Where The Wild Things Are

Updated on November 4, 2013

Where The Wild Things Are: A Timeless Movie

"Where The Wild Things Are" is 2009 movie release of a Sendak's 1963 book. As I write this, it has a  69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is not a bad result. The major criticism is that, while it is a very good movie, it is too "heavy" for some children. Personally, I like it when a Hollywood movie offers some depth and I respect a director who does not feel compelled to give the same rosey ending to every movie. On this site, you wll find "Where the Wild Things Are" Merchandise. I personally think that the BEST is Max's footed pajamas. Kids love footed pajamas. Imagine dressing your kid up as Max! What a great gift idea for your fan of Where The Wild Things Are!

Wild Wisdom

Did you know.....the mosters were originally HORSES!!!

From Wikipedia: The original concept for the book featured horses instead of monsters. According to Sendak, his publisher suggested the switch when she discovered that he could not draw horses, but thought that he "could at the very least draw 'a thing'!" He replaced the horses with caricatures of his aunts and uncles, whom he had studied critically in his youth as an escape from their weekly visits to his family's Brooklyn home. When working on the opera adaptation of the book with Oliver Knussen, Sendak gave the monsters the names of his relatives: Tzippy, Moishe, Alexander, Emile, and Bernard.

Three Animated Interpretations of - "Where The Wild Things Are"

This is really interesting! I have found three different versions of the same movie. One woman narrates and two men. One man sounds very aggressive, the other sounds very sleepy. Compare the three and see which you like best!

The biggest controversy is: Who is the intended audience?

This will likely be a movie that the entire family will love or the entire family will hate. The only way to know for sure is to see it.

DVD: Animated Version of Where The Wild Things Are

This is NOT the movie that is released in October 2009. This is an animated version released one year earlier in 2008. However, this comes with 5 more stories. Might be a good alternative.

      Although I haven't seen the movie, the book "Where the Wild Things Are" is fantastic! Like Nan's, my kids are too old for the costumes, but the Max costume is adorable!

      I LOVED reading Where the Wild things Are when I was a kid. so much so that when my eldest son was little I bought a copy just so I could read it to him. I now read that same book to my two youngest boys.

      I just wish they were still little enough they'd want to be dressed up in some of these adorable pyjamas.

      5* and you've been blessed
