Take a school of unusual children, add some sublime actors, twist it with a quirky director, and gift it with a song from one of Britain’s most indeliable songstresses and you are on to a winner.
While Tim Burton may have had a series of flops, it looks as though he is right on track with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is based on a book by Ransom Riggs. It revolves around a twisted Mary Poppins who takes unusual children into her home. Each resident there has special powers and…powerful enemies. New boy Jake discovers that his own “peculiarity” can save his new friends.
While the featurette is fantastic, let’s take the time to look at the wonderful song by Florence Welch – Wish That You Were Here. How amazing is it? Aren’t you just overcome with goose-bumps?
Let’s listen again, shall we?
MISS PEREGRINE’S SCHOOL HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN IS OUT 30th SEPTEMBER!
