Looks and sounds great. Feel like Derek Jacobi is going to make for a more assured Cole Hawling than the doddering and slightly decrepit Lionel Jeffries Cole Hawlings of radio past.
nothing wrong with lionel's portrayal in my book
Nothing against the late Lionel Jeffries performance at all (That adaptation from ‘95 is still probably the most book accurate one we’ve ever gotten) it was just me noting the difference in interpretations.
It's a lovely trailer, but it doesn't half feel peculiar hearing that music - or even thinking about the Box of Delights in the middle of June. I do wonder if it'll do as well releasing now as it would if it went out later in the year. Maybe October would be late enough that people might buy it in anticipation of Christmas, but early enough for word of mouth and reviews to go round, and to not be competing too much with people budgeting for Christmas shopping.
Hmm. I admit I did not have a clue what this release was about. But after seeing the trailers, I made an effort to track down the blurbs and I can vaguely remember once watching something where miniaturized kids travel in a boat. As a kid. Long ago. I think I will check out the series with Troughton on YouTube. As it sounds, this might be indeed something I would be REALLY into. This sounds like something I would have adored as a kid. Then I can decide if I want to buy into the BF version.
