Where the Wild Things Are is an upcoming 2009 film adaptation of the Maurice Sendak children’s book of the same name. The book has introduced so many children into the addictive world of imagination. Some of us still live there much of the time! My children love this book as I did long ago, but I am doubly excited about the movie as the musical score includes one of my recent faves, Arcade Fire which you will hear in this trailer.
The film will be directed by Spike Jonze and written by Dave Eggers and combines live action with suitmation (industry term for a guy in a big monster suit), animatronics and CGI. Its release is currently scheduled for October 16, 2009. Something to look forward to!
