Squeeeeeeee! I’m so excited to see this movie. There have been rumors & drama all throughout the making of Where the Wild Things Are and seeing the trailer just totally put my mind at ease. Or, more accurately, a state of complete excitement and joy!
Like millions of other children all over the world, I loved this book. It was adventure and fear and mad at your parents and pretty dark for a kids’ book. I worried that a film adaptation would be too sanitized and Disney-fied, losing the original feel. I didn’t want to see CGI monsters belting out musical numbers. And this trailer looks so good that I actually felt myself tearing up a little bit. (For the record, I’m also PMSing right now, so that may have something to do with it. Movie trailers don’t usually make me cry. Honestly.)
