Netflix stop-motion animation ‘Wendell and Wild’ released a trailer, the painting style dreamy weird dark, quite exciting.
Selick and the comedic pair summon a new nightmare in the form of Wendell and Wild, as shown in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming stop-motion-animated movie. Peele and Key play the titular Wendell and Wild, respectively, two demon brothers who enlist the aid of a young girl, Kat (This Is Us star Lyric Ross), to summon them to the Land of the Living.
“Everyone’s got demons. My demons have names,” Kat says in the footage, which arrived on Tuesday to kick off the Netflix and Chills slate of announcements.
Kat, described as a tough teen with a lot of guilt, demands something in return of this demonic duo, which propels them on an adventure that defies the laws of life and death.
The trailer shows Kat reliving the memory of her parents’ death. She was in the backseat of their car when they got into an accident, and she may have been the one that distracted them in the first place. It appears Kat was then forced to live in a group home for children run by a nefarious money-grubbing lady, as chronicled in a sequence done in Selick’s signature stop-motion style of animation. As the teaser warns us, “Be careful what you wish for.”
Selick wrote Wendell and Wild with Peele, who is just coming off a successful debut of horror film Nope in theaters.
