Where The Wild Things Are + Spike Jonze = Genius!

If you ever read a book or two when you were a kid, or let Levar Burton read them to you, then there’s a good chance you had at least some interaction with ”Where the Wild Things Are”, Maurice Sendak’s classic, marvelous kids book. Spike Jonze is turning it into a movie, and will bring the story of a mischievous boy who creates his own universe in which he rules a world full of hairy, wild creatures.

A big part of what made the book so great were the illustrations, so I’ve been particularly interested to see how Jonze is going to make this thing look like in the context of a film. Last week Warner Brothers released the first two official stills from the production.
