If you’re a fan of the books, seeing this on Loop Day was probably pretty cool. As someone who hasn’t had the pleasure of reading Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children yet, I got pretty much nothing out of that. I do have Flanagan and Allen stuck in my head now, so that’s something.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When his beloved grandfather leaves Jake clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds a magical place known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers… and their powerful enemies. Ultimately, Jake discovers that only his own special “peculiarity” can save his new friends.
