And it’s a stop-motion from the director of Nightmare Before Christmas.
Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele, known as comedy duo Key and Peele, are reuniting for a new film on Netflix. But even more exciting than that, it’s a new animated film from Henry Sellick, who directed Coraline, The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach.
Deadline reports that the film, titled Wendell & Wild, stars the duo as a pair of demon brothers who convince a trouble teen to summon them into the Land of the Living.
But the teen, Kat, demands something in return for her help, and that something leads them all on a journey between life and death, all in beautiful stop-motion.
