Wendell & Wild: Free Preview and Q&A ()
Note: this film is not an official Festival selection, but screened as a special event.
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 of stop motion.
We're celebrating the spooky season, and we'd definitely give Wendell & Wild our Heebie Jeebies stamp of approval. This brilliant story is rated PG-13 for strong themes of loss and elements of fright, and we recommend it for older kids.
