Video Sunday: Wind’s in the East . . .
Fun stuff. Looks a lot like Harry Potter to a certain extent (mood, lighting, music, etc.). It’s the trailer for Roald Dahl’s The BFG.
Thanks to 100 Scope Notes for the link!
A bit of an older video here. In my travels recently I discovered that the entirety of the Oliver Jeffers short film version of his book Lost and Found is apparently online. Bonus! I never got to see it. For your viewing pleasure then (and it’s 24 minutes long, FYI):
Shoot. Christmas is over but only now have I learned about this new collection of Walt Kelly’s Fairy Tales. Well, there’s always next year, I guess.
Cool. I’d heard that there was a children’s theater adaptation of Grace Lin’s Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, but didn’t know it had a little trailer too. Eh, voila.
And for the off-topic video, we’re not entirely off-topic. After all, Mary Poppins was a children’s book originally. Ipso facto a flash mob for Dick Van Dyke’s 90th birthday is . . . well it works for me.
