Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are is undoubtedly one of the most prolific children’s collections, having introduced and influenced countless artists at a young age to detailed illustration with strong narrative backing. Legendary director Spike Jonze has now adapted the acclaimed children's book into a full-length film, set to release on October 16, 2009. Jonze’s film uses a combination of natural lighting, moody color pallet, and indie rock styling's of The Arcade Fire soundtrack which embraces the spirit of the book, yet includes subtle angst with an aura of loneliness and live action. We cannot wait to see the final product in October but thankfully, Juxtapoz readers will get a massive treat with a full feature article with Mr. Jonze himself in our upcoming Special May 100th Issue. We know, we’re tingling with anticipation ourselves.
