Fans of the Addams Family series have something to smile about as a new teaser for the series's spin-off "Wednesday" was released recently. Find out interesting details about the movie's main character Jenna Ortega, who will play Wednesday Addams.


Over a year after announcing that Jenna Ortega would headline in the "Wednesday" series, Netflix has finally dropped the first footage of the actress, who will be starring as Wednesday Addams in the Tim Burton's Addams Family series.

The short teaser clip was released on June 6, 2022, the first day of Netflix's geeked weekend. The clip does not highlight any footage from the movie but shows extended shots of Wednesday Addams tying her pigtails before stepping into the frame and straightening the collar of her dress.

The teaser also shows an appearance by Thing, who joins Wednesday Addams in snapping along to the iconic Addams Family theme.

The comedy, directed by Burton, has been described as "a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams's years as a student at Nevermore Academy" as she tries to master her emerging psychic ability. Although a release date is yet to be announced, viewers can only hope the series premiers sooner than expected.




Ortega may be very young, but she has accomplished a lot in her acting career. She began her journey in the movie industry at nine years old and has bagged several roles, including the role of Harley in "Stuck In The Middle," a Disney Channel series.

The young actress has also featured in other Disney productions and award-winning television series and movies. Today, she is famous for starring as Young Jane in the iconic comedy-drama "Jane The Virgin" and Darcy in the Netflix sitcom "Richie Rich."


Apart from bagging roles, Ortega also has a few awards for her name. At the 2022 MTV Movie and TV Awards held on June 6, she earned the Most Frightened Performance Award for "Scream." Hopefully, the actress will achieve more incredible things in her stellar career.


Ortega is 19 years old. She is a Libra, as she was born on September 27, 2002, in Coachella Valley, California. The young actress has quite an exciting life away from the big screen. Ortega loves spicy food and once admitted that she could drink Tapatío from the bottle.


Also, the award-winning actress is a strong advocate for LGBTQ rights, immigration rights, and gun control. In addition to being an advocate, Ortega is an author and has one book to her name titled "IT'S ALL LOVE: Reflections for Your Heart and Soul."


Ortega has a unique ethnicity. The actress is 75 percent Mexican and 25 percent Puerto Rican. The actress's father is a hundred percent Mexican, but his family moved to California generations before he was born. As such, Ortega's father cannot speak Spanish, but the actress's mother is bilingual.

Regarding her extended family, Ortega's maternal great-grandmother is Mexican, but she migrated to the United States from a small ranch near Sinaloa, Mexico. Despite the diversity in her ethnicity, Ortega says she is very proud of her heritage.
