WENDELL & WILD - On Netflix


 Jordan Peele & Henry Selick's film WENDELL & WILD follows Kat, a young Black Girl, finding a way to navigate her demons. Rising female voices in hip hop, Doechii & Baby Tate, came together to talk to journalist Gia Peppers about Black Women's Mental Health and how they navigate the music industry. It's a truly emotional and moving conversation.

From the delightfully wicked minds of Henry Selick and producer Jordan Peele, comes Wendell & Wild, an animated tale about scheming demon brothers Wendell (Keegan-Michael Key) and Wild (Peele) - who enlist the aid of 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.
