The epic wait is finally over! Where the Wild Things Are is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD this Tuesday, March 2nd. The special features include a veritable bounty of videos from Spike and Lance Bangs revealing the exciting chaos of production from every angle, including all the pranks, mutinies and vampire attacks. Most excitingly, the Blu-Ray release includes a brilliant brand new 23-minute adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s Higglety Pigglety Pop!, directed by dream team Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski of Madame Tutli-Putli fame and starring the voices of Meryl Streep and Forrest Whitaker.
It’s been a wild ride on this humble blog. The movie Where the Wild Things Are started as a fleeting thought in Spike’s mind and went through years of preparation, imagination, re-imagination, shooting and editing before We Love You So sprouted up last spring, just when the film was blossoming from the quiet final stages of post-production to a roaring sea of buzz and promotion, followed by fan-fueled frenzy and trips abroad to foreign shores. Finally Where the Wild Things Are is a disc that you can hold in your hands and watch until your eyes fall out of your heads.
