International Friend Yamil sent me the heads up on the Trailer for Where the Wild Things Are, and I have to say I am conflicted. Check it out:
I watched it a second time without the music, and it felt more whimsical and heartfelt. I think the music threw me off. The visuals are dead on with the children’s book, and I have no problem with them expanding the story. The children’s book was all of 30 pages and hardly any text, so I expected nothing less, and it looks like a great story dealing with the emotions of a child instead of just a lesson about how parents still love you even if they send you to bed without your supper.
Still, that music didn’t work for me.
