Description

Where the Wild Things Are, one of the wildest and most memorable picture books ever created, is now a movie full of adventure and mystery?—?and huge hairy creatures. Follow Max, a rambunctious boy who feels misunderstood at home, as he sets out in a tiny boat, seeking new worlds across the sea. He lands on the incredible island of the wild things, a place where being a beast isn't a bad thing. The wild things make Max their king, and he reigns over a land of friendly battles, 100-foot-tall dogs, enormous forts, and amazing chases. But life on the island is full of challenges, too. The wild things expect a lot from their king, and if he doesn't please them, there's a good chance he'll be gobbled up!
