Wendell & Wild, the new grim and gloomy stop-motion horror film from visionary director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline), has been released on Netflix, making this one of the most anticipated films of the year.
Kat Elliot (voiced by Lyric Ross) is a teenage Goth girl who is forced to confront her demons in a new trailer. Wendell (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (voiced by Jordan Peele) are two of the main themes for the film. In the film, the young protagonist is guided by a nun to confront her fears and discovers the demons that haunt her dreams.
The new trailer and images highlight the story of Wendell & Wild, which might be Selick's finest work yet. Every scene is filled with terror, and the stop-motion animation highlights the hidden horrors hidden in the night. The film also has a creepy green light, which will make it more difficult to wait for the film's release.
Wendell & Wild, based on an unpublished book by Selick and Clay McLeod Chapman, has been turned into a screenplay by Selick and Peele. The soundtrack is provided by Selick, Peele, and Win Rosenfeld for Monkeypaw, and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein for The Gotham Group. Executive producers include Lindsay Williams and Eddie Gamarra for The Gotham Group, and Ian Cooper for Monkeypaw.
The animated film Wendell & Wild will be released on Netflix on October 28, just in time for Halloween. Check out the new trailer, images, and the official synopsis below.
Wendell & Wild is an animated play about scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Peele), who enlist the aid of Kat Elliot, a tough teen with a lot of guilt, who takes them to the Land of the Living, all told through the handmade art of stop motion.
