Tim Burton ‘s recent Netflix hit from The Addams , Wednesday , inspires four official behind-the-scenes videos from the series.


The first is an amusing candid camera with Mano , out and about in New York. In the second we see the content creator Noor Badash recreate Wednesday’s look and then be surprised by the real Jenna Ortega , who then in the third we see grappling with an excursus in South American cuisine together with Luis Guzmán , her father Gomez on the show.

Finally, in the fourth video, a featurette dedicated to us Italians, with the two interpreters of the series Hunter Doohan and Emma Myers playing “Italian gestures”, trying to guess our facial expressions.
