Stellar cast for Laika studios' Wildwood film

The new feature film from American studios specializing in stop-motion is titled Wildwood. Below a new artwork and the cast of voice actors just announced.
Wildwood is based on the best-selling book written by The Decemberists lead singer Colin Meloy and illustrated by Carson Ellis. The announcement was made by Travis Knight, President and CEO of the award-winning Portland (Oregon) based animation studios LAIKA (Kubo and the Two Strings, Paranorman), announcing that the film will be directed by himself.

"Beyond Portland’s city limits lies Wildwood. You’re not supposed to go there. You’re not even supposed to know it exists. But Prue McKeel is about to enter this enchanted wonderland. Her baby brother Mac has been taken by a murder of crows into the forest’s depths, and she – along with her hapless classmate Curtis – is going to get him back. Prue might think she’s too old for fairytales, but she’s just found herself at the center of one. One filled with strange talking animals, roguish bandits and powerful figures with the darkest intentions.

A story of love, of loss, of sacrifice and secrets, and of the magic that you can find at your fingertips if you are willing to seek it.

The cast of voice actors includes: Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan, Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Jacob Tremblay, Awkwafina, Angela Bassett, Jake Johnson, Charlie Day, Amandla Stenberg, Jemaine Clement, Maya Erskine, Tantoo Cardinal, Richard E. Grant and songwriter Tom Waits.
