I Know Where The Wild Things Are!

I'm sooooooo excited! One of my favorite books from my childhood, "Where The Wild Things Are" is going to be released as a 'live-action' movie, directed by Spike Jonze, and will arrive in theaters on October 16, 2009.

The original book, written by Maurice Sendak and winner of the Caldecott Medal in 1964, tells the story of Max, who one evening plays around his home, "making mischief" in a wolf costume (chasing the dog with a fork, and growling at his mom, etc.). As punishment, his mother sends him to bed without supper. In his room, a mysterious, wild forest grows out of his imagination, and Max journeys to the land of the Wild Things. The Wild Things are fearsome-looking monsters, but Max conquers them "by staring into their yellow eyes without blinking once," and he is made "the King of all Wild Things." However, he soon finds himself lonely and homesick, and he returns home to his bedroom, where he finds his supper waiting for him, still hot.

The first trailer has been released, and it is looks awesome! If the movie is as heartwarming, touching and emotional as the trailer, it's going to be great.

So here's two videos..... For those of you that don't know the story of "Where The Wild Things Are", the first video is an animated video of the storybook.

The second video is the trailer for the much anticipated film.....
