We’re getting a first look at The Thing, the disembodied hand featured in Wednesday, Tim Burton’s live-action Addams Family series for Netflix. Netflix dropped the 27-second teaser Wednesday on social media ahead of Geeked Week next week (captioned “Enjoy this marketing ploy.”) See it below.
The coming-of-age comedy, written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar and directed by Burton, stars Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams during her years at Nevermore Academy. It’s described as a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery. In the series, Wednesday attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
