Quvenzhané Wallis, the breakout star of "Beasts of the Southern Wild," won't be seen in theaters again until Steve McQueen's "Twelve Years a Slave" finds a release date, but she'll be present at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in a short titled "Bonecrusher."

The first preview of the 12-minute film shows the now 9-year-old actress kicking and screaming in a car before arriving at some kind of prayer tent.
