Wednesday’s breakout star is without a doubt Thing! Thing has been a fan favourite since the beginning of the Addams Family.
He’s Wednesday’s partner in crime in the new series, and the only one whose injuries brought our otherwise emotionless heroine to tears.
Netflix recently released the Thing onto the streets of New York City, and his interactions with people are, to put it mildly, amusing.
On Twitter, the streamer posted a new video of Thing ‘doing his thing,’ writing, “We unleashed Thing on the streets of New York City to surprise and delight Wednesday fans.”
Passers-reactions by’s range from panicked screams and crying children to pure amazement. Thing is seen skateboarding, scaring pigeons, and befriending dogs.
He also rides the subway and takes selfies, much to the delight of onlookers. The most entertaining aspect, however, is him startling people simply by his presence. This only serves to demonstrate how “normies” would react if Thing appeared in the real world.
Tim Burton and showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar made an interesting decision on Wednesday to cast a person as the Thing, as was done in the past, rather than creating him digitally.
Victor Dorobantu, a Romanian close-hand magician, plays him. Previously released images by the streamer show the grilling process of bringing Thing to life, as Dorobantu is seen dressed head to toe in a blue suit and posing in various awkward positions to accurately portray the characters.
The hard work paid off because viewers truly believe Thing is sentient, and everyone gasped when he was stabbed to a column in the finale episode.
Wednesday is a brilliant reimagining of the Addams family’s daughter, who had previously been limited to morbid acts and witty one-liners.
Taking her out of the traditional setup and placing her in the Nevermore Academy made her more approachable.
Her creators gave her a worthy emotional arc while maintaining her essence. Wednesday is solving a multi-layered mystery that involves her parents, her new school, and her friends in the new series. The series is well-suited to the modern era and has been a huge success for the streamer.
The series also stars Gwendoline Christie as principal Larissa Weems, Hunter Doohan as Tyler, Percy Hynes White as Xavier, Emma Myers as Enid Sinclair, Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia Addams, and Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, in addition to Jenna Ortega in the title role.
