I’ve loved Maurice Sendak’s chilldren’s book Where The Wild Things are ever since I was…a children. And I’ve always wondered what it would be like as an animated cartoon or feature film.
Well, if the movie turns out to be anything as magnificent as the trailer (now available on Apple.com), then director Spike Jonze has truly given us the best of both worlds.
Warner Bros’ Where The Wild Things Are is already shaping up to be a visual live-action/puppetry tour de force, and I for one can’t wait to see it. It opens in theaters October 16th and features the voices of Forest Whitaker, Paul Dano, James Gandolfini, Catherine O’Hara, Lauren Ambrose, Tom Noonan, and Michael Berry Jr.
