Our first glimpse at Herman and Lily Munster The Munsters MovieThe upcoming adaptation of Rob Zombie’s classic sitcom has been revealed. As of now, Zombies is working hard on pre-production for the new film which includes recent scouting locations in Budapest. This week, he also revealed the blueprints of the Munster family home, which he built as a set for the film.
In his latest Instagram post, Rob Zombie Gave another glimpse to his followers Munsters. This time around, they revealed some concept artwork of Lily and Herman Munster’s sleepwear wardrobe. One One Image shows Lily Munster wearing a handmade spider-web print gown with noticeable “destroyed edges.” A second image reveals Harman’s sleeping look, which includes a nightcap with skulls, skull buttons and platform home slippers.

The characters in the artwork look very much the same as they were shown in the original TV series, so it may further suggest that Zombie wants to make his film a very faithful entertainment.
