We loved the books – and yes, we recognize this is an adaptation, it doesn’t have to be the same thing, but still, we can’t’ help but be excited at the fact that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is coming to San Diego Comic-Con.
Because Jake. And Emma. And Olive. The characters we grew to love are coming to life, and we’re both excited and a bit nauseated at the thought of this all possibly being messed up. But mostly excited.
So, here are 5 things we hope to see from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children at San Diego Comic-Con.
Eva Green in Full Costume, and some of the peculiar children, especially Jake
Doesn’t Eva Green look amazing? Like, visually, all we’ve seen from this movie is astonishing. And we just want to experience it live. We might not be one of the peculiar children, but we wouldn’t mind pretending for a day that we too can do impossible things, and maybe, even, with the help of our friends, save the world. That’s what imagination is all about, after all.
Tim Burton being, well, Tim Burton. And Ransom Riggs
When you bring a book like this to the screen you need a perfect marriage between the vision of a wonderful director and the magical words of the person who created it in the first place. So we’d like to see Tim Burton talking about what it’s like to bring this to the screen, yes, but we’d also like to see Ransom Riggs talking about what it’s like to see these characters that he created and how it feels to see them brought to life.
More footage and some glimpses at life outside Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
We’ve seen a little, but we’re already desperate for more. And that’s what San Diego Comic-Con is all about, isn’t it? Getting us even more excited for the movie! And some more footage would go a long way into doing that. And we’re not talking just about footage of the school, no; we want to see what the world is like outside Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
A list of book/movie changes
Fine, this is probably asking for too much, but it would make it easier for us book fans if we knew what to expect. We can love the adaptation, I swear, we can, we just need to manage our expectations. We already know they switched Emma and Olive’s peculiarities, but what other changes have they made? As longs as they’re not huge and spoilery, we’d really like to know!
The cast pushing the message to embrace the differences and peculiarities that make us all unique
In the end, that’s what the book is all about and we really, really want to believe the movie gets the message. We’re all special, not in spite of our differences and our peculiarities, but because of them. And we should never, ever be afraid to be who we truly are – even if we’re a tad different from the rest of the world.
