Where the Wild Things Are Video Giveaway!

Published February 26, 2010 by Graham


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.

You, the dedicated readers of this blog, have shared the journey with us, and we want to express our appreciation by giving away copies of Where the Wild Things Are on DVD and Blu-Ray!

    I loved this beautiful movie. I loved the emotion and the beautiful dream- like world the wild things lived in. I loved the good bye scene as well.

  3. Marcee Schauer says:

    I have read Where The Wild Things Are countless times to my son. Once he had me read it to him nightly for 2 months straight and it still remains to be his favorite book. We always take it with us when we go on road trips, because it seems to comfort him.

    I was so excited for Where The Wild Things Are to come into theaters. This is one of my favorite children’s books! I saw the movie twice while it was in theaters and loved each minute of it! My favorite part is, of course K.O. saying goodbye to Max and the infamous quote “Don’t go, we’ll eat you up we love you so.” I also loved the part in which Dave replaces his torn off arm with a stick. I laughed so hard!

  12. Leah Evers says:

    This show is very interesting! The characters are done so well! The animation, costumes, puppetry, and scenery just blow my mind. Good Job, I can’t wait to purchase it for my daughter.

  13. Dawn Street says:

    Loved Wher the Wild Things Are. Higgity Pigglety looks as good.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Where the Wild Things Are is instantly one of my all time favorites! There’s just something about Max’s imagination and the escape to a far off world where you rule everything that is so appealing to me! If I could, I’d become Max in a heart beat. (:

    I Loved & enjoyed thid movie. This book was my fav book when i was a little girl, and to see it made into a movie. was jus unbeleivable.. The characters looked jus like the ones in the actual book. The movie depicted exactly how it was in the book, and with the actual book itself, the pictures on it are amazing, still to this day, I remeber the pictures in the book, how they stood out, and made me just wanna go to that world myself, and I use to pretend I was max hehehe..
    Loved it.. This movie should get many awards, beacause it truly deserves it!! :):):)

  16. Jim Walker says:

    This is a great movie. It was my favorite book when I was young and just beginning to read. Looking forward to owning it.

  17. Tim Ernst says:

    The thing I like best about this website, is it was the first place to tell me when “Where the Wild Things Are” is coming to Blu-Ray. I loved this book as a child. I have 2 shirts that I wear on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. I can’t wait for this to come to Blu-Ray!!

  18. David Roe says:

    The movie was thrilling, beautiful, down-to-earth, touching, & great fun. Glad to see something so unique which stands apart from the original book itself–which has been my favorite book since 1978.
    Thank you.


  19. I most love the over all feeling this movie gave me. I loved this book as a kid and now that I’m an adult with every day life stresses and responsibilites, it’s nice to have things like this movie to remind me of what it’s like to be a kid with no worries.

  20. Sue Leverich says:

    Imagination, uniqueness and individuality amongst the need for togetherness, group and the need for others is what I loved.

  21. Aaron says:

    I love that Mr. Jonze shared the work of OTHERS that inspired him, rather than just tooting his own horn. Great to see what makes the mad genius tick.
