Wonder Trailer – Get Ready to Ugly Cry

25 May

As a book lover and past children’s librarian, I adore LOVE children’s books and so I don’t say this lightly – Wonder by R.J. Palacio is one of my favorite books of all time. And so I was ecstatic to see the official trailer for the new movie was released.

Let me know what you think, I’m hoping they stick close to the book’s plot, but I will say that Auggie looks far more “typical” than I imagined in my head, but I wonder if they didn’t want to push the special effects and makeup too far and still try to make it look realistic. Either way, I think the film makes the point that Auggie looks different than his classmates.

I’m hoping to create a program in October for Bullying Prevention Month and I’m thinking about a family book discussion using Wonder because it is so accessible to a wide range of age groups.

    I agree that Augie looks more normal than I imagined. I remember his description as having one of his eyes at cheek level and I don’t think they could pull that off with a child actor. Still I hope this movie raises acceptance levels.
