Wistful Behind-The-Scenes Featurette: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children!

peregrins-gallery8-anchor

Tim Burton and Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children are made for each other.

The unique way that Riggs created a whole world of wonder and danger from a gathering of miscellaneous antique photographs has a feel completely unlike anything I’ve ever read – and its combination of very real characters and their very different ‘peculiarities’ always struck me as something that Burton could adapt into a strange and wonderful film.

Now he has, and the first trailer for the film was almost exactly as I envisioned it.

Now 20th Century Fox has released a behind-the-scenes featurette in which Riggs, Burton, and some of the film’s cast talk about their delightfully peculiar film. Check it out after the break – along with the film’s second trailer.
