Halloween will have a new premiere of major animation on netflixis the animated comedy Wendell & Will, co-written and produced by director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Jordan Peele (nope, get-out).
Peele stars alongside fellow comedian Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) as the main characters, a pair of demon siblings who deceive troubled orphan Kat Elliott (played by star of This Is Us Lyric Ross) to summon them to the land of the living, resulting in exactly the kind of mayhem you’d expect from a dark kid-friendly horror comedy. Selick will also direct the film, making this his first feature film since Coraline (2009).
Angela Bassett (Black Panther), James Hong (Kung Fu Panda) and Ving Rhames (pulp fiction) complete the stellar cast of this stop-motion film in which it seems that Kat will literally and figuratively fight her demons to save the world, or at least her classmates.
Wendell & Wild It will arrive in select theaters in the United States on October 21 before its Netflix streaming premiere on October 28.
