Here’s the official synopsis of Wendell & Wild from Netflix:
From the delightfully wicked minds of Henry Selick and Jordan Peele, comes Wendell & Wild, an animated tale about scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Peele) – who enlist the aid of 13-year-old Kat Elliot – a tough teen with a load of guilt – to summon them to the Land of the Living. But what Kat demands in return leads to a brilliantly bizarre and comedic adventure like no other, an animated fantasy that defies the law of life and death, all told through the handmade artistry of stop motion.
Selick and Peele co-wrote the story, which Selick directs. The film features music by Academy Award nominee Bruno Coulais (Les Choristes).
Wendell & Wild does not yet have a Netflix release date.
