, she is trying to stop a gruesome serial killer terrorizing her town and is solving a murder mystery involving her parents 25 years ago. All while also having to maintain her new and complicated relationships on Nevermore.
