Wansday Addams looks a little different these days. A teaser of the Tim Burton-directed Netflix family series, "Wansday," published the other day shows 19-year-old Jenna Ortega in the famous role. The only daughter of the iconic family appears on screen as a stern and cold-blooded teenager. However, her famous outfit, a black dress with a white collar, has undergone changes - white "snowflakes" appeared on the fabric, and the corners of the collar were significantly stretched. Which creates more of a pop-punk style than the usual eccentric Addams of Gothic. Wansday's dark makeup and scythe-hanging braids have a modern flavor, and an ominous severed hand rests on her shoulder during the teaser.
