Can September come any faster?! This has been the main thought coursing through my head after seeing the amazing trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
I’m a huge fan of the book, and I’ve been excitedly waiting for news on this movie ever since they started casting in 2014. I was a bit nervous as the release date for the movie shifted from July 31, 2015 to March 4, 2016 then to December 25, 2016 then finally to the official release date of September 31, 2016, but now I’m filled with nothing but excitement for the release.
Set to star Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, and Ella Purnell, and directed by Tim Burton, Miss Peregrine’s is sure to be a hit!
Now for those of you who haven’t read the book yet (which is something you should fix before you see the movie!) I’ll fill you in on what’s happening.
When Jake’s (Butterfield) beloved grandfather leaves him clues to a mystery that spans different times and worlds, he discovers Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a refuge for children with some pretty incredible abilities. As Jake learns more about the residents and their powers the mystery and danger deepen.
Now that’s all I’m going to say about the plot because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I would highly recommend reading the book before you go to see the movie in September! I’ll plan on posting a review of the movie after I watch it.
With two more books in the series this could be the beginning of a new franchise, now that The Hunger Games series is over and The Divergent series is coming to a close in 2017. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more about this movie and getting a new trailer or some new stills in the future. What do you think of the movie trailer? Are you as excited as I am?
