Coming Soon: Oregon Artists Unite in Making of “Wildwood” Featuring Mahershala Ali

Keep your eyes out for “Wildwood,” an animated action/adventure flick about a girl named Prue leaving Portland’s city limits in search of her brother, who’s been kidnapped by a murder of crows. The film was created by Oregon’s Laika Studios, the stop-motion animation company known for movies like “Kubo and the Two Strings” and “Coraline.” The story is adapted from a YA fantasy series by Colin Meloy, who is also the lead singer of Portland’s The Decemberists.

Oscar-winning Mahershala Ali of “Moonlight” and “House of Cards” fame joins the all-star cast of this ambitious movie. Ali voices Brendan, the Bandit King of Wildwood, who assists Prue in her mission in the enchanted forest.
