Book-to-Film: New Trailers: Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Jurassic World

I've got three trailers for you today!  First up, here's the new Cinderella trailer:

Most everything about this film looks lovely and magical.  I confess myself a little disappointed in her ballgown (it looks exactly like a ratty old dress that was in our dress-up box as children - not exactly prime ball-wearing material) but I'm still looking forward to seeing this film. 

Next, the trailer for Pan:


This film is clearly darker than the beloved children's story, but I'm intrigued.  And not just because Hugh Jackman is in it.  (Seriously, he is amazingly talented.  I will pretty much see anything he stars in.)  I'm disappointed that they cast a white girl as Tiger Lily, but everything else looks great, from what I can tell.

And, lastly, here is the new trailer for Jurassic World:

Truth be told, I don't think this film is strictly based on a book.  Michael Crichton does have a book called Jurassic World, but his book is merely a bound copy of both Jurassic Park and The Lost World together.  So this film will clearly draw heavily from the Jurassic Park books, but appears to be its own original story within that world.  I love dinosaurs, so I'm down.

Which are you most excited for?

  1. Oooh, I didn't even know there was going to be a new Peter Pan movie! But you're right, I will see anything that has Hugh Jackman.

    I'm not sure about Cinderella. It looks faithful to the books and magical. Even though we all know the story, I'm also a little ticked about them pretty much showing the entire movie apart from the kiss. But I will probably go see it anyway!

    1. You're totally right about them showing too much of the film in the trailer. It does kind of feel like the trailer is a summary rather than an advertisement. They probably took for granted that everyone already knows the story, but I'd still like to be a little surprised. Even if it's just a little bit.

  2. My girls watched the Cinderella trailer probably 10x yesterday, and I agree. I'm sure I'm going to be making 3 Cinderella dress up dresses in the coming months, and part of me is going "YAY for an easy project" and the other part is saying "Uuugh, I totally could have designed something better." The dress is decidedly not awesome.

    1. Haha! Glad they enjoyed the trailer so much. But, YES. What the heck is with that ball gown?? That is way too simple for my version of Cinderella. At least your Halloween costume-making next year won't be too insane.
