I think I love this trailer for the film. The monsters are giant puppets! I love giant puppets. I love giant puppets so much more than I love CGI.
I mean, remember the Muppets? They appealed to the child/adult audience long before Shrek. Jasper Fforde once said in a reading that his father, who was very serious and intellectual and the UK's 24th chief cashier (he signed the bank notes), would always stop everything for 'Pigs in Space.'
I just liked that anecdote and wanted to work it in somewhere. Now I just hope I have it right.
