First Look at Miss Peregrine

Maybe it's too early to tell but I'm not feeling to confident at how this is looking. Like, the fact that Burton calls Miss Peregrine "a scary Mary Poppins" really worries me, because I don't think that's a very accurate way to sum her up. And I really, REALLY don't like their casting decision for Bronwyn. She is not a little girl, she's one of the older kids. 

 

I'm sure it'll be a fun movie. It has a great cast. I just think it'll be a loose adaptation and these pictures don't give me much confidence that it'll be true to the source material. We'll have to see.
