For viewers not old enough to get their Jordan Peele fix with Nope comes something a bit more age-appropriate — Wendell & Wild, a stop-motion horror movie that Peele co-wrote with director Henry Selick. Lest you get the wrong idea, what with it being animated, this perhaps still isn't intended for the youngest of horror fans out there.
In Wendell & Wild, tough orphan Kat Elliot (voiced by Lyric Ross) is forced to face her demons — literally, with Keegan-Michael Key and Peele reuniting as the titular demonic brothers. Meanwhile, Wendell (Key) and Wild (Peele) scheme to trick Kat into summoning them to the Land of the Living, where they can cause some real chaos. The movie's voice cast also includes Angela Bassett, James Hong, and Ving Rhames.
Wendell & Wild marks the newest nightmare from Selick, the visionary filmmaker behind The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and the Oscar-nominated Coraline. The film reunites Selick with his Coraline composer Bruno Coulais (himself an Oscar nominee for 2004's The Chorus).
Wendell & Wild will premiere during the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival before opening in select theaters on Oct. 21 and streaming on Netflix on Oct. 28. Watch the trailer below.
