Wendell & Wild release updates, cast, synopsis, teaser and more


A new stop-motion animated film from the wicked minds of Academy Award-nominated director Henry Selick and Academy Award-winner Jordan Peele is coming your way this fall on Netflix! Selick and Peele co-wrote Wendell & Wild alongside Keegan-Michael Key, Henry Selick, and Clay McLeod Chapman.

Not only does the film sound like tons of fun, but it will reunite long-time collaborators Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who you might recall worked together on the comedy series Key and Peele. Emmy Award-winning actor Keegan-Michael Key will play Wendell while Peele will star opposite him as his brother Wild.

Find out everything we know so far about the new film below.

Wendell & Wild synopsis

Here is the official synopsis for the movie, courtesy of 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.

Wendell & Wild release date updates

We don’t know the exact release date yet. Netflix announced today that the movie will be released on the platform in October 2022. It looks like they are timing it to release for the Halloween season, which fits with the movie’s spooky theme.

Wendell & Wild cast

We don’t have a trailer to offer yet, but Netflix did release a fun cast reveal video that you can watch here:

Henry Selick, the mastermind director behind movies like James and the Giant Peach, Coraline and Nightmare Before Christmas, will direct and produce.
