Where the Crawlers Sing is a fun and entertaining film starring Matt Damon and directed by Steven Knight. This is an excellent adaptation of Charles M. Schulz’s Where the Wild Things Are, another one of my all time favorite comic strips. The movie takes place in a alternate version of our world called the Crawlspace, a place where animals live underground, including people. Animals can fall to the Crawlspace through the tunnels created by a giant worm, but there are other dangers too, including a huge rat who will attack anything that comes too close. This is the first movie in a long series based on Where the Wild Things Are.
As of today, we are still waiting for the sequel of Where the Crawls Sing, which will be subtitled Where the Wild Things Are 2. We will probably have more announcements about the movie as the months go by, so keep your eyes open. There has also been word that the release dates for the sequels of Where the Crawls Sing and Where the Wild Things Are will be moving around from around 2021 to around 2021.
What makes this version of Where the Wild Things Are different than the previous one is that it introduces two new main characters, Jenny Slate (Hermione Granger) and Mike Weiss (David Strathairn). The first part of the movie has the group following the clues left by Jenny in the first novel, while the second part has them traveling to the Crawlspace to investigate what happened there. The two new characters in Where the Crawls Sing are Owen Hunt ( Jude Law) and Billy Dent ( Kris Sims). The three main characters join forces to find the meaning of their friend’s missing voice and save the others.
I must say that Where the Crawls Sing is a much better film that Where the Wild Things Are. Where the Wild Things Are was an okay adaptation of a book that was much more successful and had a better plot. But where the crawls sing takes the story in a completely different direction. I feel that the original is much better because it doesn’t take anything away from what made the book so successful.
Where the Wild Things Are takes place in the Crawlspace, an underground facility in which the government fears humans will overrun it. A massive amount of money has been allocated to creating a top security cordon to prevent any human from entering. Two teenagers, two boys, are sent to this facility to search for their friend, Jenny Slate. Their quest takes them through a series of underground tunnels, where they encounter the mad professor, Doctor Ellis. He threatens to shut down power to the caves unless the group provides information leading to his discovery of a cure for terminal cancer.
With help from the local guides, the group makes it to the Crawlspace where they discover what they’re searching for. An abundance of wild life leads them to the realization that the facility was meant for humans but is now overrun by mutated creatures. The Crawdads sing is used as background music throughout the film and in the end credits. The song is performed by the late Daisy Edwards and her husband, Larry; both were featured on the first “Where the Wild Things Are” album.
Where the Crawdads Sing is a much more successful film adaptation than its precursor. While the first film had one huge achievement, Where the Wild Things Are establishes a much bigger theme before taking us on to the next episode. This allows the show to grow in strength as it progresses and introduces new characters. Taylor John Smith also brings some of his Daisy Edwards enthusiasm to the role of David Blaine, while also providing a much more believable performance than the previous versions.
Where the Crawdads Sing is a fun and entertaining film that perfectly captures the essence of the book. It provides a nice break for fans of the series to catch up and enjoy the light-hearted humor that the series has become known for. The book’s protagonist, Daisy, is a character very similar to Taylor John Smith’s Daisy in the Fox 2021 series. The difference is that her father is not a part of the story, making the audience identify with her more. In an exciting and funny episode of Where the Wild Things Are, we finally get to see what happens when the Crawlers sing, and find out about the frightening secret behind their songs.
