Maurice Sendak's classic book comes to the big screen in an adventure tale for every generation.

In bringing this imaginative fantasy to life, Jonze leads a team of filmmakers incorporating the most dynamic elements of voice performance, live-action puppetry and computer animation.

    US President Barack Obama read the book to thousands of guests during the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll and he told the crowd at the White House that it was "one of [his] favorite books."

    I think this will be rich with wonder, and its all due to his vision. And I am glad that they are mixing live, cgi, and puppetry to make this movie. One word: AWESOME!
