The Teen Wolf: The Movie & Wolf Pack double panel on the 2022 New York Comic Con offered footage and different particulars concerning the upcoming movie and spinoff collection, which is able to each premiere on Paramount Plus on Jan. 26, 2023.
In attendance on the panel was showrunner Jeff Davis, returning forged members Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Shelley Hennig, Dylan Sprayberry, and Khylin Rhambo in addition to new forged members Vince Mattis and Amy Workman.
Not each forged member from the beloved MTV collection is returning for the movie, with Dylan O’Brien and Arden Cho notably absent, however creator Davis mentioned the one character he insisted on revisiting was Allison, performed by Reed. “I’d always said that if we were gonna do a movie we would have to bring Crystal back,” he mentioned.
The film takes place 15 years after the top of the present. “Scott McCall is not a teen wolf anymore,” mentioned Posey. “He’s a 30-year-old wolf.” That means he’ll be moodier and broodier than ever earlier than. “Beacon Hills carries a lot of weight for Scott. Emotionally physically. He’s constantly on edge trying to save the world, trying to be the true Alpha.” In that point bounce, nonetheless, he took a break from making an attempt to be the hero and misplaced himself. “It’s the first time we’ve seen him [try to be a normal human] since the pilot,” mentioned Posey, and he’s “dealing with depression, loneliness, and anxiety” for the primary time.
He’s not the one character who has modified considerably in that point bounce. Panel attendees have been handled to an early have a look at a scene from the movie. The scene was purported to be launched by Tyler Hoechlin, who sadly acquired caught in site visitors en path to New York’s Javits Center. It confirmed his character “in a whole new light,” in line with Davis. That new mild is fatherhood and mentorship to Eli, Mattis’ character who’s “bringing the teen back to Teen Wolf,” in line with him. Check it out beneath:
The forged talked extra about how they’ve grown for the reason that present ended and what it was like to return again. Workman gushed over being accepted into the group and in addition dropped the tidbit that whereas she wasn’t a fan, she did examine Teen Wolf in appearing class.
The love fest was then reduce quick to accommodate Davis’ second lupine venture, Wolf Pack. The new collection stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rodrigo Santoro, Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson, and Tyler Lawrence Gray, all of whom have been in attendance on the panel. It wouldn’t be a Teen Wolf property with out not less than one Tyler.
Based on what little we all know, Wolf Pack is paying homage to Fear The Walking Dead’s relationship to The Walking Dead within the early years. It’s a derivative within the sense that the 2 reveals are set in the identical world however are tonally and thematically totally different. Wolf Pack is about 4 youngsters who come collectively after a California wildfire seemingly triggers a werewolf assault. Since particulars surrounding the collection remains to be fairly high secret, they began off by debuting a teaser trailer:
It felt just like the panel was dropping bread crumbs about their characters and the storyline, which is perhaps apropos for these characters who discover themselves misplaced within the woods each metaphorically and bodily. Geller performs Krisin Ramsey, an arson investigator with supernatural data. Santoro performs a park ranger named Garrett Briggs, who’s “constantly in conflict with the responsibilities of fatherhood,” and would do something for his youngsters, who within the actor’s personal phrases have “a very special connection to nature.” Those youngsters are Luna and Harlan, performed by newcomers Robertson and Gray. The different two youngsters, Everett and Blake, are performed by Jackson and Shepard.
The phrases the younger forged used to explain their characters embrace “anxious,” “lonely,” “not really happy” and “in denial.” This sense of isolation and frank exploration of psychological well being is what compelled Geller to signal onto one other venture about monsters years after Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, after drawing parallels between how these characters expertise the world and the way we’ve misplaced a way of connection within the digital and pandemic period. “Utilizing the supernatural is how we explain the things we cannot really understand,” she mentioned. “The stories that we can’t really grasp, or the ones that would be too depressing in real life and too upsetting. We use those to scare ourselves into understanding.” In Wolf Pack, that scary factor is just not having the help of a pack.
Despite being remoted and even at odds on the present, nonetheless, the forged talked about bonding earlier than filming even began — one thing that Davis mentioned occurred on Teen Wolf as nicely with Posey and O’Brien. Davis didn’t share another particulars about how the 2 reveals might or will not be linked. Perhaps that leaves extra to be revealed on Jan. 26 when Teen Wolf: The Movie and Wolf Pack hit streaming.
