Netflix has officially unveiled the new stop-motion movie ‘Wendell & Wild’ from directors Henry Selick and Jordan Peele, with a brand new trailer for the film set to hit the streaming platform on October 21st.
Starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the film is described as a tale of “the hellishly funny demons of a teen named Kat.”
“Wendell & Wild is an animated tale about scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Jordan Peele) – who enlist the aid of 13-year-old Kat Elliot – a tough teen with a load of guilt – to summon them to the Land of the Living. But what Kat demands in return leads to a brilliantly bizarre and comedic adventure like no other, an animated fantasy that defies the law of life and death, all told through the handmade artistry of stop motion.”
