First Look Teaser for Henry Selick's Stop-Motion 'Wendell and Wild'
"Do it again." Netflix has revealed a fun early teaser trailer in the form of a "YouTube playlist" for the stop-motion animated film from director Henry Selick, who hasn't made any new film since Coraline in 2009. This time he's teaming up with Jordan Peele, who is producing and co-wrote the screenplay with Selick and is providing one of the voices in the film, for a new stop-motion feature in the works at Netflix. Wendell & Wild is about two hellishly funny personal demons of a teen named Kat, which face off against a nun and a pair of goth teens. The teaser is actually a YouTube music playlist, featuring songs playing with an animated boombox. "Keep an eye on the boombox for new tracks, new sneak peeks, and more punk stuff." The only voice cast announced so far: Jordan Peele & Keegan-Michael Key. It has been way too long since we've seen a new Henry Selick stop-motion film! Can't wait to see more from this soon. For now, enjoy the music.
