Wendell & Wild is written by Peele and Henry Selick and directed by Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline).

The film follows Kat (Lyric Ross), a troubled teen haunted by her past, who must confront her personal demons, Wendell & Wild (Key and Peele) to start a new life in her old hometown.

Angela Bassett, James Hong and Ving Rhames also have roles.

The new teaser shows Kat (Ross) and Sister Helley (Bassett) embark on a green-tinged vision quest, with Kat's shadow puppet-inspired memories invading her mind. The trailer ends with Buffalo Belzer (Rhames) emerging from the ground.

Netflix previously released a teaser featuring an aquatic creature and a mouth growing on the back of a hand.

Wendell & Wild will have its world premiere Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival ahead of its release Oct. 28 on Netflix.
