Where the Wild Things AreWhere the Wild Things Are as a movie has been in production for about 4 years now and we’re finally getting close to the being able to see it on the big screen. It’s out 11th December and we here at HeyUGuys can’t wait to see it.

The guys over at VBS.TV have just sent us a brand new featurette exclusive to their site which features an interview with author / illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak and director of the new movie, Spike Jonze.

In the clip, Sendak talks about how the book took a long time to be recognised as a piece of work that would capture kids’ imagination everywhere. He talks about the press he received being very bad but goes on to talk about how Jonze was the perfect man to take this project on as a movie. To Jonze, Sendak’s approval was paramount to the film being made.

I’ve embedded the interview with Jonze and Sendak below but once you’ve watched this, head over to VBS.TV as they have more interviews with the following:
