The first images of the peculiar children have been revealed from Tim Burton’s adaptation of the Miss Peregrine novel by Ransom Riggs.
Much to the excitement of peculiars everywhere, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first images from Tim Burton’s film adaptation of the 2011 best-selling novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
The book follows the story of Jacob Portman, a boy whose search for the truth behind the strange bedtime yarns his grandfather used to weave leads him to an island with a ruined orphanage covered in layers of dust and secrets.
Author Ransom Riggs crafted the narrative around the unusual subjects in his personal collection of vintage found photos, enhanced with some mild Photoshop work to add a touch of magic and mystery.
While it’s obviously way too early to decide if this movie will do the source material the justice it deserves, it’s safe to say the Burton’s peculiar children look like they jumped right off the pages of Riggs’ imaginative series.
