Trailer for ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is Full of Wonder

The first trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a beautiful world full of wonder. This trailer reminds me of a cross between Harry Potter and the X-Men films, does it get any better than that? Tim Burton has pulled out all the stops in this beautiful film. Congratulations Miss Peregrine, you have officially made it on my must-see list.

There is a special kind of whimsical that Tim Burton has captured in this footage that is rarely seen in movies. It could be the combination of imagination, wonder, and over-saturated hues. What ever it is, I am completely sold. This is the fist Tim Burton film I am looking forward to in a long time.

Eva Green holds down the lead as the honorary Miss Peregrine. She takes in out cast children with special abilities and peculiar gifts (as the trailer calls them). Asa Butterfield is Jacob, a boy who seems born into a destiny. He was meant to protect the children, almost as if the trailer wants you to believe that this is his peculiar gift.

The first images that have come from the set, are strange to say the least, but the trailer is just brilliant. Those of you with a special love for strange, new worlds need to get ready, because Miss Peregrine is the film for you.

For those of you that are fans of the novel, by Ransom Riggs, that this film is adapted from, you may notice that the roles of two characters have been swapped for the big screen. The roles of Olive and Emma seem to have switched places. In the novel it is Olive who befriends Jacob and brings him into Miss Peregrine’s time-wimey world, where as the trailer shows us it si Emma who Jacob meets. This is not the only swap between the two characters. Their powers or ‘gifts’ have also been apparently switched. The film also takes a few liberties with the extent to which some of these gifts are used, but it still looks fantastic.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children hits theaters on September 30, 2016.
