A brilliantly bizarre and comedic adventure told through stop motion from producer Jordan Peele and the director of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS


From the delightfully wicked minds of director Henry Selick and producer Jordan Peele comes an animated tale about two scheming demon brothers who enlist the aid of tough teen Kat to summon them to the Land of the Living. But what the guilt-stricken Kat and her classmate Raul demand in return leads to a brilliantly bizarre and comedic adventure like no other.

Featuring vibrant voicework from Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Lyric Ross, Angela Bassett, Ving Rhames, and Sam Zelaya, Netflix’s WENDELL & WILD is a carnivalesque fantasy told through the handmade artistry of stop motion from the director of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and CORALINE.

This film will be followed by a Q&A.

Presented in partnership with Geeks Out and ASIFA-East
